Easter gifts from a new friend in Finland


My Secret Easter swap partner has sent my parcel through to me and it arrived today! it only took 3 days in the post all the way from Finland...

I eagerly unwrapped it, do you find that tape becomes so much stronger when you really want to get into something!
Or is it just that our fingers become so fumbly with excitement?
Well inside my parcel I found a very cute bunny, pot holder and some yummy chocolate and i was ecstatic.....


Imagine my surprise when I opened the cellophane bag and that cheeky rabbit had been busy as he had multiplied......!


2 fantastic pot holders
(which will never hold a pot in their lives, I would rather burn my fingers!!!)
and hidden between the bunnies was a lovely cross stitch pattern and threads and a lovely card from my new Finnish friend Satu
The fantastic yellow and lime green flower fabric is a Finnish design from Marimekko and the cross-stitch pattern is from Australian Homespun and Satu very kindly sent me some embroidery threads from her own stash...

The Chocolate has been stored away for a rainy day.... which judging by today's weather will be tomorrow! lol

Thank you so much Satu and I am absolutely thrilled, the craftsmanship is amazing you are very talented indeed and I am going to get 2 new hooks on the wall so that I can hang them up and enjoy them every day....

I notice most mums have posted about the mothers day gifts that they received, I received some beautiful flowers from my mum (she bought them for Daniel to give me) and a beautiful bunch from my best friend Joanne.... together they make a even more colourful display.
Jamie wrote a card from her and Daniel and Mr P was going out to get me something but I told him he already had.... as I had bought a few things already! (he he he)



I have been very busy crocheting and sewing (a new experience for me!) and once I have worked out what I am sending to my Secret Easter swap partner I will show you the rest....

I recently sent my Heart swap parcel but as usual I completely forgot to take photo's

Wishing you all a fab weekend
Take care

What great swap goodies! I love the bunny pot holders, but like you, I would have great difficulty holding a pot with those cuties.

Great swap goodies, love the bunnies, and I'm so glad to hear you're demanding your mojo to return. LOL!! I can't wait to see what you whip up. I have two little bloggy awards for you my friend.

I hope your weekend is fun and relaxing!!!
Love and Hugs to you girlie,

Just stumbled on your flower photos.....I needed that in this bleak time where I live.

OMG how gorgeous are those potholders!!! I am extremely jealous! I love Marimekko fabrics, I always look at them on ebay but don't quite have the courage to dive in with them but I think I might be inspired now.

Those pot holders are lovely, but you should really use them. Use them and love them.

Pretty things. :) I'd not want to use the pot holders either but I am getting better these days at using things inside of saving them for best.
