Thank you Cathy!

Christmas came early in Auckland today - I got a wonderful parcel from Cathy for the end of the Adopt-a-Stitcher exchange.

There were two parcels in the envelope and I opened the little one first. And inside was this gorgeous ornament. It's so beautifully done and I love it. The stitching and ruched ribbon is beautiful (and you might recognise it from the mystery ornament on Cathy's blog a wee while ago!)


That would have been lovely enough, but I opened the other parcel to find this!


The Misty Morning Vineyard chart (which has been next on my wishlist of Chatelaine mandalas for ages....) and Mimi's Tape Measure kit (which may not last very long - I can see it being made up as soon as I get a chance!) And the cutest kangaroo ornament...


Thank you so much Cathy! I've been so lucky to have you as my adopter for this exchange and I really appreciate everything!

P.S. A piccie of my monthly CHS SAL with Karen to come tomorrow - I hope you'll agree I had to say thank you to Cathy today!
