in the mail box: pin cushions + print

The postie has been very good to me today, and the timing couldn't be better as I've been quite under the weather with a tummy bug. Anyway, I was delighted to recieve a gorgeous parcel from Ruth at Little Tree Bird with not one, but two pin cushions in it AND a little box of goodies ...



Thankyou, thankyou, thankyou, Ruth - you really did make my day! The half pear pin cushion is genius! Thanks also to Kate for holding such a fabulous swap!
The other parcel was all the way from the UK - can you guess from who by the packaging ...


A couple of weeks ago I could not resist buying Lisa's latest hand screen printed work of art - Japanese Spring Girl ...


Thanks, Lisa - she is just so beautiful! You are one talented lady!
