Surprise Gifts and Winner!

Hello friends

We received a lovely surprise yesterday....
gifts from Kathy - she is the lovely lady who owns the Alpaca farm and has been 
a blog follower and friend of mine for quite a few years now.
She had beautifully wrapped everything with such pretty tags
and she knows me well...Layered Poinsettia!

First up Bella opened her gift...

 Bless her - once it was opened she waited until I said she could eat them!
 And then the cats had a turn, this is Lilly - one of the kittens.
 It wasn't long until her big brother came along too.
Saving treats for the grown up cats too - yes we are overrun with pets!

And then my turn..I probably should have waited until Christmas but I was too excited.
From Alpaca wool Kathy has made the most beautiful wrap/shawl.
I love it.
Thank you so much Kathy, I know how busy you are working on the farm and
I feel so special that you put aside time and made this for me.
Be sure to check out Kathy's website here.

Now to the raffle for the Christmas stocking.
As promised Bella was set to work, investigating the bowl of tickets.
 A swift decision - hence the blurred image!
 It was then a little battle to get her to relinquish the ticket!
 And here it is, just slightly chewed!  Also being investigated by Lilly!
Congratulations to number 139.
Check your tickets please and drop me an email

I've heard from some of you that to leave a comment my blog is asking for word verification,
'prove you're not a robot' stuff - no idea why this appearing, I have it switched off!
Going to get the geeks (the boys) to investigate further, so sorry about that.

I hope you are all keeping warm, truly feels like winter with the thick frosts we are having.

Take care friends.

What a great surprise from Kathy and that beautiful shawl, Alpaca wool is so soft, a lot more than Lambs wool so I can imagine how it feels. Lovely to see Bella and the kittens too.

Love & Hugs
