As I was saying, i just love it when a white van rolls up. I get supremely excited when the man driving the white van gets out and comes to my door (and a bit sad when he doesn't), even if I am still in my pyjamas. Which I was during almost all of these deliveries.
So the week started on Sunday evening when my neighbour handed me the mail she had been collecting for us while we were away only to find the first of many parcels from my friends at The Beehive! Just look at what I have so far!
Unfortunately blogger has decided to shave all my photos at the sides (and if anyone knows how to make the margins smaller please let me know!) Anyway, the makings of a darn fine quilt if I do say so myself! And such an awesome treat to come home to all those parcels.
Monday morning rolled around and just when I was feeling a bit down about the holiday being over there was a knock at the door.
Look what arrived
And signed too!
And can I just say what a superb second offering this is from Amanda. My only beef would be that it is so good I have had to stop reading it at night before going to bed. I just get too excited about all the projects I want to try and lay awake picturing them. (I was just saying today to a friend that I lose more sleep these days thinking about craft projects I want to complete than I did when I worked full time and had the worry of managing twenty five people!).
And last but certainly not least the week was rounded off with this little beauty
Lovely Leonie had a giveaway recently and I won!
But not only did she send me the most gorgeous wool she made me a pin cushion to boot! It is made from the most divine Ink and Spindle print and is flawlessly made ... like flawless.
Sienna declared it, "beautiful", before taking off with it down the hallway. I found her transferring my pins into this gorgeous new pin cushion. Hmmm perhaps it's time to replace my el cheapo flouro Spotlight pins now that I have such a pretty thing to stick them in :)
