Joy in the mail!

Last Tuesday I received a note in the mail to say to pick up a parcel from the PO...so off I went.....they couldn't find the parcel and I was told to return later in the day.....so I did....no parcel....I was told to come back the next day......so I called in before work....still not here...mmmmm....so I called in after work...no still can't find it...finally the lady at the counter looked up the reference number and said "Oh...it was here 9.30 Tuesday morning"...."I will take a copy of the collection card and ring you when we find it, things are a bit hectic out the back!" I called in again Friday after work, no phone call, but I wanted to pick up another parcel and surprise!!! I was given the missing parcel and the new one!! Thank goodness as I knew it was from my post crossing friend Jessica in the Netherlands and I would be so upset if it got all the way to Australia and then it got lost in the local post office!! Jessica sends beautiful presents and this one is no different...
isn't this a beautiful box? This is the underneath...it is the same on the sides and top...

and this is what you see when you open the box....just so beautifully presented...I am trying to be strong and to wait for Christmas..but it is not easy!!! I have had a little touch!!

I have also has my Santa Sack Swap here for several weeks, and even thought I have shaken and felt and prodded (gently!) I have resisted opening...but I see I now can, so later today I will!! Yahoo!! My swap partner is Jeannette from New Zealand...

Jeannette knows I love purple....love the ribbon and the tiny pin cushion! I am off to open presents!

Happy sewing!
