Blogging kindness

A few weeks ago a left a comment on Melanie's blog about her thread holder. I said I would get Lucas to have a look at her holders and get him to make me one. Melanie kindly parceled one up and sent it to me along with some lovely material, the generosity amongst bloggers is amazing. Thank you Melanie.

I was also luck enough to win a give away from Rose and these arrived today. I am considering myself very lucky.

I'm so excited to see the thread holder stocked up...How wonderful. Enjoy your patterns. Rose is working on a new BOM set that I'm purchasing when it hits the US outlets.

Very nice gifts and prizes you recieved. I also read your post about ANZAC Day and did a little research on what this day was about. It is very similar to our Memorial Day. The history about the Australian & New Zealand forces fighting in WWI was very touching and your pictures that you put on your blog are beautiful.
