How lovely is it when you receive an unexpected parcel in the mail, I love it. Especially when that parcel contains a gift, and even more so when it's a 'just because' gift, no birthday or Christmas in sight. All wrapped up beautifully too.
I was reading my lovely friend Maggie's blog, she writes at Blackcountry Wench. In her Fully Finished post she showed some gorgeous cross stitch project envelopes that she'd made, I never dreamt for one moment that one of them was for me.
Cross stitch is quite a new hobby for me, I'd dabbled in the past but I'm really getting into it just recently. I have lots of notions and knitting accessories, but very few things for cross stitch and I'll admit, I've actually been looking at project envelopes to buy. Well, a new hobby, let's face it, I'll need all the bits and bobs to go with it.
To say I was over the moon when I opened the parcel is an understatement. I'm absolutely thrilled with my beautiful project envelope, but that wasn't all, Maggie had also sent the second one she'd made for Eleanor, who has only just taken up cross stitch but is loving it. How kind is that.
Inside each bag is a matching lavender pouch, they smell gorgeous, and there was such a cute card too.
Thank you so much, Maggie. We're both thrilled to bits and the bags were put into use as soon as they were received.
Don't you think that having lovely accessories for your hobby is such a treat, I do.
