Lucky me!

Woo hoo!  I received this afternoon my first package from Goodie Swap 2011!  Yippee! 

Naomi (from Nomes's brag-a-long) was the wonderful person creating for me and I could not be happier!  As swap mama, I knew who was creating for me.  Still, I did not want it to ruin the surprise.  So, I tried to avoid Naomi's blog or flickr activity for fear I got a peek.  Sadly, though, I think I hurt her feelings for not being more vocal and supportive.  Naomi, I am sorry to have put my surprise ahead of your happiness and I truly hope that you believe me when I say I LOVE WHAT YOU CREATED!  I am super-duper thrilled.  Thank you a million times over. 

Now, for the gorgeous photos!  Naomi sent a lovely package.  I really wish I had the fabric version of this wrapping paper!


 What's inside?!?!  What's inside!?!?  Well, this beautiful-ness...


Can you see the fab applique?  I love it.  I love that you can see the stitching on the back...Or can you?  It's hard to photograph white on white.



But wait!  There's more :)


Ummm....chocolatte.....  That will go down a treat!  Now look at this spectacular needle book.  I love the nooks and crannies.  It even came with the most fantastic little pair of scissors!  How thoughtful!  Naomi, I have a sewing bee weekend coming up and I can't wait to bring this little goodie along too!



Naomi, thank you.  Thank you so very much for all of your hard work.  I love the fabrics you used, the colors you choose and the thought you put into designing these pieces of happiness.  Thank you.

You are more than welcome hun...I had a blast making it....I understand now about the comments....it would be hard as swap mamma....knowing who's sending to you and trying to avoid them at all cost....mind you, I know people who aren't swap mamma's who do that to me anyway...lol My family for a start....but that's a whole 'nother story.....I'm glad you like your goodies. I designed the mug rug for you and ********** my other swap partner....I was pondering what to do on them, and had one of those light bulb moments and tah-dah, the linked hearts started the ball rolling, then to not waste the fabric out the middle of them, I cut the small hearts out....yes I'm a grinch when it comes to throwing out 'offcuts' lol

I wish I'd got more of the sewing case fabric now, the felt so nice and sewed up really well.

Hugs
Naomi

I haven't commented on this one either as I haven't seen it - love those hearts and what a dear little sewing case - great to take with you! Next time Cindy you will need to delegate commenting to someone else!
