She's done it again!

Yep, she most certainly has. Surprised me, that is. I received a totally unexpected envelope today, from.......... Dorthe! She really is the most thoughtful friend anybody could ever have. She gifted me with the most beautiful Valentine's Day fabric collage. It is dreamy, and romantic, and so perfectly personalised, right down to a tiny little L. But see for yourself, and be prepared to drool -



See the tiny little L on the left? Isn't that just too cute -



Exquisite, isn't it? HUGE thank you to you, Dorthe.

And what have I been up to? Not an awful lot, it seems, well not a lot in the way of crafting. I needed to pretty up some bags for the Little Bags of Lace Happiness etc on Etsy, and this is what I came up with -




I had fun making these. Perhaps I ought to make a few more. But for now, thats it. Almost bedtime for me.

Your gift bags for Etsy are darling. I love how you used stamps, music paper and images of pretty ladies.
