Oh my giddy aunt! 2 parcels for moi???

After a pretty glum, rainy, busy day yesterday - in particular an African drum workshop that left me frustrated and deflated, this morning I was awoken by my gorgeous handsome cat Stitch, who is not allowed upstairs but had somehow found a way and come to give his mummy a kiss and a cuddle.

Next - Hubby arrived with my freshly brewed toasted nut fudge coffee, the sunshine, and - 2 PARCELS!!! so I sent him straight back down stairs to collect my camera.

Biggest decision of the day so far....which parcel to open first???

so...

From the other end of the country the lovely Marie sent me my Fabric Swap. A brilliant mini monster kit I can't wait to make, some juicy fabrics I love (especially the apple fabric) and in a few colours I haven't used before and can't wait to put into a project now! 2 bags of buttons and goodies, a rose brooch and a doughnut pin cushion with Marie's fantastic label on it.
Poor Marie has been having computer troubles recently - I hope she is back in blog land soon!

Next - all the way from the other end of the world! my Apron Swap partner Cathie at Melbourne epicure

 

It is so perfect for me! covers my 'ample' bosom and er...roomey hips!! 
She obviously knew I loved plants and had studied horticulture in the past! it is just perfect for me, and shall soon be seen on me while pottering around the kitchen and garden. Cathie also popped in some of her gorgeously photographed post cards, including one with a recipe on the back - so maybe a little baking will be in order to test the new apron!

The apron that will be flying off to Australia from me will be in the post today! 

So - MASSIVE THANKS to both of my FANTASTIC swap partners and to the fantastic people who organised the swaps! (I am planning my own swap soon!)

Better get started on my Boudoir Swap now

Lucky you, getting such goodies. Best wishes Val
