Goodies From the Postie

I am in an online friends group and we are having a Redwork Swap at the moment and of course I couldn't resist seeing as how I hate redwork so much. Lol. Well yesterday the postie left me this...
My heart beat faster as soon as I saw the Tim Tams. Inside those lovely packages from my dear friend Shez who happened to be my Angel in this swap was the loveliest Christmas wall hanging....take a look!
So much gorgeous stitching and can you see the subject matter....ohh Miss Mistlemouse will not be best pleased when she sees these gorgeous mousey folk. I just love it.
Shez also included that lovely butterfly notebook and the paper is recycled (love that). So what a bundle of favourite things....Timmy's, Christmas and redwork and a pretty notebook. Feeling pretty special here. Oh by the way Shez also went above and beyond by quality control testing at least 4 packets of Tim Tams to ensure they were just right for me before sending them on. What a good friend. LOL! Thank you dear Shez for your thoughtfulness and putting together such a gorgeous gift. I Adore it all ((((o))))) Big hugs x
Speaking of gifts I have done the "bunny" shopping and have bought the hot cross buns....I refuse to have them at any other time as it makes it all the more special when you have them at Easter time. I know...cranky old lady but I don't care. I hate seeing them in the shops just after Christmas. Where has our sense of occassion gone???? Sorry I digress.
I have also put the my Easter mini on the stand and I must say it is cute and the bunnies look pleased too.
On the sewing front I seem to be stuck in "Bear" mode which I love. This little red work Ted is for a future project for Country Threads.
I have had to put the other little bears aside, just for a wee while to get this done and I can tell you there is much complaining and gossiping over the honey pot about it. I'll just have to stitch quicker won't I. Can't have a basket of disgruntled bears.
Have a lovely day everyone and if you are going away for Easter travel safe and enjoy the blessings of Easter with your nearest and dearest and I hope the bunny finds you.
Blessings Michelle xxx

    Your Easter mini looks gorgeous on the stand. It's a lovely display.
    You definitely must stitch quicker because I can't imagine what a basket full of disgruntled bears will do!!

  5. Such a lovely hanging from Shez. I was lucky enough to see it in person and knew you would like it. Your Easter mini is so cute. I agree with your about hot cross buns although I weakened on Monday and bought one for my lunch! I think I've done pretty well to go this long. I saw them in the shops on the day after Boxing Day. Disgusting! I've just got back from buying three packs for tomorrow! Can't wait! Hugs, Christine

  7. Happy Easter to you Michelle. I guess you were lucky to get 2 packets of tim tams from the sound of it. I love anything to do with the Night Before Christmas and the red work is lovely. Your Easter mini is very cute and I am still chuckling as I think of that basket of disgruntled bears.

  14. Hey Michelle! Right there with you about the hot cross buns coming out on New Years Day ... what the?!?! Like the year doesn't go by quick enough as it is, without retailers rushing us along ... EEK! Oh ... watch out for those disgruntled bears ... they are likely to get themselves into some mischief to get your attention back on to them. :0) Happy stitching and HOPPY Easter to you! :0) Bear Hugs!
