Good Mail Day

I received two packages in the mail on Friday! Look what I received:

Shelleen had a giveaway on her blog a while back. It's a kit called Peace on Earth by The Silver Needle. There's all sorts of fun fibers and beads. I plan on doing this as my May ornament SAL.

This next package was too big for my PO box, so I had to go to the counter. The clerk commented on the pretty picture on the envelope. I probably had a quizzicle look on my face as I looked to see who it was from. My friend Lisa in CT. I couldn't believe my eyes when I opened it to find a beautiful handmade card, pinkeep, and scissor fob... all in pretty pastels. I was absolutely stunned that she thought of me, that I got all teary-eyed and everything! I loved everything and the card sits in display on my fireplace mantle. Thank you, Lisa!

Aren't they beautiful?

In reading Lisa's blog, I have found out the Amitie/Friendship design is by Windy Willows You'll need to translate from Japanese to English to read it.
