Have you been to visit our Gum Tree Designers blog today!?
I won't tell you why, but you should....over HERE. We're partying hard this month!!
Today the postie arrived with two parcels...and I just *love* parcels! The bigger the parcel, the less chance it's a bill. ;-)
The first one arrived from my friend Michelle, from The Raspberry Rabbits. It was so finely dressed I actually hesitated opening it...
I adore toile paper, so I've saved it for my own enjoyment...
Michelle has been using Valdani threads for her BOM this year (go HERE - it's gorgeous!), and she sent me the sweetest bundle of them! They are so tiny...I am treating them as fragile because they are so exquisitely small....about the size of an Australian 10c piece.
Also in the parcel I found some divine white linen...no guesses what threads I'll be using on it! And chocolate...lovely, dark, raspberry filled chocolate. Mmmmmm...
How spoiled was I!? Thanks Michelle. :-)
(Michelle has a giveaway on her blog at the moment!!)
I sent Michelle a wee parcel too, but I won't show you what was in it until it arrives.
The other package was very exciting too! I had bought an item off ebay in the UK a couple of weeks ago, and when it arrived I was gobsmacked by the postal pack!!
A Cath Kidston post pack!!
How gorgeous is that!!?
And what was inside?
A Cath Kidston felted tea cosy! Isn't it gorgeous!?
I haven't dressed the tea pot with it yet, because Blossom hasn't arrived home from work and I want to share that moment with her.
I just love Cath Kidston...rooly trooly.
My week has been very busy with uploading lots of wonderful things in my Ebay Australia Store, but in the quiet moments when I can take a break I have been stitching more blocks from Helen Stubbings 'Life Is Beautiful' quilt...
Five blocks finished, only 27 to go!
I've also drawn up most of the blocks for my next Shabby Roses quilt...but I'll keep that sneak peek for another time.
I can hear Blossom coming through the gate so I need to brew that pot of tea!
Have a lovely evening,
PS: Forgot to tell you about another free bird pattern download! Tracy sent me the link for a Partridge HERE. Thanks Tracy! This was so funny because I was going to make a Partridge in a Pear Tree for the Sew-In!
