More mail...

The postie has been busy around here lately...
Last week I got a parcel from Jeanette...it was a prize I'd won in her recent Giveaway. I unwrapped this pair of hand sewn pillow cases that Jeanette had sewn. Jeanette's blog is a joy to read...she does exquisite sewing and her home decor ideas are just so elegant and beautiful.

Certainly a lovely prize to win and many thanks to Jeanette.

Another parcel that  arrived last week was also a prize. I guess sometimes I can be extremely luck! lol This was a Giveaway from Jodie Carleton over at Ric Rac. Jodie makes the most amazing items/toys out of felt.
My 'Mrs Sausage Dog' kit along with the Vignette magazine that featured the pattern for Mrs SD were in the postpak. Love it!



My Initial Heart Valentine Swap gift arrived yesterday. My partner was Sharon from lilabellelane.blogspot.com, and what a lovely lot of goodies were in the parcel. Look how beautifully Sharon wrapped the parcels....



Here is my little angel ('Matryoshka Angel from Rosalie Quinlan's book 'Gift' )...


The sweetest little angel who will 'live' in my sewing room...


Sharon also included some chocolates and a cute owl thread keeper with 2 skeins of embroidery thread.
Thank you so much Sharon for my lovely gifts.

Now my partner in this swap was Debbie and today she wrote about what I'd sent her...

And last of all, today...
 I also got a parcel from Kaite, a fellow blogger. Kaite sent me some balls of yarn and some knitted squares to create some more warm items for K4BN and some other little surprises...thank you Kaite :-)
