A little about this and that

Friday there was a note in the mailbox that a package had arrived at the postoffice. Could it be the SSCS package..............or the polkadot and ric-rac swap??????

But no....there was another package I almost had forgot. Some time I won a giveaway over at Bonnie's blog Calamity Jane's cottage and it was this package that had arrived.



Look how lucky I am. I thought I just had won the book and two patterns (which was what she had shown at her blog giveaway) but she had also added several wonderful fabrics and a little applique kit. Thank you Bonnie, I love it all. The pattern in the book is so naiv and fun and I love them.




Another envelope arrived saturday from a lady in netherland (no blogger). I had helped her finding a pattern and look what she sendt me. A wonderful heart with the most tiny cross stitches I ever have seen. And it is cats on it. WOW....you should seen these tiny cross stitches, can't belive how she manage to sew these.




A new project (as I really needed a new one). While giving a workshop at the local quiltshop yesterday this lovely christmas stitchery arrived for sale. And of course I got so tempted so I had to buy it. This reminds me of a wallhanging my grandmother had in her kitchen. Cute nisser (santas) dancing from door to door. This (among other projects) will be my christmas work.




And if you have visited Hannes blog you have noticed she have made a heart that is going in the post far away to a quiltfriend that need a special hug right now. And this quiltfriend is also getting this heart from me. Can't tell you who because I will not destroy the surprise of this mailbox joy.


And I have been working on my SSCS gift this weekend. The xtra surprises is already ready. Can't show you anything because then Santa Donna will be angry at me LOL .This is so fun. Making a surprise for a quilt friend. Hope she will like it.


Saying for today:

Keep your Christmas-heart
open all the year round

You really are a lucky girl! The fabrics you got in the package from Bonnie are lovely. And so is the heart with cats in it too. I`m a "cat person" myself and would love to get something like this heart.
