I never expected that when I mentioned I loved the shirts that Tania Ho had been making lately, that she would email me and offer to send me the patttern! She did- I was so touched by how thoughtful that was. When I received the pattern, it came with all this lovely stuff! A red printed bird tote and a bird silhouette that I can't wait to hang in my new kitchen window and 2 pieces of really pretty fabric. My my, Thank-you I like it all so much! I still think it is so funny how close our names are, and I only just discovered her great blog recently. Tania, watch the mail for a wee treat in thanks.
On another great mail day Claudia sent me these lovely things, some teas, ribbons fabric and a perfume sample plus the main item from the flickr "this that swap pool" - this great shirt. I am rather glad I managed to nab it, it's really nice and fits me very well despite being an XL. Sizes can be very different! An XL from Canada would fit 2 of me. I sent her the latest Mary Engelbriets home companion and some bits and bobs too. I want to wear the shirt but it suddenly got so hot I can barley move.
Thank-you Claudia! I hope the magazine was ok!
