Owl Goodies for Me

We hosted the Give a Hoot Owl Swap. By now all of our owl swap packages are flying around the world, just waiting to land at their intended destination. I was lucky enough to receive this owl package from Ngaire. It arrived the day before we left on vacation so I'm a bit slow posting a picture. Now that I'm home it's time to share my owl goodies. Ngaire sent an owl emery board, a wooden owl and an owl softie all tucked into an adorable owl gift bag. The owl softie is made from a sweater, so you know I was going to be in love with it! Thank you Ngaire for my owls, I love them!!!

Today I received a surprise package from my friend Val. It's fabulous! Val sent me these wonderful goodies for my birthday. Thank you so much Val! You spoiled me and I love everything! I'm wearing my neck cowl as I type and my ornament has been added to my YOE tree. The owl pincushion is next to my sewing machine awaiting my next sewing project and the bookmark will be used when I start my next book since I just finished reading Winter Garden. I set the napkins aside to use in the coming weeks. The paper owl box was filled with MardiGras beads so it was scooped up and claimed by Nature Girl.

Here's a closeup of the owl ornament and the owl pincushion. Aren't they cute?!
Val, Thank you so much! Your kindness and thoughtfulness means the world to me! THANK YOU my friend!!!
