Time to Snuggle In

Hi there! Hope you had a good weekend! It was pretty cold around these parts. I spent most of my weekend stitching a Folk-Art Fusion piece in this chair.

A while back my dear friend, Jade from Zen of Bun made me a scarf from Alpaca wool. I love that scarf and wear it all the time as I'm always freezing! I really don't warm up until it's about 90 degrees!


I asked Jade if she could make me a throw for my chair from the same wool. Indeed she could and this is the gorgeous pattern she created! I loooooooooove it!! It's sooooooooooo soft and soooooooo warm!  I sat all snuggled up in my chair and stitched and stitched.

Inside the package with the throw, was a gift from my nephew, Mickey.

Mickey gave me two handmade charms! One of his fuzzy little butt and one of cousins Harrington and Hannah! Aren't they fun! I love them!

These charms were handmade by our talented jewelry artist and bunny friend, Donna Swan of Lavender Rabbit Studio.



While visiting Donna's blog the other week, I saw this incredible necklace! I have this thing for clocks and watches and love to collect them. I knew I just had to get that necklace! So I hopped over to her Etsy Shop to get it!

Donna sent my necklace wrapped up so pretty and even sent gifties for the bunnies to play with! Of course, those have been chewed to bits now.

Then she surprised me with this gorgeous necklace too! Isn't it cute!

Thank you soooooooooo very much Jade, Mickey and Donna for all these wonderful treasures! Now it's time to snuggle in and get some stitching done.

Have a fun day!
xx, Michelle

The best part of making throws this time of year is that they keep you warm while you're making them. So glad you like it!

Mr. Mick is also very happy that you love his gift. Donna did awesome work as always. :D

Oh your aplaca throw is gorgeous, love alpaca, it is so soft and cuddlely. The charms are gorgeous, what a great gift.
You should have been here yesterday, it was high +30s celcius (+90s farenheit) you would have been quite warm and toasty!!
