what a lovely surprise

...arrived with the postman yesterday. A cylindrical parcel wrapped in brown paper and secured with at least half a roll an awful lot of tape. I carefully unpeeled it to discover inside the most beautiful pink box

covered in butterflies and a bow on the lid. As I admired such a lovely gift I heard a tiny voice from inside. I pulled off the lid and a furry creature emerged stretching and flapping her large ears. She was the most cute elephant
made of the softest fur.
Biddle has been charged with looking after her.
Where did she come from you might ask? She had travelled all the way from Devon and Soggibottom
I am taking part in Michele's pass it forward (PIF). Thank you so much for such a beautiful elephant. She told Biddle and Grace last night that her name is Amelia Phant.
Now I need three lovely people who will help me pass this on. If you would like to take part leave a message in the comments for me. I have not a clue what I will make for you.

I have finally got to grips with my doll and she is almost finished. Although she looks rather bald at present because I have not decided on hair.

I am pleased with how she has turned out.

yesterday was a beautiful day warm, sunny and found this little visitor. There were several munching on nasturtiums.

Today it is pouring hard so I can imagine they have all been washed away

I have finally finished a fingerless glove. Amazing what you can do when the cat is asleep upstairs. I must not grumble at her too much she did catch a mouse this week.

This has taken ages to do had to resort to the old format in the end

Please leave a comment especially if you want to help me out with the PIF

Happy that your Amelia Phant arrived.
I really enjoyed taking part in pay it forward.

As for all the tape, she was slightly fiesty as she went into the box :-)

What a wonderful PIF. She is adorable!

I won't take part in your PIF as I'm already in 2. I would have done otherwise:)

Beautiful PIF. Because I'm so busy, I will not take part in your PIF.

It is raining and very humid here for the past two days.

Amelia is just too adorable! What a lovely PIF :o) I love her name too.

Your doll is really coming along. I can't wait to see her finished.

Sorry I can't participate in your PIF. This is a busy time of year for me :o(

What a lovely PIF. I am loving your doll and look forward to see her completed. I am sorry I can't participate in your PIF. I have my fingers in too many pies at the moment.
