Trade with Bluebird Lyn

If Lyn ever requests a trade with you, say yes as quick as you can. I've heard of Christmas in July, but I got Christmas in September. The package was charming, and I opened it with anticipation. The card that was on top was lovely as you can see, and I took a picture of the back too, as it is equally as pretty, and it doesn't say Hallmark, it says Koala, which to me is a bit exotic and interesting. It isn't often I receive a present from so far away.

The original swap was for fabric, the rest is a bonus. This adorable Funky Monkey fabric was my prize. It is cuter than I imagined and will be just perfect for my new great grandbaby due in December. Her daddy wants monkeys, and I will combine this with monkey embroidery.

These are new to me, but since they say paper bow tie on them, I imagine that they are for decorating Christmas packages. Very pretty.

I see a wallhanging in my future, as this is a vintage art quilt block. Isn't the fabric that came with it beautiful.

This is adorable. It is a wooden thread holder and makes me think that I'd better take up cross stitch again. It would be perfect for my threads. For now, it is just nice to look at and enjoy. I may make it into a little mini mobile for my sewing room.

I think that this is 3 or 4 gifts in one. Do you see the pretty brooch? Scissors are one of the things I like to collect, and I love pins. I need to start going to our local quilting group, and I think I would enjoy wearing it there, and telling everyone where it came from (Australia). This little case will tuck perfectly into my rolling cart, and what could be nicer than a little mini cutting board and 1/4 inch plus ruler. I may be the center of attention for awhile while everyone ooh's and aah's.

Thank you so much Lyn, this is most surely above and beyond, and very much appreciated.
