Mail-Box Pleasures

I've been finding such wonderful goodies in my mailbox.                                      
Some beautiful thread I ordered from LadyShuttleMaker. MMmmmm such yummy colours.                         

My copy of Crazy Quilt Gatherings arrived!

MA of Magpies Mumblings was clearing out some stuff, and offered this book! I was first to request it!
It has patterns for edgings for knitting, crocheting, and tatting! Yahoo!  There are some patterns I'm itching to tat. Thank you, MA!!
My order of laces from NickiLee arrived. OMG they are gorgeous!

I can't wait to play with these!              
Orna had a little contest and I won! She sent me this wonderful bundle of threads in my choice of a green/gold mix! There are all sorts of threads, including metallic and netted threads in different shades and sizes. I'm looking forward to using these in my CQing.

Thank you so much, Orna!
What have you found in your mailbox?
Thanks for visiting.
Hugs from Suz


  1. The green threads reminded me of Robin Hood and Maid Marion!
    Fox : )

  2. Those are very yummy looking goodies!!!!

  3. Hi Fox. Was it because of Robin's green outfit? I don't think he'd be quite as flashy as my new thread bundle! Lucky me! Hugs

  4. They are, Karrieanne, and I'm just so blessed to receive them! I want to play with them all! Hugs
