The best way to start the day!

I knew today was going to be a good day (and boy did I need one!) when as he was leaving to do the school run, my husband bent down and picked up a parcel for me that was lying on the front doorstep. The packaging gave it away slightly - 'Mug Swap' written in red ink on the outside and in a very self contained manner, I found my camera before unwrapping it!

And this is what it contained...

a lovely knitting pattern..

some delicious biscuits (and these are one of my favourites)...

..a lovely hand-painted mug..

a colourful brooch.. very own bottle of love..

..a stamp..

..a lovely bag (which I had to fold to photograph!) whose length seems very perfect for my knitting needles..

..buttons (I love buttons!)

..some coffee (perfect for my morning cappuccino!)

and the most wonderful fabric (heaps of it!) I have been thinking all day about what I can make with this. I just can't decide!

Wow! I feel very spoilt and want to say a big 'Thank You!' to DasieDays who sent me this wonderfully generous package. Now I need to put the last touches to the parcel for my partner. Oh, did I mention the fabric.....!

  2. So glad it all arrived safely and that you liked all the goodies, I found it really hard to know what to pack! Let us know what you make with the fabric, it is yummy isn't it? And I thought with so many babies you'd be bound to make good use of it!


  3. Wow, I think you're the first and what a lovely package. I'm quite jealous of the fabric!

  4. Gosh, what a wonderful parcel! I posted mine off yesterday - not sure how long it'll take to get where it's going though.

    Exciting, isn't it? x
