Parcel for South Africa

Since my last post on Saturday, my personal life has gone through a trauma... so I'm sorry for not replying to recent comments - I will soon.  I want to say hi to the new followers - it's lovely to have you following - and thanks to everyone who commented on the last post.  I will try to be back to my normal cheery self soon.  (Or at least seeming cheery would be an improvement...)

In the meantime, here is a post I've had prepared for a while, but I was waiting for the package to be delivered before publishing:


Rohan's Gran recently celebrated her birthday over in South Africa where she lives (Rohan is from there) so we posted a little box with a handmade card and a little handmade present.

I made a card...

...and a little crocheted padded hanging heart...

with a button and beads.  I used a pattern from Easy Makes Me Happy, and added the button, beads and hanging loop.

To be packaged up and sent to South Africa.

I've had to wait before posting this, to make sure the parcel was received first (and it takes forever for post to get to SA!)

    Lots of hugs,
