Surprise Monday!!!

Well, what a good Monday I had! Doctor's appointment went well. I worked at the office until Emma arrived at 4pm. She and I went home and played 'til around 6pm when Ashlee came back by to take her for a "play date".

After she left, I went to get the mail and had two boxes addressed to me. I had to wait to open them until I had fixed supper and cleaned up the kitchen. Afterwards,  I retreated to my sewing room where the packages were waiting for me.

The first one was a wonderful box full of goodies from Bobbie who had my name for our Christmas swap on AAPG group on eBay. She did some beautiful crossstitch on linen...a journal cover and Santa and his reindeer. Two great pieces of blue wool. The sheep designed by Deirdre was needlepunched and put on a small plaque, which I already have hanging on my sewing room door.  Also two beeswax sheep ornaments covered with cinnamon and some small ornaments she had used to tie on the packages. These will hang on the small tree I put on the kitchen counter.  She also sent some DMC floss and hand-dyed linen. I have never stitched on 28 count linen, but am going to try it out.

Wrapped goodies from Bobbie
All the wonderful gifts unwrapped.
 You can see that I received some beautiful gifts from one very talented lady. Thank you so much, Bobbie. You brought a big smile to my face.

Well, the second box was from Kelley, also on AAPG group. I could not think why she was sending me a box.  I opened it and it was stuffed to the brim with wool, patterns, cotton velvet, a strawberry pinkeep, a scissor/needlecase, a notebook, and an ABC pin.  The card she sent said it was for a swap we did in June.  Life this summer had been so hectic I forgot that I had participated. But it was sure a nice surprise. Kelley, I am thrilled with all of my goodies. You sure know how to spoil a person. Thanks so much!

All my goodies from Kelley
Well, that is all. Just thought I would share with you my goodies from two wonderful and talented ladies. I am blessed to have such good friends online. I hope someday to meet them in person.

Have a good Tuesday!!
