Who's a Lucky Girl Then?

That would be ME.  An amazing parcel arrived today from Michelle, my secret partner in our Friends Having Fun swap.  And let me tell you I have been smiling all afternoon since I opened it. The theme was spots - a favourite of many of us, and boy was I spoilt.  Michelle, I loved all my gorgeous gifts - thankyou so very, very much.

Michelle knows me too well and knows that my favourite sewing is xmas. How gorgeous is this sweet wallhanging - can you see the little snowy peeking out of that skate? 
A close-up in case you couldn't see him. Many of you would know that I am a fan of Michelle's designs (Rag-Tag Stitchin') and stitch many of them.  So very excited to have a Michelle original.
And more lovely spotty goodies - a gorgeous fat quarter, very cute notepad (love my pot of tea - did you see the spots on the teapot) and m&m's (they're round aren't they, and very yummy).
And how gorgeous is this personalised sewing pouch.
Perfect to just pick up  go. Holds all the necessities and threads.  I love it Michelle - it will get lots of use and will be packed for a few days away on the weekend.  Michelle had added some of my favourite red thread, lovely red spotty ribbon and some very cute buttons. On the right is the most beautiful handmade card - a work of art.
Yes there was more - told you I was a very lucky girl. These two gorgeous decorations. Now I love gingies as much as I love snowmen, so this little guy will take pride of place on my tree of handmade decorations this year. And how cute is this beautiful red spotty dress hanger. Already have it hanging on my door.  That absolutely gorgeous snowman fabric in the background is the back of the lovely wallhanging. 

What an amazing parcel. Loved each and every gorgeous part of it. Thankyou dear friend. Cheryl
