More Mail

 The mailman has been very nice to me lately.

I received another package,
 this time a beautiful zippy pouch from Vicky (patchwork queen) 
for the Mouthy Stitches swap.


Look at this, isn't it wonderful? 
I love the wonky star and grey linen.

Wait till you see the back.

On the backside, Vicky did some beautiful hand stitching on the center flower
(which one of my favorite parts)

and the zipper.
Its 9" X 10", the perfect size for a small project. 
Don't you just love the lining? 

AND, look at all these goodies she included. 
An abundance of beautiful fabrics, 
trims and two adorable little buttons, a little blue bird and a red kitty.
I don't have any of these fabrics and I can say I love every single print.

Thank you Vicky,
I am one happy girl. : )

In case you were wondering

I've Got Mail

Yes, that's right I came home from work to find a package for me.
Was it my Mouthy Stitches Swap or my Bee a {Modern} Swapper pincushion swap?
I couldn't wait to find out! 
 Receiving a package is exciting enough,
but not as exciting as what I found inside! 

Look at this awesome pincushion made especially for me 
by the lovely Heather from my Bee a {Modern} Swapper group.

This is just the kind of pincushion 
I need, large, beautiful and with it's own thread catcher! 
The fabric choices are wonderful, the workmanship exquisite, 
and its my favorite and grey!

Yes, that's my inittial on the front.....hehehe.  I love it!

Look at these cute little pins. 
The photo doesn't show it but they are pearly and so pretty.

Heather didn't stop there.

She included everything red,
 a zipper, vintage ribbon, an assortment of 
lovely buttons, fabrics (I especially love the one in the front) 
and a beautiful hand stamp card and envelope. 
She even included red candies, I took a photo, but it didn't turn out.

Oh heather, you out did yourself!
Thank You : )
