Hello again
I didn't think I would have time to do another post before the weekend as I have slippers to finish for Easter, but I could not let my fab parcel which I received today from Vintage Girl as part of the Tilda swap organised by Faerie nuff go unrecognised.

I do hope she gets mine before Easter. It was posted earlier in the week.
Well yet again I am amazed at the wonderful generosity of you lovely bloggers.  Not only the actual contents of the parcels I have received but the time and patience making and putting them together.

The box arrives..and tucked inside beautifully wrapped is this cute bunny

I am sorry that I haven't caught her fab bonnet very well, but it is lovely

A bag of buttons, and Lisa has replicated the embroidery so well!

A trio of scented strawberries

A lovely patchwork heart again beautifully hand embroidered

A very pretty mug

The cutest candle in a cup, plus the saucer...

How pretty is that!

And inside was a lovely note from Lisa saying she had wanted to make more, but time and looking after a toddler defeated her.  Well I would have been mortified if she had as I think I am so lucky already.

Everything is beautiful Lisa and must have taken quite some time. I can't wait now to get my sewing room finished as I intend to have a dresser or display cupboard to show off all these wonderful things.  I daren't display too many of them about the house generally as I have a feeling some may go missing.  My daughter is so jealous .

Well I'd better get some shut eye so I can finish my order for tomorrow, luckily only finishing off to do.

Happy Easter everyone

Back soon
