Postie brought me some lovelies from some lovelies

Last Wednesday I fell through the front door, well actually I got stopped in the drive by Gav!!!
Who pointed at the truck load of logs that had been deposited on our driveway during the day, & said "We need to stack these now encase it rains "
To which I replied "My hairdresser is coming over in half an hour to cut our hair!!! how will get all these stacked before she arrived?????"
"We best get started now!! Go and put your wellies on!"
So I then fell through the door & dropped my bags on the floor & what did I see out of the corner of my eye? But 2 parcels for me on the coffee table. Oh, oh, oh I have to stack logs!
Parcels will have to wait.
So I stacked logs until the hairdresser arrived, then I had my hair cut by which time Gav had done the rest.
He then had a hair cut, then we had dinner finally then I turned to the parcels sat on the coffee table & Opened the little one first.
Inside was a little bundle of lovely CK goodies from Victoria & Kelly for my birthday.
Thank you girlie's, you know me too well!!!

I have been converting the jam pot cover set in the new catalogue since it arrived and seriously thought it would be my next purchase on visiting the Brighton treasure trove that is all Cath.

I then turned my attention to the other larger parcel, now I have had to learn over the past year that when a swap parcel arrives, you have to open it carefully & then photograph each step of the opening of said gift.
So I treat myself to ripping the brown paper or jiffy bag open like it's Christmas!
Then I open and photograph as I said above.
I had a wonderful Fabric Swap parcel from Catherine of "Kids & Capers"

I received a gorgeous handmade card,some beautiful Tilda Buttons, 3 pretty fat quarters, some lovely embroidery thread, a fabulous sewing magazine, some bright pink Ric rack & a hand made note pad all wrapped in a wonderful handmade Handbag by Catherine.
Oh how I was speechless as I opened each & every gift.
Thank you Catherine, I have posted your parcel today I hope you like your goodies.
So after my busy day at work, my log stacking, my hair cut & dinner it was a lovely way to end the day.
I hope your week is going well, I just watched David Cameron become the prime minister and now I going to watch Heston work his magic in his 80's cooking show.

What a lovely bag, looks very 'your style' I don't know how you managed the suspense of waiting so long to open those parcels! Can't wait to see what you sent your swap.

Just like I told Catherine at Kids and Capers (you know, YOU'RE Catherine =]) MAIL and FABRIC!!! HOORAY! Happy, happy, happy! That's a wonderful reward for stacking wood, that's for sure.

Tomorrow, I think, I get to go to the delicious fabric store in Keene. I drool over the fabrics that I can't afford but revel in the sale section.

Thanks for spending time in the sunny spot with me!!

Love, Katy Noelle

Hi Sophie,
I just wanted to say a HUGE thank you for the fabby fabric you sent (and so much of it)! So sorry I seem to have had an email clear out and cannot find yours to send you a proper email. I have got my thinking cap on as regards what I might make... Thanks again, so kind of you, the Munchy one is thrilled.
Love Hen x
