MAIL CALL!!

Friday afternoon the snow was still falling, and it looked like this:


It was so dull and grey, it looks as though these are black and white photos.










DH came back from town, and brought the mail! Two big envelopes. I couldn't wait to rip into them and discover what treasures were hiding within.
 This wonderful package of goodies came to me from Bsotf! Fabrics, wired ribbons, satin ribbons, and  2 Workbasket Magazines!! I've never seen a Workbasket before, and now I have two! And they each have tatting patterns!! How neat is that? Thanks so much, Bsotf, I love it all!









"Tatted Flurries" is Sharon Briggs' new book, and my copy arrived today. Yay!
I love snowflakes!
I see lots of tatting in my future........it'll be hard to choose which one to try first!

Aren't they gorgeous?







Thanks for visiting.
Hugs from Suz

  2. Ohhh, nice delivery!!! I am not so excited about the fact that your photo has moved indoors and there is a definite chill in the snowy environment...

    Enjoy your new reading material! That snowflake book is very enticing!

  6. I'm with you, Fox! I could wait until Christmas Eve for the snowy white stuff, and then have it all melted on Boxing Day.......if only.....but that's not weather in Ontario, is it? sigh.
    I'm looking forward to tatting through my new book! That's the kind of snow I like best! Hugs

  7. Ah, Judy, it does look magical, I agree, and when the sun shines just right, it sparkles like glitter. But the cold, wet feet, and the shovelling, and shovelling....and shovelling....I tell you, 3 years ago when we had over 10 feet of snow....I thought the shovelling was going to do me in.....
    The goodies make up for the snow........Hugs

  8. Oh, yeah, Bsotf! Snowflakes can lead to snowpeople for sure! I might just build one or two! You've got my head whirling with possibilities from all those goodies you sent me! I'll have to have a good think on just what to make. Thanks again! Hugs

  10. Hi Jill! I admit to liking snow all glittery on the trees, and to crunching underfoot, even to making a snowman, or the whoosh beneath a toboggan rushing down a hill, but shovelling the stuff? Well, that's another matter all together. So, shall I send you my snow?
    It is a lovely parcel, and I look forward to having fun playing with the components. Hugs

    Hugs
