The fabulous mini I was sent in the IG Mini Swap (catch-up post)

I am finally having some time to catch up on blogging and here's the long over due blog post about the fabulous mini I received in the IG Mini Swap. Apologies for the delay Suzie!

Having waited, what felt like forever, for the mini I made to arrive in Australia, there was suddenly a note in the letter box about a parcel for me. It had to be picked up at the local delivery office, as the UK customs thought I should pay a bit for the pleasure of receiving a gift.





IT WAS SO WORTH THE WAIT!!!
I am one lucky lady!!! 

The intriguing and fabulous ribbon star block was popping up in my Instagram feed, but it was either green or in black/white so I didn't think it was for me. Someone was being a bit sneaky….




I had to retake the photo three times as I forgot to add all the extras… The red beaded bookmark was gorgeous on the Etsy site when I looked to vote for my favourite; it is even better in real life!  There was also a bobbin box, which is perfect, as I recently had a delivery of 25 bobbins without a case. Add to that the Christmas ornament, lovely coloured ribbons and buttons, plus a lip balm; I do love red, white and blue. Thanks also for the lovely letter to me and the thoughtful gift for my Elsa crazy daughter. You did a brilliant job in stalking me!

Even the back is spot on with sailing boats and really showing off the quilting. 




Thanks also for adding the left over sailing boat fabric! The mug rug will always be mine, unless one of my Nina friends steals it… Perfect colours! No need to worry about tea stains being visible. 

I am so so grateful for all effort you put into this!!

It's such a generous, well thought through and gorgeous package. 
THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU ever so much Suzie.

Well I wouldn't know which way round to hang that one! Both sides are great.
