Goodies in the Mail!

First of all, please forgive the quality of the photos. My good camera has a dead battery and I couldn't wait to post this so I took the photos with my iphone.

My sweet friend, Cyndi, from the blog Bluebird Swing, read about my Rowenta dying and since she got two new irons for Christmas she graciously sent me one of them. And it's another Rowenta! I love it! She is such a sweetheart. Lots of good things and friends can come from cyberspace.

Yesterday, I checked the mail and I found a large envelope on my porch. I couldn't for the life of me think of what it could be. I hadn't ordered anything. I knew Cyndi was sending me an iron, but I was pretty sure the iron wouldn't fit in an envelope, no matter how large. I had completely forgotten that I was to receive mug rugs from the Mug Rug Swap. I was so excited about getting mine made AND mailed on time that I completely forgot that I would be getting some too.

Anyway, Nicke (don't know if she has a blog yet) made me two adorable mug rugs! I love them so much. I love the "toaster" saying on the one and I love owls. I didn't make any specifications about my likes when I signed up for the swap. However, she really got my tastes right. She sent me some teas and favorite things that she puts in her mugs. Thank you, Nicke, so much!

What a great day this has been because of these two lovely ladies and of course the mail man. I am off to iron freshly laundered fabric with my new Rowenta.

Happy Sewing,Ironing or whatever you are doing today!
