It's Christmas in January :-)

On this sunny but cold day the mailman delivered not one but two packages , the first I opened was this one from Melody containing this lovely star block for the Australian Block exchange .
I love the colors as well as the fabrics that Melody has chosen , it is gorgeous .Melody also enclosed a sweet little scissor fob with a cute little bear and two hand stamped labels , so cute !!Thanks so much Melody.
 Then I opened this package from Mary of Quilting Grandma blog , I had won this stocking from her but unfortunately Mary was quite sick and was unable to post this until this month , glad to hear she is doing better it was a rather hard road for her .
Mary made sure I was really pampered , inside this plush stocking was lots of chocolate to help with my constant craving for really good chocolate , then there was special coffee to enjoy with the chocolate while I had a pedicure and some sweet little stockings to wear after my special treatments . Oh and not to be forgotten is some wonderful fabrics and thread and a neat little ruler which she says is her favorite and I can understand why , it is a great size to take along to class .She also included a bell to ring in the new year ,she really did think of everything . Thanks so much Mary for this great package and allowing me to have Christmas in January :-)
 No sewing to report I have been dealing with a pile of shirts that needed ironing but no fear I didn't just stand there and iron ,I watched a wonderful video on art quilts , I am great at multi tasking ;-0 Enjoy your day and thanks for stopping by.
 PS. You really should check out this great giveaway Here at My sister made me do it . Ida is giving away a lot of really great prizes for her first giveaway , hurry on over .
 hugs Sheila
