... terrific lovely mail!
Yep, I arrived home at lunchtime to find a couple of parcels on the mat; and of all the things I was expecting to receive today, these were not they!
I opened the one with the sender of 'Donnachie' first, as I knew that was lovely Sheila and pretty confident it was my Pay It Forward gift! It was...
How lucky am I?? The owls (the zip!), all perfect! There was also a little book of quilting quotes and a delicious 'Scottish Tablet' which is nothing like it sounds. For those not lucky enough to know, it is kind of a dense fudge-like block of sugar! I didn't eat it all just yet, but I could have, very easily!
Thank you again Sheila, you are a star!
So in the spirit of the gift, I have spent the evening making more and tweaking some of my PIF items - even if I get them all made and divided out between my lovely ladies shortly, I may or may not send them immediately, I haven't decided yet ;)
My other parcel was also wonderful to see, I cut it open so carefully!
Considering I only ordered my fabric from Jo last Tuesday, and it was posted Wednesday, I never expected my parcel from Japan so super quickly!
The sewing room fabric is for the swap, and the other is for me, I have plans...OK I don't, but it was too nice not to indulge, sorry.
Just look at the selvedge... (it's probably upside down!)...
So there you go, lucky lucky me... and as for the mail I was expecting, you know I won't keep that to myself now eh!
