The biggest package of course... which had this beautiful button decoration on the front.
Inside was this gorgeous wallet... front view!
And back view!
And even more lovely goodies inside - a notepad, pencil, notecards and a bookmark.
The next parcel had this fabulous passport cover and a set of Sarah's handmade cards. The passport cover will be very useful later this week (more about that another time!)
A third parcel had this pretty felt heart plus a net bag with some wooden heart cutouts
Even more... this funky ice cube tray!
which so far I've managed to resist (though not for long I fear!)
THANK YOU so much Sarah. Every little thing is very much appreciated and all will be used right down to the pink foil on the choclates and the beautiful red hand made wrapping paper. Your parcel is on its way! Of course no photos of what I've made for Sarah because that would spoil the surprise... and besides I forgot to take any before I wrapped up the parcel!
Also in the post today came this card from my friend Jude. She had written on the envelope "I saw this... and I didn't just think of you, I collapsed with hysterical laughter." I have to confess I laughed hysterically too (fortunately I was alone in the house at the time!) I fear this is meant to be me knitting socks!
And my last lovely thing in the post today (email post!) were three beautiful drawings from Lesley's daughter Minx. Lesley and Lucy have set a challenge to make something with children's drawings embroidered on them. I happened to say I would like to join in but didn't have any little children who made drawings anymore and Lesley offered to send me some from Minx. Thank you Lesley and Minx - this one is my favourite and I've already got plans for it!
