I got Post!

 I had been waiting. And watching for the postman. He was resolutely not appearing at my gate. Or, at least, not with the post I wanted.

And then, he came. But, being unaware of my waiting, he decided he couldn't put my package through my letterbox, and couldn't see my doorbell, clearly labelled with our house number, so dropped a card in the box and took my parcel away! Not fair!

but, my lovely OH went and collected it from the depot next day!

and in the very firm wee package, was this pretty card, and a parcel wrapped in pattern!

What a great idea for wrapping paper! Though I am not sure I could be strong enough to do it myself, I still think it is a brilliant idea! Clever partner.
 And there, inside, was this beautiful pouch!  So pretty, and I know how tricky those top ends are- I struggled to try to get it right, but the lovely Linda did a beautiful job for me!
Such a neat finish! I think she is magic!
 and the zips are put in beautifully,
 Cannot fault those zips!  and the colour matching, too!


and then, she STUFFED it!




Pretty yellow fabric, pretty blue fabric, pretty green fabric!
And so much of it! I do not think she could have squashed any more in!

And she added a dainty little pair of fairy scissors!

Is it any wonder that either of my daughters would be happy to rehome it?!

Not that they will get the chance!

Overload of exclamation marks!!! but well deserved ones.

Now, my friend Lucy is having a giveaway, to celebrate her 2nd year of blogging- please go over and give her your support- she is a sweetheart, and makes lovely stuff! and have a wee peep at her etsy shop while you are there. She makes such fun tooth pillows for little ones.

What a very lovely pouch! I am doubly impressed as, being scared of inserting zips, this one has two! Beautiful and worth the wait - silly postman.
