I LOVE Surprises!

When I went to the post office today, I had three... yes THREE packages waiting for me. The first one was from a dear lady in TN named Dee. She had sent me a RAK with threads in fall colors. Aren't they pretty?

The second package was a big white envelope. I knew I was on a stash diet... Yes, remember the 50 Project Challenge?? Whatever could be in that package? When I got home, I opened the big white envelope to find a tiny little note saying: "Enjoy your October package" signed "Your Secret Sister" Awww... Did I ever feel special. Each item in the package was wrapped in tissue paper and sparkly ribbon. What a nice touch! My secret sister has been paying attention to my wishlist, that's for sure. In the package was a chart for Planted Hearts Needle Roll & Scissor Fob by Lavender Wings, 3 skeins of Six Strand Sweets floss that I didn't have (Pumpkin Pie, Guava, Rummed Raisin), a little bookmark kit, a pretty spiral bound notebook (hmmm... good for stash lists?), a package of the most unique 3D handcrafted notecards (These are sooooo cute), and a big box of Skittles. Yum...Skittles!! Thank you secret sister, Thank you!

Lastly, the rest of my order from ABC Stitch Therapy arrived with the supplies I need to do up some of my projects for the challenge. Don't worry.... all this stuff was ordered BEFORE I committed to the challenge.

This girl is doing some happy dancing today. Woo Hoo! I got a stash fix!

As I was uploading pics for this blog entry, I realized I hadn't shared my SSS windfall from last month. The pics are dated 9/19, so I'm guessing I got them shortly before that. You know what they say: Mind is the first to go! (Thank goodness for date stamps.) Anyway, I got 115 skeins of Six Strand Sweets for 32cents a piece. That's almost the whole entire set for less than half of what they normally cost! I was tickled pink, and blue, and orange, and green, and... LOL These too were purchased before "THE" challenge. I really have been a good girl as far as the challenge is concerned.

Oh, if anyone knows of some pretty charts that I can use SSS on... Let me know!
