I've had such lovely things arrive in the mail lately.
First was a little package from Fox from her thread give-away. Not only was there the promised thread, but also a tatted motif and a little bag of findings. The motif is so bright and cheerful. The photo doesn't do justice to the beads.
Next was a package from Marie. The card alone is a nice present, with lots of little tatted bits in lots of different thread. I can tell this took some time.
But even better was the real gift, a Mary Konior doily. How wonderful!
Finally, in a really large envelope, came a gift I gave myself. More on that later.
