treats

treats in the mail are the best.
unexpected treats in the mail rock.
unexpected treats in the mail that involve lots of Liberty fabric just about knock ya socks off.

Liberty treats from Jo  treats

I’d spied this cutie on Jo’s blog a few days ago and thought , huh, lucky duck who is getting gifted that! I’ve been watching the triple zips pop up around blogland & had been thinking I need to jump on that band wagon & make myself one of those, well now I don’t need to!  Perfect in every way from the pretty print, to the perfect zip colour selection &  right down to the grey striped linen lining (which you’ll need to hop over to Jo’s pics to see :) )

Tucked inside all those zips when I unwrapped it were fabricy treats of the Liberty variety. Squee! Lovin’ the new season prettiness &  then…… check out the cutest pincushion ever. Those are 1/2 inch squares people! Extreme mini patchwork. Treasure indeed.

Jo, you are the sweetest. I feel very spoilt & very lucky. Thank you xxx

Wow! those are great presents you received. I love the pincushion with the tiny patchwork. I just did some patchwork using one inch squares, now I have to try 1/2 inch. Lovely

It doesn’t matter how old I get, or how much of it ultimately turns out to be bills and ads, I get giddy about the mail everyday because of the possibility of things like these.

What a lovely thing to find in your mailbox!

Wow, arent you lucky? I definitely ‘need’ one now too!!Bit scared of the triple zippers though – may have to make a mini hex pouch instead – have been coverting them too!

What a fab gift, the colours are so pretty……..I’ve been eyeing those triple zippers too……….would love to have a go at sewing a triple zipper pouch……..they look a little scary though.
