A Parcel for me!!!

I got the most wonderful surprise last Friday when the postie called at my house!! My parcel arrived from Sandi from Legacy of Stitches in US with the giveaway pressies I won on her blog in December. To say I was gobsmacked when I opened the box would be a HUGE understatement!!!The 'prize' was listed as this gorgeous Christmas stocking that Sandi made, filled with Christmas fat quarters. Well, with the name she had put on it I simply HAD to enter ... and when she received my comment Sandi even emailed me saying how funny it would be if I actually won it LOL!!! Here's the fat quarters that were packed inside .... can you believe she fitted them all in??? Well, she did :o)!!! But it didn't stop there .... Sandi also sent these, I guess because it's almost Valentines day - my 16 year old DD2 thought these were pretty spesh ;o)...... .... aren't they gorgeous??!! But there's more ...... I even got this pattern for a Penny Rug - designed by none other than Sandi herself :o) ... and .....Some wool felt so that I can make the bunny one straight away ..... I can't wait to try it, I've never worked with wool felt before!!! Last of all were these cute jingle bells to decorate my Christmas tree next December. Honestly, I felt truly spoilt ....... Sandi you're so generous and I thank you from the bottom of my heart :o).I'll be back again soon hopefully with piccies of my finished cot-quilt if all goes to plan .......

To all the Aussies, have a truly fabulous Australia Day tomorrow ... we'll be having a barbie with friends ... even if it rains (which is forecast he he) we'll just hide under the pergola :o)!!!

Until then .....


P.S ....... go and check out this fabulous giveaway at http://bittybitsandpieces.blogspot.com/ ... simply gorgeous prizes to be won!!!!!
Hugs,
Joy :o)

Afternoon, Joy! Oh, I am so glad that you enJOYed the package I sent. I had fun doing it although it was interesting trying to stuff the fat quarters in that stocking!! You were certainly meant to win the stocking. I was "gobsmacked" when my husband showed me the slip with your name and comment!!! My daughter thought is was too cool!!
