Perfect Timing!

We've all had them I'm sure ... and yesterday I was having...
"one of THOSE days"!!!
I spent most of the day in the car running around trying to orgainse everything that needed to be done regarding the sale of our (other) car. Of course, "Murphy's Law" prevailed, nothing was going as it should. Not to mention all the other little bits and pieces that had to be done ...... i.e delivery of DD2 and friends (it's school holidays at the moment), last minute groceries, post office (queue too long - bumped onto tomorrow's list), pattern deliveries (ok, that part was fun), driving DD2's friends home after whatever it was they were doing etc. etc. ......... Im sure you get the picture.
BUT, when I got home look what I found.....Ok, it wasn't unwrapped like this when I got in ... but I was just so excited that I rippped it out of the Air Mail envelope before I remembered I should be taking piccies for my blog!!!
Don't forget, I was having one of THOSE days ... ;o).
Look though ... all wrapped up in such pretty ribbon with a cute Easter card. It's from my friend Maria in England!!! Maria and I "met" when we were matched up in the Stitcher's Angel swap last year. Can you believe all these gorgeous goodies that she sent to me!!?!? There are gorgeous ribbons and the sweetest little notebook (that's in my handbag already!!). There's 3 different yummy fabrics, a beautiful yellow/pink/white stripey one and a most fabulous 'Bistro' one - being an absolute coffee fiend that one couldn't fail to please :o).Isn't it gorgeous!!!??!! And there's also 1/2 a metre of this beautiful yellow floral print that I was delighted to find was an absolutely perfect match with the ME jelly roll I bought last week. Now how could Maria have known that he he he???I'm sending a HUGE big thank you and lots of quilty hugs to Maria not only for her thoughtfulness in sending such lovely gifties ... but also for her perfect timing!!!
Thanks so much Maria :o)!!!

The yellow fabric does go nicely with the Mary Engelbreit jellyroll.
