When I was sick in bed a couple of weeks ago the postman left this gorgeous parcel for me.
I had no idea who it was from as I wasn't expecting anything from anyone.

When I opened it was a gorgeous RAK (random act of kindness) present from Carole.

I had joined Maree's RAK swap not expecting to get anything so gorgeous from anyone.

Carole sent me a lovely mug and teaspoon in a beautiful mug bag.
Just perfect to out with me.

I also received these 2 gorgeous pin cushions, they are wonderful.

Lastly there was a lovely little photo frame and 2 memo holders.

Thank you so much Carole for the presents, they certainly brightened up my day.

Thank you Maree for organising this swap.

A few days later the postman left another parcel.
Now who was this from?? I had no idea.

It was an absolutely gorgeous bag from Pat of Narromine.

Pat was on holidays on the Gold Coast earlier in the year and I drove her to Cleveland to met the Gum Nut Ladies and a group of SE Qld bloggers.

Pat sent me this bag as a thank you for driving her.

It is her version of Anni's "No Place like Home" bag, made from Moda "Roman Holiday" fabrics.

When Lyn and Maree came over for a day's sewing a few weeks ago Lyn gave us both a present.
It was this cute little bag just perfect for emboidery thread and scissors and a small pin cushion.

Seems the postie will need a bigger bag when he comes to your place.
