I'm a very lucky woman. I have two swap partners,
which means I've to make two surprise gifts but I also will receive two surprise gifts!!
And today this was in the mail..Wendy sent me a beautiful broche
made from gorgeous fabrics and tiny beads in the middle.
I love it and I think it looks great on my jean jacket..thank you Wendy!

for me from my swap partner Wendy
She also sent me these two lovely fat quarters.

And today must be realy my lucky day!
This beautiful package came also in the mail....
Nicolette had a little game going on on her blog.
She showed a box filled with hexagons and asked to guess the right amount.
And guess what!! I was closest.

giveaway gift from Nicolette
This package contains all the materials you need
to make a lovely pincushion and a needlebook.
There is also a pattern for a wrist pincushion included.
And see the postcard with the polkadot boot... so cute!
And there's more good news...
