Feeling the love

Oh it's so grand to get mail.  I'm completely spoiled anymore.  It's not just bills that come in the mail.  It's mainly fabric or bee blocks.

In addition to bee blocks I'm now getting a few other items in the mail. 

Jenna  sent me a mug rug.  Oh gush!  
It's just lovely.  I took this photo and now it lives on my jewelry case in my bedroom.  
The colors are perfect.  It has a little Joel Dewberry in it {swoon}
And the stitching is perfect.

I also got my Sew Mama Sew Giveway winnings.  I won a handmade gift. 
I didn't realize how much more I adore this than supplies.

Look at this LOVELY hand-knitted shawl
made in New Zealand by Amber of What to Make Next?

International mail rocks my world! I heart my virtual friends.

My sister spoiled me this year.  She gave me her cast off i-Phone.  Oh darn!
This arrived this month.  I can only say I love my sister more than pie.

This is will be a a regular thing with me in the sewing room.  I can keep tabs on my twitter feed, listen to Pandora, AND I can have a tute up.  Oh how I love my sister!
{oh and play scrabble, listen to my favorite radio station KEXP oh yeah and rent things from my public library}

Last but not least,  I won a giveaway I entered on Rosey Little Things

I was able to spend a few dollars at Novica?

Not only did I get a rocking ring {YEAH} I got this entire package.  How fun it that!
