Listen with you eyes

I received a parcel today and have had a lovely morning wondering at the contents. Trashys rainbow swap had already given me a heap of fun making things and now I have received my parcel from Wonderwoman (not!). All the parcels were so beautifully wrapped with lots of proper ribbon to go in my stash! Firstly I opened a paper bag full of supplies, buttons, pretty ribbon and some cute felt flowers which I have been sorely tempted to treat myself to in the past. I feel some cute hair clips coming on! Next I opened a parcel shaped like a bike saddle and found some bright and beautiful bunting, it was the word 'welcome' appliqued along it and will brighten up my place considerably. Next I opened these soft and fluffy hand warmers, I haven't broken out my gloves yet so these are going straight in my coat pocket ready for a cosy school run. I couldn't believe there was more but the next parcel contained a dear little appliqued and quilted hanging, I have just put this up in the dining room and it really does look so sweet.
Finally I found that Maria had made me a tea cosy. I currently use a knitted number for daily use and this rather special cosy shall be given a hook to hang upon until a special occasion arises and she can be bought into use for best.
All in all I can't quite believe the loveliness of my presents. Maria s so talented and these gorgeous rainbow delights are already brightening my home. A big thanks to Trashy for organising this brilliant swap. My special and heartfelt thanks to Maria. I was so delighted to know she was going to make my rainbow parcel and I am even more delighted now that it has arrived. Maria you are so very generous and kind and very very talented.
Don't forget the 200th post giveaway. I am still trying to get the review onto the blog and feel a step closer thanks to the expert advice of Swirly.
