A Generous Gift

Last week I was lucky enough to be given a parcel of sewing stuff from my Aunt, who is a formidable seamstress and quilter. I thought I would share some pictures of the parcel I received, as it basically made my WEEK. 

Making an unboxing video did present itself as an idea, but as it transpires there were too many squeals of delight which may have alarmed some viewers. So, enjoy some lovely (quiet) pictures instead. There is so much useful stuff in here that I am already inwardly planning about half a dozen projects which can incorporate various bits.

All that remains to be said is a huge thank you to the sender – your generosity and wisdom are very much appreciated.
