A Weekend Surprise

This post is all about trying to fulfill goal no. 9 from my Project 2011 – Give more Gifts. I decided to put together  a surprise package for a friend who has just moved away. She’s living in a new city, trying to make friends and fit in to a new job. Not an easy thing. She learned to knit last year and is now really enjoying so I thought I might try to expand her crafting knowledge and send her an introduction to embroidery out of the blue. It’s lovely to give gifts especially when you know that someone could do with a lift. So I really hope this worked.

In the parcel I put – A transfer of ‘True Love: Peanut Butter and Jelly‘ (on calico I already had); Three transfers of ‘Crazy for Cupcakes‘; Some Embroidery Floss (from my own stash); A Stitch How-To Sheet (put together myself from information on the net); Hemline Tapestry Needles (£1); 6 Inch Embroidery Hoop (£3); and a screen printed postcard from me

All in all, with padded envelope and postage the package cost just under £6. What do you think – good value? I’m chuffed with it. Happy Weekend everyone! I’ll see you on Monday!
