I had a lovely surprise in the mail today! A little parcel from Stephanie! She sent the most cute gift:
It is such a pretty idea, I love it!
Thank you Stephanie!
It is so kind of you sending the participants this great gift!
I can hardly wait to see the pictures of the goodies when they arrive at their recipients all over the world! It has been a great swap and I enjoyed sewing the items for my partner, it is on its way to her and I hope she will like them. And I’ve read there is a parcel on its way to me! Everything is so exciting!
I hope you are not getting tired of seeing pincushions again!
Simone got a package for a pincushion, but she was not very found of making it, so she asked me if I would like to have it. Could I say no to a pincushion?!
This is the package with the material included.
But before I show you the finished one, I have to tell you how I got it from the mail. It came on a day I was quite busy, running from one appointment to another and coming home late. I was already in bed and feeling warm and comfortable, when I just thought of the mail box. I asked DH if he had gotten the mail. “No”, he said. And I go , “me neither!”…”And if there is something in the mail box?” , “You can take a look tomorrow”. My answer “Tomorrow? Why should I wait so long? I’m going to take a look right now!” . He was still very patient, “Honey, you are in your pj’s…It is cold outside.” “I’ll dress a pullover , the neighbors won’t see me , they are sleeping and it is dark anyway!”. I went downstairs, opened the door and at the moment I got outside and was opening the mail box, my neighbor was coming home. ..I think he did not really recognized me…Well, who cares….I only had eyes for a little parcel I found among letters and newspapers!!! I ran inside and I was giggling! “See, it was there!!” “What was there?” “The parcel from Simone! I knew it was coming and I couldn’t wait till tomorrow!” I started opening it and saying ohhh and ahhhh!…”Suzie, it is late, tomorrow by daylight you can see it better, it is time to sleep”. “Soon, there is one more thing I want to see”. After some minutes, he goes, “Tomorrow you will have the time, ok?”. “Sure, I just have to pack it carefully aside”. I laid it near the bed. Then I slept, with a happy smile!
Unfortunately I couldn’t make it the next day, but it is now finished:
Thank you so much Simone! It is another lovely one to my collection! That makes me so happy! :-)))
I wish each of you a lovely week full of inspiration and surprises!
