Items I Have Received (picture heavy)

Over the last couple months I have received some packages in the mail. Prizes from 2 give-aways, items in exchange for one of the kits in my stash, and a RAK. I did thank the senders via email but I didn't post pictures to my blog. Well I finally got my act together and took pictures for the blog, so here we go!

First up from Dusty (at Dusty's Daily Doings ) I received some Anchor floss already on bobbins. Towards the end of 2010 I had mentioned that I was working on acquiring a set of Anchor floss and Dusty said she had some that she wasn't going to use. She offered to send them to me and she did. Thank you very much Dusty I really appreciate it!

I sent one of the kits in my stash to Jane (no blog) in the UK. I'd already had it for a while and did not stitch it. She had been looking for it for a long time. So I offered to send it in exchange for a piece of 28ct evenweave type fabric. Jane was VERY generous! In addition to the fabric she also sent a beautiful brass and enamel bookmark, a dragon needleminder, and a kit for 3 little cards! WOW, Thank you so much Jane I love it all!

Back in Sept. 2010 Karoline (From Karoline's Corner) held a giveaway to celebrate her 500th post. I was the lucky winner of that giveaway! I was floored when it arrived and I opened it to find a gorgeous stitcher's pocket, package of needles, and stork embroidery scissors! Thank you so much Karoline, it is all wonderful! I will treasure the stitcher's pocket always, you did a fantastic job on it!

Jeanne (Willow Tree Stitcher) held a giveaway for her blogoversary and I was one of the lucky winners! I was so surprised when the package arrived. She made a gorgeous rose project bag and included in it a fantastic needlebook and added a package of needles (Bohin a brand I was wanting to try) and a pair of sheathed Ghinger stork scissors! And the scissors have a fob that match the stitched piece inside the needlebook! Everything is just wonderful! WOW!

Yes, Jeanne it did cheer me up a bit, thank you so very much!
