A Little Friday Parcel

It's not often the I can indulge in purchasing some handmade goodness.  My budget just doesn't ever stretch that far.  Not that I think handmade goodness is overpriced, it's just my paycheck can only stretch so far.  

However, recently I decided to part with two of my beloved sewing machines.  This one was particularly hard to part with, but I knew I would never use it and the loveliest lady purchased it after driving 6 hours to pick it up!  Anyway, I'm getting off subject.  These two machines put a few extra dollars in my PayPal account.  I knew I had to spend these pennies wisely, because it would be a LONG time before I had anymore luxury pennies.  So I spent the last two months trawling the Internet looking for  lovely things to spend my pennies on when I came across a lovely something

The lovely something wasn't quite ready yet, so I had to wait, whilst making sure those pennies didn't burn a hole in my pocket (I suffer from a severe case of long arms and short pockets.  I counted the days, stalked a certain lovely blog until I saw this post and I quickly put my penny spending skills into action.
She arrived today.  

 This bestest bit about the parcel?
The lovely hand signed thank you card.
It really touched me and I knew my pennies had been very well spent.

Now I can't wait to get stitching!
Let's hope my stitching skills will do this sweet rabbit justice.

Happy Weekend!

Toodles...L x ♥

P.S.  My sweet Rabbit was very very reasonably priced.  So I do indeed still have some luxury pennies left in my PayPal account. I am saving those for a rainy day.


  1. Ooh she is nice. I especially like her liberty print dress. I look forward to seeing your results. Its good to treat yourself now and then. Happy weekend.

  2. What a wonderful purchase - those bunnies are so lovely aren't they? I can't wait to see how she looks when you have finished her.

  3. That is such a shame, but it makes complete sense...I'm such a hoarder.

    I love the fabrics - they are beautiful.

  4. How nice that you spent your sewing machine money on something for you, I understand how you feel about selling the machines, as you know I sold a couple of mine too, I still feel I did the right thing as they are being used and treasured as they are meant to be and as I'm reading back I know that you have made your sweet little Maggie Rabbit now beautifully!
