Thank You

About a week ago I got an email from Marc to say I was the lucky winner of her 100 post giveaway. Last night I received a parcel with this inside. (A night photo so not fantastic quality .. but wasn't going to wait until this morning to open it!)

This is the card Marc made.

Marc was so generous and sent me lots of goodies.

This box was full of hidden treasures.

Pretty ribbons ...

gorgeous pink charm squares ...

and a beautifully made zippered pouch.

I also received this very cute wrapping paper, shopping list and notebook.

I've left the best to last as my most favourite gift was this lovely bag made from lots of gorgeous dusky pink and green fabrics. I LOVE it!

Isn't it lovely?

The inside is just as pretty as the outside.

I just couldn't stop taking photos and counted at least 10 different fabrics
... all sewed so beautifully. Thank you Marc, for all the lovely gifts.

Before I forget I must also thank Suzie for this award. I find it so difficult to pass these on to just a few, so if you are reading this post, this is for you.

Also, I just remembered that quite a while ago Cathi gave me the Wylde Women award. Thanks Cathi.

Just to show I've been doing a little sewing, here are a couple of peeks at a project I'm working on at the moment.

Have lots more to share so will be back soon.
