Awesome parcel....

Recently I took part in a Tilda themed swap organised by Peg and Shez.... they have worked hard to think of some original ideas and challenges for us....

I am a bit lost for words here but look what was waiting for me at home yesterday....


and it came from Cheryll.... also known as Dory.... 

I had to take a picture of how pretty the packages all looked.... until I started ripping!!!


this cushion is just full of detail and so beautifully made with such pretty colours.... Cheryll even custom made a filler for it....


... and a hoop bag... with hoops in it... I am a hoop user so this is perfect... I am always losing mine (having put it in a safe place!)... also beautifully stitched in that pretty pretty colour...


... not only that but there was a Tilda book in there (I never owned a Tilda book ... and really we should all have a Tilda book ... I think the cover girls reminded Cheryll of her and me)... a pretty lace zip (perfect for a zippy purse?) and some Cottage Garden to add to my pretty holder....


there was also treats to eat.... bubbly mint chocolate and camomile tea...


The cushion deserves some detail showing... this is the stitchery... perfect work and just the right saying for me...


applique on the other side with lovely detail of ribbon and lace....


.. the back of the cushion is beautiful too!


... here is my fabulous bundle of presents all together .....


Cheryll, you have really spoilt me.... I can't tell you how much I love all of these.... such a thoughtful parcel and beautiful hand made goodies and extra's....

Cushion has a home .......


Thanks again to dear online friends.... Cheryll  for the gifts and Peg and Shez for organising this fun swap....

Righto, Gotto Go... I need some camomile tea to calm down... I'm just that excited!
