Surprise in the Mail for ME!

Today is one of those days I am amazed and soooo, soooo blessed by a special blogging friend, whom I have never met in person but am thankful at least we have connected thru blogging!

Tanya of Friendship Crossing sent me a surprise b'day gift which has just landed on my door mat and when I saw the Kentucky address I couldn't speak for astonishment that someone would even send me sthg from all the way across the ocean!

Tanya is a wonderful cross stitcher and made this great sewing pouch in such fun fabric!
But it was filled with a cross stitcher's dream selection of linens in different tones and counts - something I wouldn't be able to find over here!

I LOVE these buttons!

And I can't wait to do this snowman cross stitch!
Tanya must have known I love vintage sewing pieces - isn't this great?

And there were more needles and ribbon and a cute notepad and even Stride spearmint gum!
It was an awesome package and I couldn't take it all in at once!

So Tanya THANK YOU so much for making my day - you brought tears to my eyes with your thoughtfulness and friendship! So glad our paths have crossed!

Please all stop by tomorrow as I have just to put the finishing stitches into something and will show you tomorrow!

Hugs and Best wishes
