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.

the new floors are all finished and oiled and am really pleased with them, it was worth all the hassle:
lots of tidying up and moving of furniture yet, but still, on the final phase as it were!!
Did manage to get some knitting done tho' - have done some squares for WMK's blanket - not as many as i would like!
This week is rather a special week in our family - all three of my children have their birthdays!!
My son Dan has his birthday today and Tom's is on Wednesday! I think you might guess that christmas was banned in our house for a few years!!!
PROJECTS - once this week is over and things have calmed down a bit i can finally get going on all my WIP's - i seem to have so many - not least the stitching for my 'stitching angel' swap!
am off to get a cuppa now and make a birthday cake for Dan and pizza (his choice!).

three rooms of furniture into one - hardly anywhere to sit, no computer (i hear your sharp intake of breath! and my husband is now fully convinced that i am totally hooked on blogging!) - one of the funniest things was trying to operate sky tv with the sky box in one room and the tv in the other - there was much tooing and frooing and not a shortage of strong language!
i have so missed everyone's news so tomorrow will frantically be trying to catch up and will try and do a proper post!
til then --- oh its sooo nice to be back!!
