Opening ceremony!

I was lucky enough to be Emily's partner in the recent Goodie Swap and these gorgeous items are what she sent me.  Am I happy ?  No I am ****** delighted, over the moon and grinning with joy - I am the cat with the cream!

I went over to my friend's house as she has been watching me make things for this swap and I opened my parcel over a good cup of tea!  I was secretly hoping that Emily was making gifts for me - I thought right colours check, the letter N check but then realised there are two other Ns involved in this swap - so sorry Naomi and Natalie - I was hoping you were not getting these little treasures!

The letter needlebook particularly stole my heart as soon as I saw it on Flickr - the detail is delightfull - check out that cute little stamp with pinked edges!  

The pincushion is adorable - a bug, rabbits and birds - such cuteness! 

Then the mug rug a zesty treat!
I love the colours, the textures and the quilting - I marvel at those straight lines Emily!  
Then the back is all plushy greeness or greeny plushness or possibly both! 
Totally gorgeous and I am so happy!

You may like the photos but they just do not do justice to any of the actual items!  I'm lost for words believe me...! 

Thank you Emily I cannot say how happy I am as I have been coveting these items since I saw them on flickr!  Sorry you others, you can't have these - they are mine!  All mine!  Hahaha! 

 And BTW thanks for the hot chocolate and choc they will go down very nicely - already had to defend them from my brood!
