Don’t you just love getting a happy mail package through in the post?  Well I’ve been very lucky these past couple of weeks :-D

My dear friend and Buddette  Rosa, who lives in Canada, encouraged me and a few others to join in with Michelle of  The Raspberry Rabbits 2012 BOM named after her two beautiful rabbits “Harrington and Hannah”

Being a ‘bunny mum’ to 4bunnies plus bunny abuela to one other(DDs little Mila) how could I resist!

Anyhow, as a ‘carrot’ dangler Rosa sent me and a few other Buddettes a package of Canadian wool felt to make the first block.  Here is a picture of it with the card that came with it.

Next my dear friend and Buddette Cyn,who lives in sunny California, sent me the cutest crochet heart and friendship card, she is so thoughtful that she also sent a crochet heart for my DD (the all pink one below).

Aren’t they beautiful!  THANK YOU SO MUCH DEAR CYN!!

I also received a girlfriend Valentine’s Card from my dear friend Donna in Iowa. (Who also happens to be my very first e-pal of at least 13 years!)   It is beautiful but also funny.  Why can’t we buy these type of cards for our girlfriends here in the UK?   The wording is glittery though that doesn’t show in the photo below.

Now, as if I haven’t already received lots of goodies I also won a sponsored give away held last month by Ali of Very Berry Handmade and I won this beautiful bundle of fat quarters of Amy Butler’s New Lark collection from UK quilt shop Fabric with Love.   Aren’t they just GORGEOUS!!  Thank You Ali for organizing the give away I never dreamed I’d win, and Thank You Lorraine of Fabric with Love for the gorgeous fabric!  I LOVE THEM!!

I’m hoping to have something to post tomorrow for Rainbow Scrappy Saturday.  So I’d better go sew! LOL..
