Who's this here?

I didn’t think I would be doing a post for a while as I am off on holiday at the weekend, only for a week but I am so looking forward to it. It is a holiday suggested by my dear husband as it is our 20th wedding anniversary next week. We are both really looking forward to the break but will no doubt spend most of it asleep, as we are so busy at the moment and not working will be a bit of a shock.
What has made me want to do this post was the parcel the postman delivered this morning. This was from Paula who was my partner in Lucy Lockets Easter bunny swap. I couldn’t wait to unwrap it but couldn’t rip the paper off as Paula had done a delightful little drawing on the wrapping, this was to help Mr postman find my house. (How did Paula know that my postman doesn’t get here until the afternoon at the moment)? Darn, Paula, I had to take the wrapping off very carefully.

When I finally got the paper off, just look at this delightful box with a butterfly on the lid that I found inside.

I took off the lid to find a note written by Paula in the smallest writing and the most delicate envelope.

Under the tissue paper was hiding this delightful little bunny with the rosiest cheeks and the cutest whiskers. What you can’t see is his or her fluffy white tail. We will have to think of a name for this newcomer to the family.

I checked the box and there was more inside, a bundle of fabric and some delightful cup cake buttons.

Paula had also made a most delightful Easter card for me with Mr Tortoise on the front made with appliqué and machine quilting. She had also written a poem inside. Cute

And that wasn’t all, hidden at the bottom almost covered with more tissue paper was a reel of spotty ribbon; it was such a special gift as I just love spots.

I then unwrapped the fabrics to enjoy them and look what I found inside, this brilliant cake fabric, just for me.

Thank you Paula, I am one happy bunny.

What a lovely parcel you received (and how clever is your postman to know to deliver something addressed to just 'Stephanie'? :-p )

Lucy's Easter swap was fabulous wasn't it? Well done. x
