Fun Mail Week ...

Yep sometimes mail can be fun! Doesn't happen very often around here ... it's usually bills in the mail, but this week there was more fun than bills. The thank you emails have been sent so now I can show off what I received. The first to arrive a package from Donna. I won a drawing on her blog a couple of weeks ago. Don't you just love this paper!

everything was so nicely tucked away in the box ... I almost didn't want to disturb any of it ... but of course I HAD to see everything ...

Donna was so generous with her giveaway. There's ribbon and fabric and a cute Halloween pencil, a really cute orange pedicure kit, a Stacy Nash pattern that I can't wait to start, and a really fun looking Halloween kit with felt and fabric applicas ... and tucked at the very bottom is a copy of the new JCS Halloween issue ... Donna, thank you so much for everything :)

Another happy mail day brought a little package from Sharon. She had my name for the Lizzie*Kate Exchange Round 2. Look what Sharon stitched and finished for me ... an adorable Halloween cat ornament ... my camera washed out the fabric, it's really a pretty green. Maybe Sharon got a better picture of it before she mailed it ... I'll have to check out her blog, cause the green fabric really is wonderful. I can't wait to decorate for Halloween, he'll be a great addition. Thanks Sharon, I just love him and your finishing is wonderful!

In between packages I received some needed Belle Soie's Noir so I can finish Kindered Spirits. All in all ... it definately was a great mail week!

Tuesday was SAL day with Natasha ... I got a little more done on the bird, he has a tail now and the starting of an autumn leaf hanging off his tail feathers. I didn't get as much done as I wanted ... hopefully I get more time next Tuesday ...


I'm really glad tomorrow's Friday ... I have a busy weekend but hopefully a productive one too ... those two don't always go together do they!
I hope you find your joy in your stitches ...

I'm grateful for fun mail days ...

Wow what fun mail anything is better than bills anyday :)

Loving the bird, I was thinking about stitching my bird in a deep dark blue but decided the original color would look better.

Enjoy your weekend!
