#51 A Wonderful Gift

Some time ago you may remember I was informed I was the lucky winner of a gift from notes from under the mountain for becoming her 150th follower. Finally today my gift arrived from the other side of the world!

Turns out Lee has relatives who were originally from Yorkshire so that was a happy coincidence! Its strange, so many people seem to have one relative or another who decide to pack up and move to the other side of the world, in my case my Grandma's sister and her children.

Anyway, look how gorgeous this is! A beautiful little note book, I feel very lucky to have something so beautiful - I think I may never dare use it as it is just too precious!

Thank You Lee! :)
 On to my own stitching, Lily has a few more stitches in her, forming the bottom on her eye and a couple of eyelashes so far. I'm hoping this weekend I will get plenty done as I don't have David here to annoy distract me.

The snow has been falling here today and it making every attempt to settle, it's really starting to feel festive :)

Hope you all have a great weekend!
