Stitching goodies arrived!!!

Oh what FUN it is to get a package in the mail. Am I the only one who really does stalk the mailbox??? No...not really if you are a xstitcher of any sort because we know that sometimes we have to order our supplies through the mail for our hobby.

On Monday, I received this wonderful little Floss Tag in the mail from a message board that I belong to. We were to xstitch a freebie chart and mail it to our partner. Shirl stitched me this wonderful Floss Tag over one thread. She also included a personal packet of Jelly Belly Jelly Beans with the floss tag and an adorable Frog Scissor Fob that I just now realized I had forgotten to take with the picture. I'll have to show that later on. I'm sorry Shirl for forgetting to show the fob and jelly beans with the floss tag.

Today was another exciting mail day!! From the same message board, I received my Easter Basket Exchange from Rae!!! She filled it with lots of stitching goodies and of course.....some chocolate!!! In my basket I got a package of floss bags (one can never have too many), some fabric, mother of pearl heart floss rings, a pink bead caddy (pink is my favorite color), a pair of ladybug scissors, a pink stitchers caddy to hold your counting pins, scisssors, and other goodies; a Whitman tin with a retractable pink tape measure, an egg sticky notepad, some xstitch charts and 2 skeins of threads. All this was in a PINK container that served it's purpose of being my "Easter Basket"! Which will be used later on for storage in my sewing room. Hopefully you can see these things in the picture.

I now have to start a NEW PROJECT to be able to use my new Mother of Pearl heart thread rings!!! Aren't they just the cutest thing? You can see them on the left hand side of the picture?? I have the perfect chart in mind. A With My Needle needlebook.

I feel soooo SPOILED!!! I love all my gifts I get in the mail. to find that needlebook chart and see if I can get started on it.

Tomorrow I will be in my sewing room all day cutting out matching Easter dresses for my daughter and me! I've had the fabric and pattern for a while now but just motivated enough to get busy on them. Now I am and I want them done by at least this time next week. I'll keep you posted on how I'm doing on them.

Have a great day today!
