Lots of Treats!
Look what was packed in my mail box today! Lots of treats!
How exciting that they all came on the same day! My little happy dance at the mailbox surely did not go unnoticed by the neighbors. Such a surprise!
First, don't you just love Cath Kidston's packages? Even though it says "merry christmas", its still a treat. (though I would love it better if it said "Happy Christmas"..afterall, isn't that what the British say?) Anyway. It's too hard to throw the package away! but these lovely treats were inside.
I was a little disappointed, however, because most of my order was not there. It totally made up for it when I called their customer service to ask about it only to speak with a lovely woman with the most charming accent! Oh boy! It was a treat. (Silly, maybe, but I love British things and people!)
The next package was full of these little lovelies. Gorgeous garnets, prehnites to complete the orders of the ring that was so popular thanks to Pinterest, and some sweet rose quartz. I'm a little behind on planning for Valentines day but hopefully I'll have something in the shop by Monday with these little sweeties.
And, last but not least, fabric. Oh, Oh, OH!
Gorgeous fabrics. I have absolutely no idea what I am going to do with them yet, other than a blanket, but oh my! They are just too stunning! I'll have to think long about the perfect pattern or I'll be afraid to cut them.
Look at them! Yum~
Those were my treats for the day and I still got some time in to finish piecing this little thing. I'll post more pictures later because by the time I finished the light was gone.
I hope you had a treat filled day, too!
