On Friday I had a card through the door from the postie saying that he had been unable to deliver a parcel. I'd obviously put the cat amongs the pigeons a bit on Tuesday because there was an additional note on it saying "I came four times, Sorry!"
I tried to ring them all Saturday morning to arrange re-delivery but once again no one answered the phone so I went over to the local sorting office this morning.
I couldn't wait until I got home to rip open the parcel and the following 2 photos were taken in the car, propped against the steering wheel!
this is the gorgeous tape on the outside of the parcel
and these lovely dotty packages might give you a clue as to the sender - yup, it was Sally-Ann of Dottydesigns!
The green and blue package was for the Little Lockets (more of that later as I had to wait for them to come home from school) and the pink and orange one was for me.................... my Mini-Quilt!!!
Isn't it fantastic? I had asked Sally-Ann if she could possibly make me one of her camper-van pictures because I loved the one I'd seen on her blog, and she had remembered that I had said I always wanted a blue polka dot car when I was younger. She's even stitched my name on the bumper!!! I love it!
And then she also included this gorgeous needle case
I just love that chicken so much!
And THEN there were these gorgeous Gocco'd cards (my favourite is the one with the birds and the bunting)
There was also a pack of maltesers with strict instructions that I wasn't allowed to share them (so naturally I didn't and ate them straight away!!!) and a gorgeous little badge.
But guess what was inside the package for the Little Lockets?
130 Crazy Bones!!!!!!
They were ecstatic and have played with them non-stop ever since!
Here they are all arranged by colour (with their original 25 in the trolley beside them)
And this is where they were going to display them at first until they realised that there just wasn't enough room for so many!
Thank you so much Sally-Ann you have made one big Locket and three Little Lockets very very happy!
Pop over to Sally-Ann's blog to see why she is happy today - it's a really good reason!
So here is the updated quilt wall
It just gets better and better!
And I will leave you today with a photo of what the end of SATs week looks like to a tired but happy 10 year old
rewarded for all her hard work with an ice-cream and a Beano comic!
P.S. Come back next time to hear about the lovely meal out we all had in the Yorkshire Dales with my brother and his family and my mummy and daddy! Scrummy food photos!
