My Birthday goodies!

Look what came in the mail for me. I saw the return address from Down Sunshine Lane and thought, I didn't order anything, well I just had to open it. Inside was a cute SB pattern Flag. Plus some needles, hurray for that. I had lost my last needle, couldn't find it. Here's hoping that John's feet don't find it! And a new floss color, the note just said SBBC from Heather MacKenzie Enjoy! Which I most certainly will. I am a big patriotic nut! You become one when you have family in the military! Perfect choice Heather! Thanks so much!

Just wanted to let someone know that two packages are their way to a birthday girl. She will get some special from Canada and somethings from a Lns in the states so be on the look out

June 21, just wanted to post my package came back to me for some reason known only to the postal system so it has been re-mailed

Birthday gift from Edgar

Sorry to let you know this late, but I just got home from a week's holiday and my birthday package was here waiting for me... I had such a great time opening all the gifts:
- chocolate (smells good)
- Lizzie Kate Christmas is... chart with buttons
- bath salt (white tea and ginger; ginger should be good for my RA)
- a lovely magnet (California Impressions - Mount Vista)
- California Poppy seeds
- Gingher Stork scissors (so beautiful!) and

the loveliest pinkeep!!! The pattern is from the Crown & Thistle Quaker Seasons Purse and it is so pretty with the matching fabric, cord and ribbon!
This was my first year here, and I have enjoyed it so much! Thank you, Edgar, for all these gifts!!

Birthday package from Carla

See the wonderful pillow and all the super goodies I received from Carla all the way from Peru!!

First, the pillow... absolutely awesome finishing, the result is soooo very sweet and cheerful, with assorted beads all around! It is a pattern I didn't have but so wanted to, and here I get it already finished into such a lovely decorative item! I love it, Carla!
I'll refer you to Carla's blog to see more pictures.

And then, the goodies... Fantastic linen from Enchanted Fabrics, a company I didn't know, two other pieces of very lovely fabrics, lots and lots of variegated DMC floss, and a chart from my wishlist. Just wonderful!!

Thank you so much again, Carla!! Love it all!!
A big smile to you, Edgar, too, for organising this exchange.

Birthday exchange received

I received my birthday exchange from Edgar yesterday. Edgar stitched a design from Ewe & Eye & Friends called Garden Gate Hare and finished it to the top of a box.
Edgar also included a pattern from my wish list and some lavender soap, flower seeds and magnet and notebook. Thank you Edgar.

I would just like to add that Edgar was good enough to send me this exchange because my original partner who claimed the package was mailed did not come through. My birthday was last March and I was hoping that my exchange would have made it to me, but apparently it was lost in the mail and for whatever reason my partner felt her responsibility was done as soon as she mailed it. So thanks again Edgar for sending me a great birthday package.

Here it is...

the gorgeous parcel of goodies that Hazel sent me for my birthday.
The stitched piece is from "Thank you Sarah Tobias" BB Designs and she made some lovely thread holders with the backing fabric she used. Stitched on 40ct linen using Threadworx thread. Oh and the goodies are wonderful, the chocolates are heavenly, I'm about to guzzle down one of those hot choccies (perfect as its raining here today) and some gorgeous Dragon Floss made in Wales, UK.
My favourite surprise though has to be the two charts Hazel sent me from my wishlist, The Gathering Place - Rabbit Run & The Sampler Girl - Rain in the Country.

Thank you soo much Hazel, you really made my day.
