*jumps up and down with excitement*

Guess what arrived at my door just as I was finishing my previous post?!! A package from Maree! Yup, my paper bag swap item!


And wow, wow, wow! It's fantastic! Maree has done such an amazing job, and I'm so thrilled with the results. Here are the bits and pieces that I sent her....

And this is the result! A gorgeous wall hanging, that has a beautiful stitchery on it, a fantastic pin cushion (I've been admiring that design for ages!), some very cute farm yard cake decoartions and two sachets of coffee!!


Haven't I been spoiled?!! Here is a better picture of the wallhanging. I love the colours Maree has used with my fabric, and the stitchery design is lovely.


The amount of detail in here is incredible! Check out those fantastic and neat stitches!


I LOVE this little flower that is attached to the wall hanging! It says, "Missymacks paper bag swap 2009." Maree said I could take it off if I wanted to, but no way! I love it and it's staying!



The pincushion is just amazing, and once again, Marees work is just lovely. It's going to have pride of place on my sewing table!


Thank you, thank you, thank you to Maree!! You have done such a beautiful and wonderful job, and I love it all so much. I'll treasure it always!


Now I'm off to have a cup of coffee, and 'ohh and ahh' over my treasures a little more!

Thanks MM! I'm so pleased that you love it! (I didn't know if you even drank coffee... those bags are my favourite right now!) The cake toppers were too cute to leave there... I never did find that chocolate that I bought you... wonder where it is....! (I hope no more of the blue water erasable pen leeched out into the stitchery... it was a pain to remove!) Has everyone else gotten their parcels yet?!

Lucky you! But I guess you deserved it after all the work you put into organising such a fun swap. Enjoy if you have time just now to Ooh and Aah some more.
