Wonderful Parcels

Just a very quick post to show off the two wonderful parcels that arrived this week.

When I saw that Leanne of The Stitching Room was part of the Pay it Forward plan I quickly signed up as I love her work so much - look what arrived:
A gorgeous messenger bird with a crocheted fabric nest and a wonderful little thread bin for all the scraps of thread that normally accumulate on the floor! (LSH will be pleased!) I am absolutely thrilled with these - Leanne's work is so neat and perfect and it is lovely to have a little bit of Australia in my house. But then it got even better........
sorry about the poor quality photo - but look at this! Leanne got Leanne Beasley to sign a block for my 365 Challenge quilt when she was at a course with her! I'm so pleased!

My other parcel was my part of the Yarn in a Teacup swap - a wonderful package from Danielle:
A lovely cup and saucer, some tea, two balls of beautiful wool and a Yankee candle - oh and a very funny card! I'm not really a knitter - although I have knitted in the past - but I really want to learn to crochet flowers and things and I loved the idea of sending a teacup and wool across the world! My parcel came from America and the one I have sent has gone to Canada.

Thank you again Leanne and Danielle - and for those of you who are signed up to my PIF - I hope you are not expecting anything as lovely as I got!!! I'm really feeling under pressure now!

Hope everyone is having a lovely holiday. Lucy

Pay it Forward? Sounds cool.

You got some very lovely gifts and the wool would make a really nice crocheted scarf or pair of mitts. Are you on Ravelry yet? They have some great crochet patterns for nearly everything under the sun in all yarns.

Great gifts .... how come you didn't show all of the funny card? Was it rude??

And how come you haven't entered my competition yet? Are you on holiday or do you have a problem with monkeys being pink??

(If you're on holiday I hope you're having a fab time)

The bird is stunning, and I love yankee candles !

Hi Lucy. I am so excited that you got the block from Leanne. When she came to class in South Australia we had such a lovely time. I thought it was so wonderful of her to think of you and ask me to sign a block for you. I drew 'butterfly bush' on the block because they grow in my garden and I wanted to send you a bunch!Very best wishes from Australia.
