Wondering...

...what my mail carrier must think when I get packages every couple of days. Maybe, "That lady has gone crazy on eBay again...?"

My second Ornament Swap came this week. This one is from Lisa V in Australia. I just love the red and gold colors Lisa has used. And that tassel rocks! The backing fabric has a red & gold theme and the overall ornament is expertly constructed as well.

Thank you, Lisa! I love this ornament ~ soooo much!

Remember I needed some mauve silk ribbon? Glenna was able to get her hands on some to send me. Somehow, she couldn't resist including a very sweet RAK in the package. I love surprises!


I really like these Victoria Sampler bird ornaments. They are just the sweetest images...except for maybe the #2 leaflet ~ those were kind of an odd pair. Thank you so much, Glenna! I really appreciate you getting the ribbon for me and the chart was such a nice gesture.



I haven't finished the bunny fob yet...not had any stitching time this week. It's "Spring Cleaning" at work (my idea) and "the boss" must do her share or she can't expect her employees to do the same. Lead by example, I say! This means I have trashed my hands with all the scrubbing and scouring. No one feels like stitching with cracked, dried out fingers. Blech!


Thank you for visiting my blog today!

Keep the postal carrier guessing it is funner that way!

staci said...

LOL, I used to wonder that when I was participating in a lot of exchanges :) Enjoy your sweet exchange!

Suzanne said...

I think my parcel man wonders what's going on at my house sometimes as well. Especially the week he delivered almost a parcel a day and even two on one day. My DH thinks it's a great joke!

KaLu - Claudia said...

lol ... i think my mail man hates me already from all the ebay and online cross stitch shopping

thats why i couldnt understand when Las Vegas was going to close the post office for a day (saturday) because people were just not using their services as much .. i was like what??? so i just decided to help USPS and buy some more things =D

Cant wait to see the project in need of the mauve ribbon ! its such a pretty color

Carissa said...

Another nice ornie and those birdies are just so sweet!

Lynn said...

I have to visit the P.O. each day rather than have delivered mail so the ladies there definitely comment each time I pick up a parcel. "Wow, you must stitch a lot, eh?" If they only knew!
Great ornament and a fantastic RAK!

Carolyn NC said...

Lovely swap and RAK!

Pumpkin said...
