I love getting mail

Well, to say I love to receive mail would be an understatement....especially if it isn't bills!! As you would probably know, I have recently participated in the Stitcher's Angel Swap and I sent my parcel off to Yvonne the other week...So Friday I collected a box from the post office...

Carolin from Colorado Springs in the US sent me a wonderful package of such lovely things....three different bags...all so very handy...as most who know me, know how I love handmade bags

This is a close up of one of the bags (designed by Natalie of Cinderberry Stitches)



and this is a photo of everything...3 bags, a very clever "puzzle" ball, a notepad, tin of Gutterman threads and 2 cards of sheep buttons (so so cute!!!)

and of course I just HAD to include a close-up of the sheep buttons....I think they are just THE cutest I have EVER seen.....


So thanks again Carolin, and thank you Helen for organising such a fun swap...Now I need to get back to some of the other major projects I have on the go at the moment....ahh...so much fabric so little time!!!

Hoping you are all having a wonderful weekend....hugs and blessings, Lisa

By the way...can anyone tell me how I stop having one letter of a word end up on the next line? I still really have limited skills in the whole layout of this blog thing!!!!

I'm really glad that you like it, when I saw the sheep buttons, I remembered you and that you like sheep, so I had to get them. It's soo funny that Yvonne, you and I ended up to send our gits to each other... it was so much fun, and I would do it again, anytime!
