Yet more about Easter...

I forgot to include a photo collage in the last post; a collage of Sunday Stitchers showing the Tablerunners they received in the swap...( It's actually Maree's photo which I 'borrowed' from Instagram.) The runners are all beautiful and the variety is amazing. 

Last Sunday we also had a raffle. This magnificent parcel of items was donated by Helen, who is shown here beside the prize.  The money raised from the sale of tickets would go to our fundraising for the World's Biggest Morning Tea. 

And one of my tickets was drawn out as the winner! I was gobsmacked! Lol. 
There was a lovely handmade doll called Little Miss and made by Helen...
 How sweet is she?
There was a gift pack of a Cadbury Egg and Roses Chocolates, but I gave that away before I came home. Now when I was unwrapping this prize I was being urged to open the case at the bottom of the big cellophane parcel. I had thought it was an empty case, and thought what a wonderful prize it was. 

But no! When I opened it, I was amazed...it was packed with so many goodies! What a surprise!
Look at all these Easter goodies!

Remember my post about the vintage egg cups...I now have a new one and I love him, as well as all the other Easter gifties! 
A closer look at these...

But wait there are even more goodies...



There was even a needle threaded with a light!
A mug bag and the cutest mug rug!

And these lovely items to pamper myself with...the egg shape is actually lip balm and it smells and tastes divine :-)

So now my hutch has lots of new additions! 
A big thank you to Helen for donating this wonderful and generous prize. This lovely raffle raised $87 from the sale of tickets on Sunday's meet up.
