Handmade by Sweet Beate
My intuition has always been pretty good.
Today, I would say it was spot on.
I have long admired the creations by my blogging
friend Beate @ Sunday in Bed and decided it was time to act
when I glanced upon a gorgeous handmade blanket
that she knitted herself. The package arrived last night
and I am so excited I am finding it hard to contain myself :)
Sweet Beate hand decorated this lovely package for me.
Her creative energy knows no bounds...
" The creative is the place
where no one else has ever been.
You have to leave the
city of your comfort
and go into the wilderness of your intuition.
What you'll discover will be wonderful
What you'll discover is yourself"
To which she added a few Springtime
bookmarks from sunny Germany :)
and inside...I discovered this beautifully illustrated card
and a "springtime heart" notebook for
all my springtime thoughts...
and the piece de resistance....the object of my sincerest affections...
This beautiful handmade blanket of cotton and linen wool.
I feel like a girl in love.
I swept it out of the package, wrapped myself in it
and have had it by my side ever since.
See that little square tied to the card above?
It's gorgeous and I can't seem to let go.
Last night, I placed the blanket over my wintertime
doona and slept like a baby ;)
and... and... and....
for our dog Tika
She is in doggie biscuit heaven!
Some of you may remember Beate from an earlier post
when I introduced her to fellow bloggers, here.
There she is on the right modeling one of her creations
at her shop Garnwerkstatt @ Da Wanda.
You can have a look at her beautiful work in English here.
With that, I take pause with another of Beate's creations.
and send my sincerest thanks to
images ~me and Beate....

Wishing you all a lovely weekend...
