Today when I arrived home after braving the local supermarket for those last minute things I needed...tomorrow I'm at work all day so won't have time
I was greeted by my 3 lovely kids,
"Mum there's a parcel for you."
"Can I open it?" from no 2 and 3,
"No, I will, when I work out who its from."

Hmmmm....customs declaration says Sweden....I wonder?????

inside the box are 6 beautifully wrapped gifts and a letter....

it's from my Secret Stitchers Angel!
After reading her letter I now understand what took so long...
she has major probs with elbow, wrist and hands....
Upon opening each parcel starting with the smallest one,
I was totally speechless....

Inside the parcel was a beautifully crocheted table topper (in colours that I LOVE!), a pincushion,a hand knitted wool beret
(which MD has claimed, and is wearing, mind you it's only 35degreesC here today),
chocolate, a jelly roll of co ordinated fabrics (yum), a journal and a cookbook featuring Swedish cakes and cookies!


if you are reading this please email me so that I can thank you properly or leave a comment with your blog addy.
I feel very spoilt.

And in November I joined the HoneyPot Ornie Swap,
Rebecca was my swap partner,
here is what she sent me...

a crocheted stocking (very cute), a crazy patch heart (also very cute) and a lovely handmade card.


take a look at Rebecca's blog as I can't find the pic of the ornie I sent!

So once again I have received wonderful gifts from people across the other side of the world,
I love the blogging world, it's a wonderful place to make and keep new friends.
Thank you to the organisers of these swaps, without you guys they wouldn't happen....

cheers Julz
