Lovely goodies in my mailbox

I have been wanting to get this post up for over a week and my days just keep getting ahead of me. So I'm just stopping everything for a bit today and getting caught up. Phooey on my scheduled work for a few minutes! I received some super lovely goodies in the mail recently and just can't wait any longer to share them!

When I recently did a Next Stop London giveaway, Laura of Craftstorming was one the winners of some fabric. And lickety split she whipped up the cutest little PJs for her gorgeous son Casper. I mean how unbelievably adorable is he?

Soon after, Laura surprised me with a little mailing of London themed goodies of my own!

Squeeee!! The post it notes are in full rotation and being well loved here in Austin. And the ribbon is waiting patiently to be used in my own PJ pants. That's of course assuming I can ever, ever get them done!... There's some seam ripping to be done (as is characteristic with all of my sewing these days!) that's keeping me from adding them to the a list of finished projects. Soon I hope!! Thank you again Laura, I love everything and it was so incredibly sweet to think of me and I can't wait to show off the finished PJs.

Then there was the amazing package from the delightfully sweet and very talented Penny of Sew Take a Hike. And the package was so pretty with the Birdies and Chairs tape from my store coupled with tape from Lucie at Summersville!

Penny shipped me the most phenomenal tote as surprise! ( Penny and I have gotten to be friends via our blogs and I was just so touched when she made me this amazing tote. All of the fabrics were hand selected for me and there are even little bits of Laurie Wisbrun fabric worked throughout. I just LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it and was just so touched. Thank you sweet Penny! Your creativity never ceases to surprise and delight me. And the straps :) You are amazing.

Laurie, I'm so happy you love the tote and I hope you're able to use it until it just won't go any longer!
