Can I call this post 99b....

Its just that I am not ready to call this post 100 as my give away goodies are not quite ready...
so I am calling this 99b....

I wanted to show you the lovely items Lesley from Tintocktap sent me...
I managed to post her parcel yesterday... and I hope it arrives safely and that she likes it as much as I enjoyed making it...
This was the cosy crochet swap organised by Mel and it was really tricky trying to crochet something cosy in last weeks heat wave... but look what Lesley has made me....

A Fabulous cushion... it is soooo clever and pretty...
I also received a pom pom key ring kit... a ribbon flowers project pack and a crochet book....
and don't forget the double chocolate fingers... (they are chilling in the fridge)



The cushion was soon grabbed by Jamie, and was grabbed back by me...


It really clever though... its a square that has been sewn around the cushion and then has an envelope style opening with buttons... how cute is that... under the front flower is a recessed bit that I haven't looked at hard enough yet to work out how Lesley did it...


The book is half crochet and half knitting, and I have spied fingerless gloves, beanie hats, and a lovely afghan blanket... but the afghan takes 24 balls of wool and if I managed to get the wool for £2.50 a ball it would cost me £60 to make it... Yarn work is not cheap is it....
but it is oh so addictive! ;D

Thank you so much for my lovely parcel...
you are way too kind...
Take care
Alex

Hi Alex!
Your goodies look great - lovely, lovely!
A note about Afternoon tea: I am going to postpone the afternoon tea as so many people who want to come are now unable to do so. I hope this doesn't mess up any plans you may have made! Maybe we can all have tea in the autumn when things may be easier for people.
Happy weekend.
