Saved by the postman

I'd just finished the usual chores - washing up, sorting out the laundry, stripping the beds - and had tidied up the mess I'd made in the study. And I was thinking that I ought to get out into the garden and do some weeding. But then the front door bell rang, and there stood the postman with a large box in his hand - my Stitcher's Angel swap parcel from Pia in Denmark. And my the time I'd finished going through everything and admiring it all, it had started raining! So now there's nothing else to be done but to sit down with a cup of tea and enjoy the magazine.

Thank you so much Pia for these lovely presents, it has really made my morning. I love everything and know that it will get good use. Now I want it to stop raining so that I can get out and plant the bulbs!

And thank you also to Helen for organising this great swap again this year.

Lovely parcel you've received. Such pretty stitchery. You'll have to show us pictures of the tulips when the bloom in the spring.

Glad to hear it arrived safely, now I can reveal everything on my own blog.
