First of all I've been sewing just about all day. I've done a few chores (de-frosted the freezer, washing, skinning tommies). But mainly I've sewn, but more of that later.
At around 11:00, after my coffee, I nipped down to the post box to see of the postie had left me anything. And she had - in fact there were two parcels (and some bills of course!). Do you want to see what they were?
In alphabetical order:
I have received the most beautiful Mug Rug and matching goodies from Leah at Sew to Bed. Just look at this
It came together with these two goodies
|Leah didn't send the tomatoes - they get everywhere at the moment|
These are also beautifully made, and, quite by chance, they exactly match a box I have on my dressing table
|How on earth did you know Leah?|
And here's a picture of everything together, including some rather nice iced biscuits (yep, i've eaten them already!) and a prized possesion, a Twix bar.
Thank you again Leah - this is the first swap I've taken part in and this is my first pressie. I couldn't have asked for anything nicer!
And the second parcel. Well that was a prize I won from Karen at McGinty & Me.
5 gorgeous fabrics from Lila Tueller's Santorini range , plus a book on organising a craft space (how useful is that going to be?) all wrapped up with some alphabet tape. I think these fabrics will go well with some of these
and some of these
to make a quilt for our bed. Thanks again Karen.
Well that's about me done now - I have made great progress today on my Happy days quilt, but that can wait for another day. I think this was enough excitement for one day! Thanks again to Leah and karen for making my day.
