Some excitement arrives in the mail!!!!

Greetings dear friends and blogging buddies! Yesterday there was a knock at the door and I was pleasantly greeted with a package from the mailman. Ok, the package wasn't really from the mailman ,but rather he delivered it. The package was from dear sweet Edgar! Some time back I had won a giveaway from him and yesterday it arrived!
I ran and got the scissors ( but walked slowly once I had them ;) ) the opened it up. Oh, the anticipation was boiling....

I opened the little package in purple on top. Inside were two patterns; Night and Day from Little House Needleworks, and Forest Snowfall from Country Cottage Needleworks. Now I have many Little House patterns , but this is my first CCN pattern and I will really enjoy stitching it!
Also there were three skeins of silk from Crescent Colours and a pack of John James needles. Also in the box was the little box of Sees chocolates. I love Sees and have not had any in quite a while.

Next came the wonderful box with the stitching on top. I just love sheep and Edgar picked a great design. I cannot believe how perfecto his stitching is!

Here's a peek at the fabric on the inside. The lid is lined as well as is the bottom.

Inside the box was nestled this lovely flower frog in a wonderful little gold bag.

One of my grandmothers had a frog just like this . I will think of her when I use it. It will serve a dual purpose. It will hold scissors and then it will hold those sweet little wild violets this Spring that pop up all over the yard.

Thank you so much Edgar , for everything . I just love it all! Oh... half the candy disappeared while stitching on Night and Day last night. I couldn't help myself!

That's it for today folks! I just bet I'll have something posted soon to show my progress on my projects! Thanks for stopping by today and I hope to see you again real soon!

'til next time,
