Shoes and Bags

How fabulous are these!!! They were a gift from my dear friend Bob.
I've always loved Patrisan's shoes and never thought I'd own a pair. Now I have two pairs and a fabulous handbag as well! Thank you so much, Bob. x

For my birthday Oly gave me a handbag kit by Janet Granger which I didn't start straight away as I wanted to clear some unfinished projects first so made it over the new year break. It's really pretty and will look lovely in my ladies shop.
For Christmas this year Oly gave me this lovely cupcake jug which will sit nicely in my Tea Rooms, Gift Shop or Bakery - I can't decide!
As I mentioned a while back, Oly and I made some felt animals which we were quite pleased with as our first attempts. Now I'm going to try and make Easter Bunnies with this brilliant set which I also got from Oly at Christmas. My favourite time of year is Easter, I love the pretty colours and the lambs, rabbits and chicks so Oly chose these for my Easter display. Thank you Oly, I love my gifts. x
I think you'll agree I've received some lovely gifts from special friends.
As this is my first post this year I'd like to wish you all a happy and healthy 2013!


  1. The gifts you received are simply wonderful, one by one, starting with Kaisa and these gorgeous ones you show here.
    Enjoy your treasures.
    Hugs, Drora

  2. Your gifts are great. The little bag and shoes are really nice.

  3. Wow, Bob has given you a very special gift. I admire Patrisan's shoes and bags. You are one very lucky girl!

  4. It is certainly some beautiful gift you have received. I also love the shoes. I use unfortunately a large shoe size, so I will never be able to walk in French shoes. But they are so beautiful in both 1-12 and 1-1. Enjoy your gifts.

  5. Beautiful gifts! I love the shoes and bags by Patrisan. Your embroidered bag is great.

  6. You received wonderful gifts from special friends.
    Bye Faby

  8. Wonderful gifts, Gill, everything is beautifully made!
    But I really fall in love with those shoes and bags!!
    Hugs, Ilona

  9. Happy New Year Gillian!
    Your gifts are all lovely. I love needle felting, it is great fun. I am rolling tiny balls of wool thread for you, and hope to get them off soon.
    Lots of Love,

  10. Unos regalos maravillosos!!!! Espero que disfrutes mucho de ellos.
