I got mail!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I went to the post office yesterday adn was so surprised when I got a key for something bigger than my box would hold. I was puzzled because I hadn't ordered anything and the swaps aren't due until later this month. I was SO EXCITED when I saw that the package was from Australia I did a little happy dance right there in the middle of the post office.

I got my PIF exchange from Lissa!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I went to the car and looked at it for a few minutes wanting to open it but again wanting to wait until I got home so I could take pictures of it when I did. I compromised. I opened the packaging and inside wrapped inside this lovely piece of fabric in exactly the tones of green that I have been looking for was this beautiful quilted bag, some yummy looking chocolate biscutes and a journal for designing my quilts. I started taking pictures so I could share with all of you and it really took quite a few because of the lighting in my house and the fact that my camera wants to work part time now that I want it to be a full time employee. Anyway, I finally got one I could use and then I got to open the quilted bag and inside I found these great items and I saw the inside of this little bag.
I was (and still am) so excited. All things I knew I needed to get for my quilting adventures but haven't yet. The cutest pencils and some scissors with a beaded charm holder with a little sewing machine charm.
Thank you Lissa so much for letting me play along in your PIF challenge and for making my day with this gift!!!!!!!!!!!!
I knew it would be something fun to do but had no idea how much it would brighten my day.
Now wouldn't someone else like to play too? You can still sign up on my PIF challenge post. Katherine and I are patiently waiting for 2 more people....

Oh you got some wonderful "fun mail". It's such a treat to get goodies by mail.

I see on your previous post you are crocheting. I'm just learning to crochet and I'm wondering if you would share the pattern for the yellow coaster. It looks like something I could try. Thanks much.
