It's not even my birthday!






I picked up my parcel and it was chock-a-block-ram-full-bursting at the seams with treasure. The huge box was decorated with a cotton reel stamp, the parcels were wrapped in tissue pattern pieces and beautiful coloured tape. The little card in the package was gorgeous. Three parcels, one for each of us to open and Anna dived straight in to find the sparkly beads sitting atop the lot. Will opened the bookmarks themselves, I had spotted them on the Flicker group that has been set up for the swap but I never dared hope they might be heading my way. I cannot begin to tell you how gorgeous these are, hand embroidered, patchworked, reverse appliqued loveliness. Anna opened my books, Winnie the Pooh baking (I already have a figure that closely resembles the bear himself and getting stuck in a hole is about the only way you'd get me to diet too!!!) and a vintage stitching book, too precious! The final package which I opened myself were hairclips and a needlecase, (by this point I was almost weeping!) two felt lovelies and two very clever button slides and a linen item of sophistication previously unseen at this address. I cannot believe that all these are mine, I'm not lusting after them on Etsy or anything they are actually in my house.....for me......THANK YOU MARY (I couldn't get any more pics on this post so will pop the rest of the photos onto the next post)

I'm so glad you liked the lot, Jenny! I have so much fun creating for someone in mind. Enjoy!

It's... because you're worth it!

(Well I figured someone was going to say it sooner or later so it may as well be me).

To avoid getting stuck in a hole... don't visit Rabbit's house.

Wow! What a fab load of goodies. Which swap was this for?

btw you can add more than 5 pics. After doing your first 5 you can go back and do another 5, and another...
