It's been a testing week, the worst thing being a huge water leak from the central heating system...carpets up, gushing water etc etc but thank goodness for a husband who is brilliant at fixing things!

Anyhow, I grabbed a chance to chat with Julia this morning as she was en route on a task...that cheered me up to start with.

Then when I got home, this was waiting for me.
Even the postman was grinning as he handed this over!

From Kay in New Mexico..she insisted on sending something in return for a parcel from Di (Pixie) and myself. A couple of fat quarters is what I thought I was getting....instead, well, see for yourselves....

Gorgeously bright fabrics (I think Kay and I might be Aging Hippies together!), beautiful ribbons whose colours and patterns are fantastic. And I may never get to New Mexico in reality but the mug will brighten my tea drinking :-)

Thank you, Kay..I just feel so happy and thankful to have you as a crafting friend.

I'm joining in with Annie's Smiles on a Friday spot.
