lucky me x 2!

today, i love my postman. not that i don't normally love him, he is very nice and regularly brings things that are too big to fit in my letterbox to my front door - very thoughtful. but today, two special reasons for love!

1. my swap partner for this month, Cathy, 's block arrived!!! and it is lovely - such great piecing. and she included a fabo piece of fabric in the colours requested - can't wait to put this quilt together one day!

love it - and not only that, this beautiful card was included, that Cathy made herself!  what a clever crafty lady!  (please excuse my hand - holding it up was the only way i could stop the flash washing out the photo!)

2. the other reason to love the postie today was the arrival of a prize from Homespun!  lucky lucky me!  "dreaming of a white christmas" by kerry swain was my prize and it is a beautiful book full of recipes, craft and decorating tips for a tradition christmas.

off to bed now - hope you all had a great FNSI
will post update tomorrow morning with some sleep in me!

pugs and kisses
