Evening all.....
ooh sound like Dixon of Dock Green there....Ok there will be some of you who will remember him! (surely!!!!)

Two lovely things to blog about this evening , and apologies for being a bit late with the first...

Mr or at least at the moment Mrs Postie brought me two super parcels last week.....

The first was a surprise win from Alix at used-to-bees. 
I have admired her travel journals and other beautiful pieces on Folksy here
and I couldn't believe my luck when this landed through my letterbox

Beautifully wrapped.....

A brilliant covered notebook...and in a Union Jack perfect is that for me!! Appliqued with copies of old travel posters....

and a great selection of other posters and signs printed onto fabric and backed with bondaweb for me to have a go myself....I am thrilled.  
Thank you so much Alix, the only thing is I forgot to keep the envelope with your address...if you don't mind would you email it to me!  I can't wait to use the appliques, I have a cushion in mind already, so will show you the result in due course.

My second parcel was from Lynn at Sea Angels
I bought some stunning rose fabric from her and it arrived like this.....

How pretty is that.......and the cute little cup cake is made of decorated wood, I am tempted to add a pin and use it as a brooch!

Can't wait to use this, destined for some new cushions I think....... although its pretty enough to be a summer skirt....a la cabbages and roses..........ummmm.........  Thank you Lynn an absolute bargain!

And Finally......drum roll please.......................................
