A parcel in the post and other things.

Today I received this lovely parcel of goodies from Elizabeth as part of the swap on the Country Bumpkin Forum.  There is gorgeous fabric, beads, ribbons and buttons to play with.

Visit Elizabeth's blog here:

This project will have to wait for a while as I have so many things on the go at present.

I have added some feathers to the mask.  The photo is not too good but I
am fairly pleased with progress so far.

Tomorrow I will do the backing and see how it looks.

This wheat bag is a gift for my middle daughter.

I have been quite productive the last few days which of course means that the housework is not being done!!

Hey Dianne, you didn't take a pic of all those goodies in the bag did you? It is so nice to get surprises isn't it!!Mask looks ineresting!

Dian, what lovely fabrics and beads in your parcel. Elizabeth has given you something wonderful to work with, great stuff. I like the wheat bag, much more glamorous than my old daggy cotton one!!!

The mask is looking great Dianne.
And the wheat bag looks much better than my daggy red corduroy one too. So pretty. Maybe I should take some inspiration from you and treat myself to something better!

As for housework, you know it waits for you!!
