I don't have fireflies in my garden - which is a shame... only cats, bees, a dog and the odd dragonfly!! So please settle down with a cuppa, put your feet up and enjoy!

Overflowing Mailbox!

Hello!  I am back again :o)

Just a quick post today to show you what my mailbox has been receiving the last couple of days....

Firstly I received this lovely bookmark from Vickie (A Stitcher's Story).  Vickie stitched this lovely bookmark as a thank you for the pink fabric I sent her for her pink charm quilt.  A link to Vickie's post about receiving the fabric is here.

Isn't this just gorgeous?  One side has a picture of a King Charles Cavalier just like Mitzi and the other side Vickie has stitched two sweet grey kitties just like Oscar and Felix!  So sweet - thank you Vickie - I love it! ♥

My second gift in the mailbox came from Jo (Serendipitous Stitching).  Jo recently had a blogaversary giveaway and I was lucky enough to win one of the charts that Jo was giving away.

This chart could very well be added to my Gifted Gorgeousness List one day!  Thanks Jo - love the chart ♥

I also recently attacked the credit card and received my new stash additions in the mail this week as well.

A couple of rather cute needle minders and a new scissor fob from Gina's Unique Needleminders also arrived in the mailbox.

Don't you just love Tigger and Eeyore, and I just couldn't go past the Tardis x 2!!

I also purchased a couple of new Mira's over the last few weeks.... and they finally arrived....

Both of these are just beautiful especially Florentina with her kitty companion.

And finally, one more thing to show you!  I received this most wonderful surprise in the mail on Friday.  Valérie (Fée le point) sent me this absolutely gorgeous stitched box full of beautiful things...

Isn't this just gorgeous?  I love the sweet little birdies and the box is just so delightfully cute!  And then when I opened the box it was filled with this gorgeous crafty stuff

Valérie, thank you so much for this amazing surprise!  It really made my day and week getting this beautiful gift in the mail :o) It is going to take pride of place in the craft room where I can see it every time I go in there and then I will think of you! ♥

That's it for this post of surprises..... the mailman was a deliverer of wonderful mail this week!

Til next time, happy stitching
Hugs xx
