I Need Windscreen Wipers For My Eyes...

I love to participate in Once A Season Swap, and this morning I have received a gorgeous parcel of goodies from my very talented & thoughtful blogging friend Shez.
(I suspect she's also a mind-reader, or got inside info about me from somewhere!)

Oh my, Shez I really just love everything, I can't tell you how touched I am to have received such a package of thoughtfulness. Taking the brown paper packaging off to reveal the gift wrapping was exciting, then undoing the pink wrapping had me choking up & wiping my eyes... 


and... Oh My Goodness what was inside....
Shez has made this stunning cushion, I adore the design & Shez's stitching is so dainty & perfect. And the colour shading is amazing...


Shez entered this cushion in a CWA exhibition and won 1st prize for it, so I'm very thrilled to own it now!


Also in the package was other goodies of a great thread spool holder/thread catcher that can fold flat, 4 very cute buttons (how did you know I am a button-lover Shez?!)some very pretty rosebud-shaped soaps, hand lotion, & some yummy choccy wafer biscuits. The wattle design card is made by Chookyblue, who makes cards from her own wonderful photos.

I love girly, pink & buttons... & it's all in this great parcel!!
Thank you Shez for bringing Spring to me in a new way this year, and for such tear-inducing thoughtfulness...
