It is a cold and dreary, rainy day here in Sunny Florida. Infact, it has not been very nice weather for about a week. People are really getting grumpy.

 

I was sitting in my corner crocheting, when the mailman rang the door bell. I thought that was nice, now I don’t have to run out to the box in the rain to get the mail. Well, he greets me with a big smile and tells me he has a package for me.

 

I am waiting for my Christmas cards, but they should not be in the size box he handed me, nor should it be so heavy.

 

Well, when I opened it, it was like looking into Santa’s Bag. It was never ending. There were 4 towels with crocheted handles. 1 for Christmas, Halloween, 4th of July and Valentine’s Day, each towel had a design that matched the holiday. I pulled out pamphlets, postcards and information on Kansas. A bottle of Kansas Bar-B-Que sauce, cherry and caramel candy. A wooden snowman, a beautiful Angel for my tree, Mr. and Mrs. Snowman with a sign that ways Tampa Guy and Doll, 2 beautiful potholders and a wash cloth (in blue) and the pretties Christmas cards.

 

I want to thank my FGM in Missouri for this box of beautiful things. I am over whelmed and I am now all read for a trip to see your beautiful state.

 

You have certainly brought some sunshine to my day.

I received two baby blankets in the mail today for my 2010 NICU afghan drive. There was no name, so I don't know if it's a lovely Fairy Godmother, or someone following the NICU thread who just forgot to include their name.

 

They are so lovely, so thank you whoever you are - you can see the picture of them in the thread - link is in my signature.

Went out this morning to the bank, to get some papers to get a new drivers license. You know, birth certificat, marriage license and such. New rule for drivers license in Florida. Anyway, we get there, and I forgot some papers I needed, so Dh got his, but I did not get mine. Have to go back to the DMV (UGH) tomorrow.

 

As we pulled up in the driveway, there was the mailman. So I got out to get the mail. He had a package for me. :cheeryipee:cheer

 

I cam in the house, opened the package and there was some beautiful ILTC in georgeous shades of blue. Along with a very nice note.

 

So thank you so much FGM in Casper, Wy for the beautiful yarn and I will be putting it to good use.:hug:hug:hug

Yippie! Today's mail made me smile! After having been sick since shortly after Christmas, today I was finally well enough to exit the house for a bit. We stopped by the post office to mail some letters and I had packages! One was from my Fairy godmother, thank you so much!

 

She sent a spectacular set of stationery items! Little cards, bigger cards, a little cute notepad, a pad of lined stationery, cute stickers, a fun pen, and postcards! Thank you so very much! :) I was most certainly not expecting to have a package! Thank you :)

 

I will be writing some penpals tonight and I'll use the green stationery paper! :manyheart

A few days ago I got a wonderful package from the Fairy Godmother (or Elf ;)) from Sherburne,NY. It was amazing! I got 5 balls of cotton thread in different colours - couldn't wait to use them and I made a butterfly for a bookmark already :). Then - 14 hooks!!!! Steel Boye hooks and bone hooks of different sizes. I also found about 70 colours of embroidery floss - I don't know when I can use it up, but it's just lovely! I plan next cross stitch projects, so it will be perfect for me. There were also floss bobbins and so wonderful angel key ring. Of course I could read warm, friendly note, too.

 

Thank you so much , Fairy Godmother - it is so wonderful gift. Thank you for your generosity and thinking of me! :hug:manyheart

I want to give a big thank you to the wonderful Fairy Godmother from Bellevue WA, that sent me the lovely bamboo yarn, tea and sticky notes. Love it all, i was so excited when i got it.

Thank you to the thoughtful Fairy Godmother in Delaware that sent me a post card with a nice view of downtown Wilmington, DE. It really made my day! I was having a pretty lousy day actually, and this brought a smile to my face and made me feel so special. It's also the one and only post card I have from Delaware =) Also, thank you for sharing a little bit about yourself on the post card as well. That was a great personal touch =)

I am sooooo crazy excited right now! I got my first RAOK in the mail today. It's so much more than I ever expected! I got 3 scanes of ILTY - which is awesome because we don't have Hobby Lobby!!! I can't wait to make something out of it! I got 2 scanes of High Sierra Ombre (color) and 1 scane of Antique White. It's soooo gorgeous! I also got 3 books! I read so fast this is so great! I also go stitch markers. I don't have any and I just started Ami so they are PERFECT!!! I also got a GORGEOUS handmade cowl. It's the most beautiful color and so soft. I've never owned something made out of such nice yarn! I have to say the stitching is GORGEOUS! I'm jealous of the talent. :)

 

So - thank you my Alabama Fairy Godmother - whoever you are!!

 

Oh, and your hand writing looks JUST like my sister Amy's! It's crazy!

 

I'm sooooo thankful :)

Thank you doesn't seem to be enough. There aren't words that can express how wonderful it was to open an unexpected package from a very special crochetier today.

Tomorrow is my birthday but I already got the best present ever!

Thank you Fairy Godmother for the beautiful turn of the century, wooden, crochet hook! It's gorgeous! I'm looking through my patterns now for the first special project to use it on. THANK YOU! :hug

Wow I'm so happy :cheer

A dear FGM sent me a parcel choc-a-block with goodies. See these pics

post-32920-135897503901_thumb.jpg

I must say it's been a rough few weeks with personal family problems and then I lost a 14 yr-old client at work on Friday 5th Feb (I'm sure he is in heaven now). So when I got home from work late yesterday and found this parcel that I wasn't expecting it really cheered me up but when I opened it and saw all the nice things inside including a bamboo crochet hook size K(6.5mm), a ball of yarn, a Winnie the Pooh tin which I love, some sweets, magazine, booklets, a short message on a postcard with a beautiful Seattle sunset, tea, coffee, noodles amongst other things and I love the homemade items especially the variagated pink.

 

Thank you so much FGM you really made my day
