With snow still on the ground and below zero temperatures, a knock on the door from Mr. Postie with a parcel all the way from Australia is the perfect tonic for an instant feeling of warmth and happiness!

Last week I heard from Fiona  that I was the lucky winner of her giveway celebrating her 3rd blogoversary and yesterday, only 1 week later, I was thrilled it find it had arrived.  Fiona had posted pictures of the giveaway gifts and they were all gorgeous but to actually see them for real is something else . . .

Matching pincushion, scissors in attached scissor pocket and needle case

all in beautiful co-ordinating fabrics in duck-egg blue, mustard yellow and terracotta 

burgundy check tea-towel with applique basket of pears

'Tis The Season' Christmas Stitchings book

Fiona's gifts are beautifully stitched and I'm really happy to be the proud owner of them.  The needlework trio will be displayed on my new cream shelves in the lounge, the applique tea-towel is going to be a wall~hanging in the kitchen and Tis The Season will be my first attempt at redwork and hopefully result in a finished quilt!

You can see Fiona's finished quilt here
warning ~ it's gorgeous!!!

Thank you so much Fiona for bringing some warmth to my day xxx
