Watch this Space - what's coming soon ....

I received my subscription copy of Cross Stitch Gold today, so I will take some photos and do a full review of charts and features of interest. Its a great copy! Plenty for all tastes and preferences.

What's in "the mystery parcel"? ..... I have been trying to pick up a parcel from the post office after several attempts by the delivery van to bring it to us (poor guy, we are always out during the day!). When I got to the post office sorting office this afternoon, it had closed early (apparently, Thursdays is their afternoon off!) Frustration abounds, what is in the parcel, who is it from??? I think it must be from my brother who sent some stuff over for Christmas, but DH told me he is still waiting for a book for me from Amazon as he received a mail to say it would be 4 - 6 weeks.... either way, its going to be fun finding out. I will try tomorrow morning before going to University, so watch this space, I could have exciting news, you never know ;-D

In the meantime, here is Romantic Card for DH's Valentines Day (we buy each other 1 Romantic Card and 1 Silly or Funny Card - we do keep the card shops in business, but its just a tradition for us!). Marks & Spencer (the wonderful store where everyone buys their knickers from :-) had a special promotion yesterday. There was a lady sitting by the card section doing Free Calligraphy messages in every card purchased. So I found a nice card and she used her lovely inks to do the message. Isn't it fab?

That is a great card! I love doing those Valentines cards and little gifts I think it helps keep the romance alive. It's the little that things that count. :D

This is a very nice idea! You remind me I should think of it, too...
Thank you for your kindest words, Ali! I'm very touched.
Je suis très impressionnée: tu parles bien français! (c'est rare chez les British). Passes-tu tes vacances en France?
A bientôt!
