I Won, I won, I won!!!!!!

Look what I received in the mail today.  A package all the way from Wales from Pam at A New Life in Wales!!
Look at all the goodies.  The picture doesn't do the items justice.  Today is very overcast and dull (8degreesC) and this picture is taken on my bed!

First of all there is a very handy craft bag that is just the right size for a knitting project.

Then so many other things.  First of all a very pretty waist apron that my GD claimed as soon as she saw it.  She loves to bake and cook and is at present saving for a mixmaster like grandmas.
Also included was the cutest little pincushion, a rainbow wheel of quilting pins, a package of 5 different ribbons, some pink satin cord, 42-21/2" Moda squares-love the colours from pale grey to black,  a selection of squares from 'Stash of Pam' (I think), a selection of templates, Angel in a Heart Garland pattern, modern dresdens made easy instructions and a bookmark, phew!!!!!
What an amazing giveaway, and what's even more amazing is that it all fit inside a 13x8 envelope!!!
Thank you so much Pam for a wonderful giveaway. 
Oh, by the way, you have a very unusual address Pam, if I didn't read your blog I would never know that the package came all the way from Wales!

Bye for now.

Visitors for my birthday!!!

Today is my birthday and Cooper (and GD1) came to visit this morning.  He's sure grown a lot and he's only 4 months old!

We went out for supper for a fabulous seafood feast.  About 10 minutes after we got home this is what was wandering around on the front yard.  A bobcat!!!  

I hope he finds his way home back to Fish Creek Park and doesn't come visiting again!!
