A nice surprise and a bit of knitting

Last Friday I received a pleasant surprise in the post. A present for me!!! It was from my darling friend Deb who lives in the Adelaide Hills. It is so nice to get a surprise that lets you know that someone is thinking of you!  There was a liquid eyeliner (Deb knows that I am on, what seems endless, a quest to find a liquid eyeliner that can compete with the brand (now discontinued - if I get my hands on you Max Factor grrrrr) I have used since I was 19.....there was a navy blue nail polish like the one I loved from the pedicure we got together in March and a packet of CHai tea....all little items that say "I am thinking of you".

I am a very lucky friend indeed. 






And here is the knitting I promised.  The pattern is by Leonie.  The pattern is a dream! So simple and produces a great look.  And yay! I used up some of my stash - only 4 big bags to go!

oh how sweet to get some special gifts. I so love your Leonie vest, they are just the warmest and cosiest ever. I wore mine again on the weekend, and just got soooo many comments. I love the yarn you have used from your stash too, lovely shades blending together perfectly. The beauty of this vest it goes with jeans, it goes with skirt and boots, it just goes! Thanks for sharing, and happy wearing.
