A gift

Today I want to show you a beautiful gift sent to me from my amazing blog friend Tanya:

Thank you so much Tanya! I love it!
This is a true gift she has sent me. I didn't win a giveaway or anything, she just wanted to send me something. How adorable is she?! :)
It's a handmade necklace made with two photos:

It has some silk and a piece of Arizona turquoise attached to it.
I love handmade things, I love the uniqueness and how the maker is reflected in the piece and even more so when it's been made by someone I know.
Tanya does the most amazing work. She makes beautiful jewelry, sews, knits, pretty much does all kinds of beautiful, crafty things.
Please go visit her and say hi, you'll love her work as much I do!
Her blog is Bead and Needle and she has an Etsy shop too.
I've been feeling a bit under the weather these last few days and I haven't done a lot of crafting, but I have made another mini doily:

I saw this Daisy doily made by Olga over at Lacy Crochet and liked it straight away.
I used size 10 thread and a 1.75mm hook.
I wanted it to be a coaster. It turned out a little bigger than I had imagined but I'm still going to use it as a coaster.

It's the perfect companion to my kitty mug with my natural honey and lemon cold remedy :)
Have a wonderful day!


  1. The mini doily looks so pretty, I love this colour :)
    The gift is wonderful., congratulations :)
    Have a happy weekend!

  6. What a lovely gift to have received, what a kind person you friend is! Your doily is lovely and it is surely better for it to be bigger than your cup than smaller as then you can still see it peeking out round the edges! xx

  13. What a beautiful gift to receive ... it's so pretty and original. The doily looks great a little bigger because then you can still admire it when it's under the mug :) Hope you're feeling better by now. Wendy x
