Kindness from across the miles.

Hi everyone!

It's my thank you day today! From time to time I usually thank you for your continued support whether it be here on my blog or over on Flickr. I've now uploaded 866 photos and
I've had 8,920 views! That's a lot of people all over the world who are taking the time and trouble to visit my Flickr photos. I'm having a great time and it's really nice to meet and chat to you all. I have now 316 contacts! Can you believe that? I try to take the time each day to browse through the contact pages to see what's new and hopefully I haven't missed anything. I try to comment as much as I can and I really enjoy the communication between us.

Amongst my contacts I have built up a nice friendship with Elizabeth Cat in Latvia. I admire her work greatly and I would recommend anyone to visit her photostream. She has the most beautiful Crocheting Set! It's funny how we all have our own individual likes and dislikes. I tend to go for pale colours, others brighter colours like Elizabeth.

I happen to mention the other day how beautiful the gold looked on her cushions and how I was having trouble getting some in the UK. I'm probably not looking in the right place and everywhere I have tried has no stock. Well she did the sweetest thing and went out and bought me some from her yarn shop. I was so touched by her kindness and I was overjoyed yesterday when in the post I received 4 beautiful balls of Gold thread.

Beautiful Gold Thread from a friend.

So yesterday I enjoyed 'Golden Tuesday'. I used the Crocheting thread to make another birdie which I have called 'Golden Birdie' and three 'Golden Butterflies', these are to be put on my Christmas tree. I had such a wicked time making them.

'Golden Tuesday!' Fun Day! (Lights not good today!).

Thank you very much Elizabeth Cat!

I just love doing the Butterflies. If you visit she has some lovely ones on her blog that she made along with some gorgeous crocheted rocks. She actually got the instructions from I do hope you'll visit both blogs and have a go!

Hope you'll pop over on Friday I have some photos of my Christmas Tree. I put the tree up this morning but you'll have to be patient, I've tried to load them but my charger is playing up on my iphone.

Before I go for all you Crocheting fanatics. Would you like to pop over to visit Elizabeth Monday's post 30th November, she has the most beautiful tea cozy. It's crocheted in her favourite colours and it's a real delight to see. She also has some wonderful Christmas goodies over there.

Bye for now, look forward to chatting to you all as usual and my new followers! Thanks again for your friendship very much appreciated.
