Thanks Mr. Postie

As promised here are the 2 parcels that came yesterday. First off this cute little box arrived, and I knew it was from Claire as her name was on the side. Claire had kindly picked me to send her Viola brooch to.....I was so surprised when she emailed me to say I had won :)

Beautifully packaged inside was........

All these goodies!!! I wasn't expecting such a glorious array of easter goodies to boot!!

Included with the very pretty Viola brooch was a cute piece of fabric with apples and duckies, some gorgeous ribbon (which I am officially in love with!!) And some mini chocolate eggs. "Claire, I have hidden them from Chris, I'm afraid they're all MINE!! :) Big hugs for such a fab parcel, thank you xx "

My second parcel contained some fabric that I had ordered from here, now this fabric is for something really special. I'm going to make some purses with it that will include some buttons and some ribbon. I will be selling these to raise money for Cancer Research. I'm taking part in Race for Life again this year and wanted to do something more.

I know that I will have to try extra hard to raise money this year with things being so tight for everyone financially so I thought why not give a little to raise a bit more :) I will be posting them here before they go into my shop.
Dont forget to come back on Wednesday 15th for my bloggy birthday :)


  1. Hurrah! Glad you liked your parcel. The chick ribbon was from John Lewis - I bought loads of the stuff!

  2. Ooh I'm loving the fabric. Can't wait to see what you come up with.

  3. Getting crafty goodness through the post is one of the nicest things about crafty blogging. That fabric is decidedly yummy! x

  4. I agree with Kitty - blog post is fabulous!! Your new fabrics are very pretty and for such a good cause too. Good luck in the Race for Life (I am absolutely rubbish at running unfortunately!) Can't wait to see what you have planned for your bloggy birthday!
    Happy Easter!
