Yummy Mail

Yesterday a parcel i've been waiting on arrived. I opened it to find the goodies all wrapped up lovely.
 Shell had posted recently about her new pattern & as i loved it i ordered it straight away. Also included was a yummy chocolate & teabag. I've yet to try the tea. I mentioned to Shell that i'd forgotten to order the raspberry thread which you can see in the bag. I hoped she would add it to my order & bill me. Well the lovely Shell added it alright but as a giftie. Aren't i lucky?  Thank you so much Shell.
Such a gorgeous stitched house & piecing around it. I also ordered the Valdani threads that go with it.

These threads were designed for Shell & are called Folk Art for Michelle May. They are gorgeous.
I forgot to take a photo of something i bought & it arrived last week.
I ordered this thread holder from Sarah I'm glad i did as i've a use for it today. I've an hours train ride as i'm off to have my hair done by a trainee hairdresser & this gives me an opportunity to sew hexagons together. :)

Happy Stitching,

I LOVE that pattern so much - good for you on getting it, and how lovely of Shell to add the thread to your package - she's such a doll!

Doesn't it make you feel good when you get good service. Choccies, tea and a free thread is certainly above and beyond. I love the box of threads. They look quite yummy and like some of the others I have no idea how your thread holder works :)
