A Surprise Gift from a Sweet Friend!

This girl.....received the sweetest package from overseas....Australia to be exact.... from this

Inside, I found a letter and several packages all wrapped in tissue paper....even the tissue paper was special....different from the tissue paper we have in the states :)

Not only was there a lovely note....but a tissue keep for my purse....someone is always in need of a tissue and usually I have to just dig one out which doesn't always look so now we will have neat little tissues available when they are needed! Yay!

just look at this adorable fabric!  very vintage looking isn't it?

Tucked inside this was a precious little scissors magnet....which is now residing on my refrigerator....

isn't this so precious!

Then there was the same seam ripper I had admired on Susan's blog....what a sneaky girl!  Isn't this the most clever seam ripper....

And if that was not enough....she made a fantastic mug rug for my morning coffee!  

it's a tea cup!

So I sat down this afternoon and put a cup of coffee on my new mug rug!

This was such a sweet surprise :)  And if you haven't visited Susan's should pop over and see what she has been working on...she creates some amazing quilts and quilty projects!  I am always in awe of her paper piecing!  Thank you are a dear!
