Goodies Exchanged & Received

There are a couple of things I have received over the course of this last week ~ some expected and some not ~ all brilliant though.
First up is this wee pile of goodness ~ on Needlecraft Haven Clare is running a Four Seasons Exchange.  Angie (no blog) sent me this beaded handbag mirror, some DMC and some Easter bunnies.  Thanks so much Angie ~ I used to have an handbag mirror but lost it some time ago so now I have a gorgeous replacement. 
I stitched The Spring Scissor Keeper from The Drawn Thread Company for my partner Clare.  This was a lovely stitch and has been in my to do pile forever, so I am pleased to have a tick in the box against it now and the best part is that Clare is so happy with it.  I'm looking forward to participating in the other rounds of this exchange ~ hope nothing will get in the way of me completing all four seasons. 
You remember that I visited the Pins & Needles Exhibitions last week?  Well, I was lucky enough to be a winner from my raffle ticket ~ these were given upon making a purchase from the Just Quilting stall.  Isn't that painted tag just gorgeous?  These are the goodies that were within the cutest little hessian bag.  Needles, thread, tin, fabric, trim and DMC together with a useful laminated card ~ I'm using that as a bookmark now.
I'm looking forward to four days at home with my family, we have nothing major planned, just some housey jobs ~ hopefully the weather will be kind for the holiday weekend.
Have a Happy Easter ~ and don't eat too much chocolate.
