Fabulous mail again!!!

Sometimes mail takes so long to get here that I start to wonder if I’m going to get the fabric I ordered or the item from my swap partner.  Other times it seems to travel at normal mail speeds.  Please understand that mail is not delivered to the house here.  It goes to a post office, delivered there three times a week on Monday, Wednesday and Friday.  Letters go in my box and I can pick them up anytime, but I have to get parcels when the post office is open – basically 9 to noon and 2 to 4 M, W, F and 10 to 11:45 T and T.  Sometimes I cannot get there to pick up parcels for a few days.  I had a parcel card on Monday and another today.  And this week it seems the mail is arriving in a timely manner.  I got some lovely items when I went down to pick up my mail and parcels today.

First up, my March hexie flowers.  It is one flower Wednesday after all, but I’m going to have to call it two flower since Hanne sent me two…  They are so pretty Hanne; I love the fabrics you chose. 


I also received Sue Mobilia's base for the scrappy felt pincushion round robin organized by Fiona.  Sue sent along some scraps I can use for embellishing these pincushions – great colours that I don’t have in my small stash of wools… I can’t wait to get started working on this project….


And last, but overwhelmingly not least, I received my pincushion in the Flickr pincushion swap.  It is from Laura (Flicker site lel6419)  and is just so fabulous.  It includes the pincushion (yes branch, leaves and bird), three homemade pins, a little pin holder and was wrapped in a lovely piece of red and white polka dot fabric with a white ribbon.  Laura this is too cute!!



Thank you to my swap partners, for making my day brighter.
