Not only did she send me a selection of 12 of the beautiful Valdani 3 strand thread she uses (we can't buy them in the UK-
look at these stunning variegated colours, the thread is so soft too);
Alongside all this were some French needles (ils ne sont pas très chic!). Also, Thread Heaven, thread conditioner. Now - this is something I would never have bought myself , but I have to say it's totally brilliant and has made such a difference to my stitching. I'm hooked and will be searching out more in the UK!
Shell has just been featured in 'Quiltmaker's' 100 Blocks collector's edition, which she included for me - here she is on page 25 with her lovely 'Carrot Run' applique block. I'm so proud and happy for her success!
My parcel was completed with Raspberry Rabbit pens;
I'm loving these, they're so cute with their Raspberry bunny logo.Finally, there were some of Shell's signature yummy raspberry choccies (OK, there were more of these but I had already nommed them by the time I took the photos!) and a most beautiful card.
You will imagine how thrilled and delighted I was with these fab gifts. The threads alone are simply wonderful, I can't wait to start using them.
Thank you so much for this parcel of happiness Shell! I feel so lucky and grateful.
I'd like to pass on my good feelings by wishing everyone a really 'Lovely Day'!
One of my favourite feel good songs of all time!x
