Suprise in the Post !!
Thank you so much, Catherine from 'The Sewing Attic' blog.
I was the lucky winner of the redraw of her Mayday giveaway and the parcel arrived at my doorstep quite quickly, all the way from New Zealand!
I opened the airmail plastic and saw a lovingly wrapped parcel.... the suspense!!!
I opened it and what a lovely parcel it was ! Not only had Catherine sent the wonderful wonderful batik FQ's she promised, I also got one of her lovely pinchusions, a great flower brooch, and even some more notions thrown in! I love she included a postcard of where she lives. A very thoughtful and much appreciated touch!
I had been using a pincushion my mother had made for me, handpainted by herself and I love it! However.... it is a tad on the small side so I had been throwing pins in a beaker and an old box leftover from chocolates (those rocher ferrero golden balls, the boxes are rigid plastic and so useful!!). I did really need something bigger and... voila! here it is!!
Catherine says she is looking forward to seeing what I do with the Fat Quarters... You will have to be a bit patient Catherine.. Old Red Barn Sew along is taking all the time at the moment.. and I'm still behind.. I will get to it!
Thank you so much for this wonderful generous giveaway. Those batiks are lovely!
