Oh. My. Goodness.
Once again, I have been completely blown away by the kindness and generosity of fellow bloggers. This time, the blogger in question is Claire of Matching Pegs in Australia. Some time ago I won a little giveaway on her blog - the prize was some cute mini pegs (natch!) Shortly after that, Claire blogged about a quilt of hers that had been published in Australian Homespun magazine, and I very cheekily asked if she could send me a copy of the magazine, and I would send her a UK title in return - a mini swap. Anyway, this morning a parcel landed on my doormat containing this little lot:
Not only did she send the magazine and the pegs (in the little fabric bag) but also:
- A note paper set (her giveaway question was "name your favourite stationery item - mine was pretty notepaper! How thoughtful is that?!)
- A felt flower brooch in purple and lavender - perfect colours for me
- A little tin containing the tiniest star shaped buttons you've ever seen!
- And finally, this beautiful stitchery design
Claire also wrote me the lovliest letter, including some instructions for the stitchery (which is good as I've not done much in the way of embroidery so I don't want to muck this up!)
Here's the page with Claire's quilt on - isn't it fab?! Thank you so much Claire, what a wonderful bloggy friend! There will be a parcel winging it's way to you very soon!
