One of those days.....

... when you get surprised....

Dear sweet Shez sent me one of her prized kitchen towels and decorations....

I just love them and am thrilled to have my very own ... thank you so much Shez

... a very pretty doily came with the parcel.... so sweet and I think it will make a perfect cover for a needlecase?  It's very sweet....

those tea towels that hang over the oven rail are so useful and I just love Shez's pretty decorations with the double row of shiny beads..

Shez and I are both making this little Santa and trees penny rug at the moment..... this is mine all pinned up and you can see Shez's HERE....


I had just recovered from opening my surprise when Mr Postie hooted at the gate with a box....

.... my 6 things Christmas swap parcel hosted by Maree .....  

Thank you Cheryl ... so exciting

Righto, Gotto Go..... dishtowel to hang up, tea to make, parcel to open..... tears to dry.... (am I the only one who gets weepy at surprises?????)
