...is like the No.33 bus. You wait days for a parcel and then 4 come along at the same time.
First up was this wonderful package from Ruth over at twohiphippos. She mentioned the other day that she had won a hamper (yes a hamper) of porridge. Being a foody and a big mouth, I happened to comment that we were big porridge fans in our house and she sent me this little bundle of loveliness.
Not only did Ruth send me gingerbread (squeel) porridge but 3 of her beautiful handmade linen and felt egg cozies, which have the most gorgeous vintage mother of pearl buttons on. So that`s one each (the middle one has little buttons on so I know who`ll like that one) and we won`t have to fight over them! Thank you so so much Ruth!
Then there was this little FQ bundle of gorgeousness - Lark in the Glamour colorway, which I ordered from Julie at The Intrepid Thread.
...and all the way from Australia, my first block in the 4x5 Modern Quilt Bee!
It was made by fellow Hive 1 member Wendy in my colours purple, orange and grey - thanks Wendy! I just love that little dog.
My mum came to my rescue again and also sent me a package of much needed thread (thank you mum!)and a new winter coat that I had ordered. This time next week, I`m off to Paris for a couple of days - I have a special package to hand deliver to my friend Deborah. December in Paris is pretty cold so you`ll have to wait until I`m back and I`ll show you a picture of me shivering in said new coat in front of some touristy site.
Just for a bit of fun, the first person to correctly guess one of my four brothers` names (you can have 2 guesses each) will receive a small something from Paris. I`ll let you know who wins before I leave next Friday!
Thank you for all your lovely comments yesterday - normal cheery service has resumed!
Lastly, Happy Thanksgiving to all my American friends around the world - I hope you have a wonderful day with your loved ones.
