A Busy Day and Some Happy Mail

I have had a lovely day stitching with Lisa from Fig'n'Berry Creations doing my favorite class - a Christmas one, of course.

But first I had two lovely packages in my mail box yesterday, and knew they were coming but still exciting to receive them  and the anticipation of opening. I was one of the lucky recipients of a wonderful giveaway on Peg's blog - Happy in Quilting, and this was what she sent me -
Beautifully wrapped in a gorgeous fat quarter
How gorgeous is this sewing pouch/pocket - it will be used often and treasured always, thankyou Peg.  Plus she had added a beautiful ribbon, DMC threads, scissors and quick unpick. Just love it.

My other lovely mail was from Marina - she had some patterns that she had bought and was looking for a new home for, and she so very kindly sent me two of them -

Now I'm not promising I'll get them done this year Marina, but I will certainly enjoy making them, thankyou.

I was a bit engrossed in stitching, so not as many photos as I would normally take, but these are the two projects we received today -
The cutest table runner - the photo does not show all the lovely little details - I promise to show mine when I get a bit further advanced.
And this lovely wallhanging which I am stitching in Cottage Garden thread "Hugs and Kisses".

I went garage sale hopping before my class, and did manage to find a treasure or two, so will show you those next time. Have a great weekend. Cheryl

Lucky you. Lisa is such a talented and lovely designer. Sounds like it was a good class. Now you just need some extra hours in the day to make all those projects.
