A Good Week for Post

I've had some wonderful surprises through the post lately. I was lucky enough to win this gorgeous project bag and pincushion in a giveaway on Sally's blog.
They are just beautiful Sally.
I received loads of wonderful gifts for my %*@#th birthday yesterday. Too many to bore you with them all but including these lovely things from fellow stitchers/bloggers. The Penguin Calendar from Barb (penguins!!!!!), Dragon Floss and ribbon from Clare and pretty scissors from Julie. Thank you ladies. I love them all.
Lots of interesting Christmas parcels arriving too, to be shaken, sniffed and prodded, but not opened early (I am very self-controlled these days), and here are some of the latest goodies from the Advent Exchange, fabric, threads, a bookmark, notepad, bag-charm kit, wash mitt and penguin socks.

Do you think people are starting to get the idea that I might just like penguins a teensy bit?

Maybe if I start putting on my blog that I'd like Colin Firth smothered in chocolate...


Sally said...

Glad you like them Christine.

Gorgeous birthday gifts. Do you like penguin by any chance lol.

Barb said...

Nah Christine he has been on my list for ages - as Darcy lol.

Drat I missed your Birthday!

Hope you had a lovely day anyway. I'm just making a couple of decisions about which of the hundreds of Christmas small designs I want to attempt over the next 2 weeks!

Julie said...

Mmm Colin Firth in chocolate, I do hope Santa grants your wish for that and he is gift wrapped under your tree on Christmas morning!
Super birthday gifts, lovely advent goodies too.

Christine, you can't have him, because I already have first dibs! Isn't he just yummy? Well, I guess he would be, smothered in chocolate and all. Hey, I'd even forgo the chocolate if I had to.

Heidi Kuijer said... many lovely things. And a belated Happy Birthday to you Christine!!!

How are things where you are in Cornwall? I keep hearing bad reports on the news about Cornwall and flooding.

Hugs from Holland ~

Looks like someone got spoiled - Happy belated birthday!

You can't go wrong with penguins, unless maybe it's dragons. ;)
