Not 1 but 2 parcels!!!!

A little bird (well, two actually) had told me to watch out for the postie and i was sooo excited i could hardly contain myself (you probably gather from this that i don't get parcels very often!


Well, when i got home lunchtime i shot into the garage to see if postie had left anything and there they were, two of them!!


The biggest parcel was, of course, trashy's box swap - i couldn't wait to tell her, so rang straightaway - mind you it was so well wrapped up, took me a while to figure a way in, bearing in mind i would have to send it on again!


Well, here are the goodies i picked:-



there was some lovely yarn, Colinette, a cute little box with a cupcake on it with some buttons inside, and some fabric! how fantastic.

i will try and turn it round as quick as possible as i know there are others waiting - as you probably know my sewing room is just full of boxes and odds and ends following our floor scenario, and, you've guessed, my goodies are underneath somewhere! So tomorrow morning i will be diving under the table to try and get them all out!!

My next parcel was from Australia - my excitement level by this point was sky high!! and inside were these beautiful goodies from my stitching angel:-



Isn't it the most gorgeous needlecase ever - i was so thrilled - its beautifully made and in my favorite colours.




inside there were needles and a tapemeasure - and i also received some lovely fabric and a hugs and kisses iron on transfer!!


Aren't i lucky - i just want to say a HUGE thank you to my stitching angel - its an absolutely lovely present and i can't wait to find out who you are!

Lots of love and thanks to trashy too for organising the box swap.
