Wonderful Surprises

I'm very late in showing off some wonderful gifts I received from some lovely bloggy friends over Christmas and New Years. Before another minute passes here we go...

First up was Suzee from AppleHead Threads. She totally surprised me with this amazing package full of little presents. I unwrapped a special fold-up shopping bag. Though I prefer it unrolled so I can appreciate the pretty fabrics. Such beautiful purple roses. This has become my everyday bag.

Then I unwrapped not just one...
or two...
but 3 little purses!! Oh my golly, each one is so amazing. I love that they're all so different and each is full of character. Suzee said she couldn't decide which one to send so she sent me 3!! I'm so spoilt!! One I use for coins, one I use for my lip-gloss and one I use for my little cards.
Suzee of AppleHead Threads you sure know how to make someone's day!!

Next are these amazing gifts from Melody from the House on the Side of the Hill Blog.

A teeny tiny Angel beautifully beaded with little flowers. She'll be my lucky sewing Angel and keep me company as I sew and help make my stitches go where they should.
There was also this chirpy little ducky pin keep. How cute is the gorgeous yoyo detail on his wing. Melody has used such fun citrus colours, and her stitches are so perfect. But wait, that's not all...
A matching pincushion!! This now has the pride of place on my hand sewing table. Its cute, quirky and full of yoyo goodness. I love it so much!!!
It's wonderful which ever side you look at! Lots of pretty daisy details.
Thank you so much Melody!! Your wonderful gifts always amaze me and make me smile with delight!!


Last but not least was a Giveaway Day prize. I only won one prize but it was the best prize on offer without a doubt! This wonderful mini quilt is called Stars Over Paris and was made by Suz of PatchworknPlay. I'm used to seeing it as the header for her blog for the past year so it's quite surreal to see it here in real life. The hand quilting on it is soo precious and the fabrics are so wonderful. I do so love red/white polka dots!

I even love the back!!
So Suz, Thank you from the bottom of my heart for entrusting me to look after Stars Over Paris, I love this little quilt berry berry much!

Aren't I just the luckiest little daisy!!

A special Daisy, that's for sure! Now I really do need to change my header!! The pincushion is SO sweet! I love the vintage daisy lace on the top! I had some of that on a dress when I was a little girl! Adorable!
