Long Overdue Post

I have been sitting on this post for awhile now. Not because I wanted to but because I was waiting for Canada Post to get their act together and deliver the mail that I was waiting for >:o(

I truly have some wonderful friends and Nia is one of them :o) This little guy arrived ages ago and I feel bad that it took me this long to show him off -


I was one of the lucky recipients of her bunny sachets. Nia filled them with lavender and they smell oh-so-heavenly! I just adore the card that she sent with it.

Nia also spoiled me on my birthday and sent me 'the most' perfect bunny bag -


She not only stitched the bunny but she sewed the bag up for me too and I have to say that she is a perfectionist! Nia's work is amazing. She also included the scissors that were on my wish list. My collection is growing by leaps and bounds!

Denise also sent me something off my wish list and it arrived just in time for my birthday -


Another sampler to add to my sampler collection. LOL! Awesome :o)

One day I picked up a huge box from the post office and was shocked at all the wonderful goodies inside! Donna (no Blog) sent me this amazing assortment -


I had to take the picture twice because I had already used the water bottle and forgot to put it in the picture ;o) I have no idea where she found the Pumpkin Patch sign but it couldn't be more perfect! She also found some pink ribbon stickers and I've been looking out for these for the longest time.

Karen got creative and did her shopping on Etsy -


What could be more perfect for my birthday than a necklace with my name and birthstone? :o) I love it!

I also had a birthday order come from Needlecraft Corner but everything was put away by this time so unfortunately you don't get to see my stash :o( I can tell you that Lady Alex arrived with fabric and the rest of the beads I need to stitch her though.

Finally, I have wanted this pattern for a LONG time now and was lucky enough to buy it off of Heather -


Thank you Heather! It's always a pleasure buying from you. LOL!

I want to thank all my super friends for your thoughtfulness and kindness. I am truly lucky to know you all and I appreciate all that you do :o)

Can you see me blushing?!?! =) LOL!!
Thank you for the lovely compliments sweetie, I'm truly happy to know that you enjoyed my gifts :)
I wasn't sure if I should stitch the bunny in that color but I wanted to be really discrete, like he was hiding and peeking heheheh
oh! I forgot to tell you, feel free to cut the ribbons if you think it's too long, cut as you like ;)

How many gifts you have there!! Lucky girl :D

I hope you had a great time during your vacation! :)
It's really nice to have you back again! :D I missed reading your blog!!! heheeh

Congrats on all the gifts, and happy belated birthday. I follow Nia's blog too, and so I saw the bunny before she sent it. It's lovely!! (Not the sachet, the bag!) Hope you enjoy all your lovely gifts, and grats on acquiring Dandy Dreams. Can't wait to watch your progress!
