Feel the love!

It may be the day after Valentine's Day but I certainly feel loved today, as this morning I received a wonderful parcel of goodies from Cass at Snailblazer as part of the EB Valentine's Day Swap 08.

Cass is a very clever bag-maker and I was lucky enough to receive one of her "It's a bag" bags which fold in on themselves into a pocket so they can be tucked in almost anywhere ready to be used.


The parcel also included these two lovely ladies, Miss Lucy Buttons and her sister Miss Alice Buttons, who have been an instant hit and this morning have been walked in the pram, had a jump on the trampoline and been for a swing, as well as being kissed often.

In fact when I pinched them for the briefest of moments while I took this pic, there were tears!


The rest of the goodies included Lindt bunnies (my all-time favourite chocolate - well done Cass!), they appear to me to be bite-sized! Some fabulous fabric, four great patterns, sweet heart-shaped buttons and a huge bag of other buttons - some of which will be sewn onto a shirt today.

Thanks Cass, I feel very loved!

Glad you liked it all Karen. I forgot to say that big bag of buttons wasn't part of the gift they were those vintage buttons I had heaps of that you asked for ages ago.
