I Love My Postman!

Having spent yesteday chasing a parcel that the post office had failed to deliver on Tuesday they finally re-delivered it this morning. It was my Christmas in July exchange from Johanna. A lovely stiched ornie, some Polstitches Rippling Rosebud thread, some pretty candles and yummt chocy.

Thank you very much Jo, it is all lovely and I feel very spoilt.

However, this wasn't the only treat the postman bought. There was another parcel with a post stamp from DMC! Hubby asked what I'd been ordering now and I honestly replied "nothing!" It was very exciting. It turns out that I had won the spring DMC/Cross Stitcher competition and the envlope was stuffed with four charts/kits.

There's a gardening bag kit and an orchid kit (bottom two shown) and then two charts by Kate Knight (Timless and Lacy Flowers). I've been smiling all day, it was such a suprise. I don't think they are charts I would have chosen, but I'm sure I will enjoy them. I officially have unplanned for stash for the first time. I usually buy things and do them.

Anyway, off to finish the July Juggy Bug square now, before August is issued tomorrow.
