Valentine Swap and other goodies too

On Friday I was the lucky recipient of not one but TWO parcels in the post. How lucky was I???

Firstly I recently took place in Lucy Locket's Valentine Swap. My swap partner Sarah sent me this lovely parcel.
Firstly, unlike me, Sarah took the time to wrap everything - how nice was that???

(excuse the photos, they were taken on my mobile and are pretty bad)


These are the goodies all unwrapped. It was so much fun getting presents when it wasn't even my birthday.


Firstly, Sarah made these beautiful cards (they put my card to shame). They are just beautiful and I can't wait to share them with someone soon - providing that I'm willing to part with them!


Sarah also made me these lovely hearts which will be hung on my inspiration board which is just above my sewing table. Don't you love the fabric??!!


I also got some beautiful fabric which I will be using very soon.


And also some chocolate which I have shared with the kids - aren't I nice. I think I only shared it as they were around when I opened the parcel. Had they not been near, I could have hidden my stash.......


One happy boy........


As I mentioned above, I also won a prize over at Comfy and Cosy - and once again I was spoilt.


A box filled with lovely goodies including buttons, ribbons and ric rac - the cutest ric rac I've seen! The buttons are gorgeous - I can't wait to use them.


My photo doesn't do justice to this linen teatowel. It is simply beautiful and the embroidery is gorgeous. It will never be used to dry dishes - how could anyone have used something this beautiful to dry dishes???


Okay, next - big arguments between Emily and I as to whose fabric this is. She insists that what's mine is hers but I'm thinking not.......


And these two craft magazines - I've not had a chance to look through them yet, but I can't wait to.


Okay, that's it for now. I hope everyone reading is happy and well. Next time I hope to post about craft - but I say that every time don't I??

Cheers
