Yesterday, mom and I were sitting outside enjoying the beautiful day. Mom was reading and I was hand appliqueing. The postman came and delivered a package all the way from Oz. Hum.... I quickly opened it and found these wonderful goodies from Leigh. What a pleasant surprise! I just couldn't believe it!
There's this beautiful fabric from The Old German Quilthouse. Two (2) Freddo, Chocolate Koalas and a Polly waffle, which are all new to me. Two (2) Caramello Koala, yes one's missing. I gave one to my mom. They are to die for! Believe me, the one left is NOT because I have immense willpower, but because my body has not yet recovered. I'll spare you the details. I'm guarding the last one! Hands off - I'm not sharing! lol
Last but not least, Words of Wisdom Stitchery - a Christine Book Designs. The stitchery says "My soul is fed by needle and thread". It is just beautiful! I have been toying with the idea of getting back into embroidery. So many of my imaginary friends (as Leigh's DH likes to tease) embroider and their work is gorgeous. This was a hobby I used to do in high school. I still have a pair of jeans that I embellished with hand embroidery! They don't fit, but hey, I still have them. When I'm better perhaps I'll dig them out and take a photo of them! This stitchery kit will provide me with the perfect opportunity to get back into it.
This surprise could not have come at a better time. I have not been feeling my best. I really didn't expect to feel this way. It seems to be taking forever for my body to recover from the surgery. Thank you Leigh, you made my day!
