Parcels - the best kind of mail

>> Tuesday, 16 March 2010

Two things arrived today to put a huge smile on my face. First package I picked up off the lobby floor was my printable fabric. I've been waiting a week for this and now, finally, I can crack on and finish my latest Woollie pony project.

My second package was even more exciting. It was my gift from the springtime Folksy swap that Zoe had arranged - my package was from Alison of Love Hector.

Love Hector - swap
Wrapped in pretty pink tissue, I received a "pillowcase apron" with stunning pink ribbon ties to keep it in place around my waist. The various pockets perfect for holding whatever I fancy so as not to mis-place anything. Paul and Katie immediately thought it would make a good sewing apron and I think I have to agree with them. Carefully re-wrapping the gift to look at later (as I had a house full of guests today), it was only when I returned that I found, hidden in one of the pockets, a delightful little brooch - very spring-like with it's green fields and little woolly sheep. All very much a big hit for me.
Love Hector - swap
Huge thank you to Alison for making my day (and future days) very happy, and to Zoe for arranging the swap.
