If you turn your head sideways (*&%# Blogger keeps rotating my photo!) you can see the wonderful gifts I received from Michele. I LOVE LOVE LOVE the pin pillow she made, as well as the gorgeous scissors, the Lion and Lamb kit, multi-colored fabric, and assorted pins which were all wrapped up in the festive fabric in the background and tied up with the pretty ribbons which will certainly be put to good use. :) Thank you again, Michele!
...but I'm exercising self control, and won't open it until my birthday tomorrow morning before I take advantage of Disneyland's free admission. :) Because we'll be trying to beat traffic to get to Anaheim in the morning and we usually close the park, I'll post pics on the weekend if I can find the right USB cord at home, or Monday if that cord is MIA.
I've just returned from the post office and have mailed off my partner's birthday package. I hope she enjoys everything I included. It should arrive the day before her birthday. If it does, will she have the willpower to wait until her special day?! I don't think I could do it. Happy Birthday!
Just a quick shout out about how wonderful Edgar is and what a great host he is for this exchange!
I just got a beautifull package from Laura. I just love everything she send me. First the beautifull stitching pocket she made for me. She had to use 3 sewing problems as she had problems with the finishing. But it is beautifull done. Just watch the beautifull over one stitching and the buttons are from her grandmothers button jar. Isn't it a beauty. Than all the beautifull goodies. I somehow misplaced the beads when making the pic, but she also send me 4 packages of beads that were on my wishlist. Also a skien from thread gathere that was on my wishlist and some nice GAST threads. Than a sheperd's bush needleroll that was on my wishlist. Than the LHN quilting chartpack as I am a quilting queen (her words not mine), A shop exclusive kit from shperd's bush "A gentle garden" with framing mats and it is beautifull, will be a joy to stitch this this spring/summer. Than a cut fob from sheperd's bush with scissors attached to them and than she made me also a beautifull strawberry emery/fob. I love the garden theme she used for my birthdaypackage and I am just in shock and so so happy. Thank you Laura for this beautifull package which really made my day today.
I have just finished and packed the birthday gift, which goes to Switzerland. So, up to the post office and you my dear in the country of chocolate, pocket-knives and tickers watch for the postman, I hope s/he will knock on your door very soon. Happy Birthday!
