Lovely mail.

Mr Postman has delivered two lovely packages this week. This morning a surprise parcel arrived from Clare. I helped her with some pattern downloads and this is how she thanked me :-)
Block roll, scissor case and scissor fob.
Don't you love the cute cat on the scissor's fob? 
It was a very thoughtful and much appreciated gift. Thank you Clare. She has also just started up a blog - to see more of her beautiful work - you can visit her here.
My second excitement with Mr Postman this week was when this beautiful book from Quiltmania arrived. I had been eyeing it up for some time but Josie twisted my arm and made me get it :-)
It is full of gorgeous projects - big and small - made from gorgeous fabric and with lots of lovely appliqué on them. I KNOW I will be making things out of this book.










Well that is my excitement for the day, have a good weekend everyone and thank you for visiting,

Beautiful gifts, I love the 'Meow' x-stitch on the back of the fob.
Only one more sleep before you get another bag of goodies from our Round Robin group.

I plead innocence!! You pressed the 'buy' button girl. How can I be held responsible for that. You know you wanted it.... tell the truth now.
Love the presents Clare sent you. The kitty is so cute.
