Surprise...


Well the sunshine might be gone
but my day has been bright and happy!

oOo

Justine over at Justine's Cross Stitch has sent me the loveliest RAK :)

Following my Easter Egg Change disappointments,
- Yes, someone else has not received their goodies, but that's for an other post -
Justine has surprised me with some delightful gifts...

What a fantastic treat!

oOo

A beautiful handmade gift,
the most adorable little mouse ever,
finished as a perfect little cushion


A sweet Lizzie Kate chart
and some WDW threads!


And there is more,

pretty wooden pegs and candles.
They both smell heavenly

The parcel had a delicious scent when I first opened it, so exciting!!



Thank you so much Justine.

This was an absolute surprise and made my day.
I love all my gifts and keep admiring this little mouse!
Sending you big hugs xxx

oOo

 I will be back soon with some finishes
Happy stitching!
Mii

  15. What a wonderful RAK. I bet that was a lovely surprise to receive in the post.

    I hate people who don't follow through with exchanges. I was in a round robin once where one person ended up keeping the majority of pieces (it was a 6 person RR). Many stitching bloggers are probably familiar with the culprit too.

    1. OMG!! I'm so sorry to hear about this! It's shocking!!
      I know, I am well put off with exchanges for now.
      I'll stick to RAKs. It's always fun to make someone's day :)
      Have a fantastic day xxx

    1. I agree Sally!

      RAKs are definitely best... I'll stick to these from now on! Always a nice feeling to make someone happy for a little while :)
      Take care sweetie x
