Here's that big box I was talking about.
Here's all of the pretty items wrapped inside.
And everything unwrapped... a pretty dish towel, some gorgeous, silk cloth, LHN's Night/Day chart, a pretty decorative box, some peanuts (She must have read somewhere that I don't like chocolate!), some needles, a measuring tape, a notepad, and...
And "Kindness" from one of LHN's Dear Diary charts. The stitched piece is not sewn in, so Sue says I can finish it into something else if I wish. The little fabric frame is adorable. I'll have to try to sew one up one of these days.
Thank you so much, Sue! I love everything. I can't wait to use the silk fabrics :)

Sue - I just wanted to let you know that I have received your package, but I am waiting until my birthday to open it! I can't wait to see what's inside the huge box you've sent me! I will try my best to post pictures on Wednesday.
Thank you in advance!!

Kathryn, I absolutely loved everything you chose for me. You couldn't have done a better job. The flatfold you stitched for me is really pretty - and since I have never received (or stitched) one before I will cherish this! I never expected to receive so much (not that I'm complaining ;D) and since I'm still flabbergasted I'm just going to let the photos speak for themselves. Thank you so much, you're such a sweetheart! :-D

Unwrapping all the gifts, I was overwhelmed by all of the Autumn-themed goodies: Candy (!), Silkweaver hand-dyed fabrics, 3 charts, stickers, backing fabrics, special cocoas, buttons, threads from Carrie's Creations, a pumpkin mug, a yummy-scented candle, almond soap, a hand-made beaded fob and this adorable Fall pillow!!!
Can you say, spoiled???? Wow! Thanks, Cindy for a wonderful birthday gift!

Although it isn't quite my birthday yet, I received a package in the mail from Finland today...
I wondered what it could be, and figured that it had to be my SBBC exchange! Should I be patient and wait and wonder? My curiosity got the best of me, and I just had to open it! Inside, I found the most fabulous witchy Halloween pinkeep that Sari stitched for me!! It was absolutely perfect, and I could not have been more thrilled!!!
Here is a pic of all of the other goodies that Sari sent along...
I absolutely love everything...thank you so much, Sari!!
