Postman Came A Callin'


A while back, Valerie was celebrating her 4-year blogversary and guess who the winner was? Moi! When she said she was going to make a stitchy-something, I didn't expect the package I got.

First, she sent me the sweetest card -- and Yes, Valerie, I read it first :) In her card, she mentioned the theme of the package was "pink". I did notice the pretty pink and lavender packages! :)



I sat on my dining room floor, excitedly opening each one like a little kid at Christmas! I LOVE presents. Err... Umm... Valerie uses a LOT of tape (just like me, lol).

I would've been thrilled with just the stitchy gift she made, but she sent me all this:

Carries Creations "Barn Red"
Dinky Dyes "Bush Christmas"
Vicki Clayton "Moss Agate"

M Designs "Rose Mosiac" Needle Roll
My Mark "Garden Walk"

Laura Ashley List Pad
Laura Ashley Tape Measure (love the floral designs!)
Altoids Mints

Silweavers Solo 32ct Linen
Fat Quarter of Fabric


Last, but not least... the stitchy gift, along with a matching pair of scissors! Valerie said this is only the 2nd one she's ever made... and I love it. Didn't she do a fabulous job?


I'm not sure, but I think it's a Shepherd's Bush design. Look at those *tiny* little bee buttons! Soooo cute! Thank you Valerie, for celebrating your 4-year blogversary and hosting the giveaway. I sure do enjoy reading about your life adventures!

Yay! I'm glad you like it! And, um, yea...I love tape and use way too much of it. :)
You're right! The scissor fob is Shepherd's Bush Happy Wishes. I thought it was cute for Spring.
Have a happy weekend!
