Blogging Friends Are So Generous!

 One of our swaps for the Friends Having Fun Swaps this year is wool. I mentioned that I will have to start collecting some as I didn't have any in my stash. The lovely Fiona (Bubz Rugz) offered to send me some.
A big fat satchel arrived! I don't think Fiona could have stuffed any more in! Now it's got my mind working thinking about what I will make my partner. Thank you so much, Fiona. It was so lovely of you to start my stash!
 Yvonne from Yvonne W Designs recently had a giveaway of a button set she used for her Triptrych that is in the January edition of Homespun. I was the lucky winner. How pretty is the paper the buttons were wrapped in!
Here they are. Yvonne makes gorgeous buttons and brooches, as well as designs lovely patchwork and stitcheries. You can see them here.

Thank you so much Yvonne. 
The buttons are so much nicer in person.

As they say, what goes around, comes around so you must have done something nice to get it back. Love the buttons, so cute.

lovely stash of wools!
Fiona is very generous, she started my stash of wools off with her home felted wools a few years ago. I don't think I have reached the end of that stash yet!
