A Gift To Me Myself and I

Hello my dear friends,

since I have been working very hard on my outdoor project I had decided to gift myself with something little. After looking around I found the perfect treat for 'me', where else would I find it but on Dawn's blog ~ The Feathered Nest ~ in form of one of her beautiful needle books and yesterday it arrived!

A kind and sweet message!

Isn't it just perfect ~ so much detail and beauty!
I am so happy to now own one of Dawn's creations!

I don't gift myself usually with wonderful creations but once in a while I do tend to find something small and very neat that I just have to have. I am sure  most of you know Dawn's creations but if not, then you should definitely pop over to her blog and check out all of her neat makings!!

And last but not least ...

I am still working hard in my backyard. Our pool is going to be opened today and I am so excited ... now I can work outside and then jump in the pool to cool off!

These past few days I have been able to take some time to create a little since the weather has been very hot here in South- Western Ontario. I will share it with you as soon as I have to time to get the post together which should be in a day or two.

I am so glad that you took the time to stop by here at Todolwen and visit me again. Please come back soon and don't stay away too long now!!

I hope you are well and life is treating you kind.

Have a peaceful and creative day,

Karen B.


  1. Greetings from Eastern Ontario! I too have two pieces of Dawn's work. I treasure them both. Isn't the blog world wonderful, bringing together folks who are geographically so far apart?!

  2. How thrilling to receive a parcel in the mail. And such a parcel. An elegant and sweet needle-case for you and your sewing room. Virginia

  3. Dear Karen, I'm so very glad you received your needle book safely!!! You never know about these small packages and all the miles they travel :) I'm so happy that you're pleased too! I love knowing that something from my home is now in yours ~ thank you so much dear friend...I look forward to seeing more of your gorgeous outdoor projects, the changes are already wonderful! I hope your week is going so good, hugs and love, Dawn
