I Won! I Won a Wonderful Give Away!

The very talented 
and very sweet
recently had a beautiful Give Away
at her blog.
To my amazement,
I won!!
I couldn't believe I had really won!

A few minutes ago the postman left
a package in my letter box.
Great joy when I read the name of the sender
and I knew there was something wonderful
waiting for me to open :)
Inside was this exciting little parcel and a postcard
which can be cut out and made into
a tiny building!
Don't you love miniature parcels?
I love to hold them in my hand
and think of the sender
and delay opening them for a while
to enjoy the moment for a little longer ;)
Curiosity and excitement means I can't
wait for too many moments before opening......

Inside was this very beautiful Teacosy
made by Rosanna.
I apologise for not being able to show
how beautiful this cosy is in a photo,
it is a work of art in my hand.
Every stitch is perfect, it is so neatly made
and the tiny Carnival Horses
make me smile.
How lucky am I???
Doing a Happy Dance and clapping my hands :)
I loved this cosy when Rosanna showed it on her blog!
I was taken completely by surprise when I won it!!
Never for a moment did I think of winning
when I left a comment,
I just wanted to say how much I admired
Rosanna's tea cosies.

Thank you Rosanna,
I will treasure this beautiful gift forever.

Roseanna's work is truly beautiful and as one tea cosy expert in crochet you would have a great appreciation for the expertise of another needle artist's work, so Congratulations! I look forward to seeing how you showcase this beautiful work of art, Susan and make sure that when you do that you take a lot of pictures, Remember we bloggers LOVE pictures!

  18. Yes, I'm loving this cosy Caroline, the colours are so shabby chic and spring like. I'm working up courage to make the building, it's so tiny I'm afraid of messing it up!
