Gifts Galore





What a wonderful suprise today from the Australia Post man on my birthday. 2 Parcels......... I did remember to grab the camera before ripping them open.


The first parcel was some fabric that I treated myself to from Bonnie at Calamity Jane's Cottage
All of these fabrics are so yummy and will feature in a new quilt for my bedroom. Bonnie also sent me a lovely card and a fantastic magazine - Thanks so much Bonnie - I will be back to your shop very soon.



The other parcel was my Spring Swap gift from the lovely Veronica. Veronica has reduced me to tears this morning on my birthday !!! She has put so much thought and love into these gifts that I feel very humbled. The first gift is this gorgeous Grandma's Brag Bag complete with pictures of Maddie and Tommy. She has obviously been spying on me :) I adore it Veronica.


This is a picture of everything that she sent me including delightful little pink mallow chicks, Buttons, Clover Heart Yo Yo Maker, Gorgeous fabric, Pincushion and a pocket tissue cover. Everything is just so lovely.


Veronica also sent a gift for both Maddie and Tommy - Sam is going to love them.

Here is Tommy's Hat. He will be wearing it at Maddies party on Saturday.

Words cannot express how grateful I am for my gifts Veronica. You have just totally spoilt me.

Also thank you very much to everyone that has sent messages of encouragement on my new little venture. I will keep you all posted and will take progress pics after Jeremy the builder finishes his work here.
