Sweet gifts in pink

Remember these most adorable little birds from a post early in January. They are cups and are available in the DE stores in exchange for (many)coffee-points.
And guess what came in the mail saterday.....yes, many coffee-points! The oh so sweet Nicolette from "devliegendekoe" blog did sent me a suprise package. There where two thick envelopes in full with coffee-points. Wow am I happy with those...yeah!
She also wrote a cute cow card and to spoil me completely she made me a beautiful painting! I totaly adore this one! It's one of her designs she made for the 'pink ribbon quilt'.

See the little bird on the painting? It gave me the inspiration I desperatly needed.
So, thank you so much Nicolette for your most generous gifts and for giving me new inspiration. You'll be seeing some results soon!

I'm also busy making a valentine gift for my swap partner Mary. Hopefully I can bring it to the post office soon.
And some knitting news....I'm almost finished with writing the star pattern in English....finaly!!

Have a great week!
