Wonderful Gift FROM Arcadia!

It's been more than a week since the last time I posted!
Since my Internet connection was too weak and bad, I couldn't be online at all these few days...

Anyway, thank you so much everyone for lovely comments to my "Sunflower House", I've got 50 comments for the last post, I'm so surprised and I'd really appreciate for your warm hearts!

About a week ago, I've received a BIG parcel (I've never got that big box before!) from Arcadia from France!
It was like Christmas in August! Look at these wonderful presents she has sent me!!

Here are two pretty Tilda dolls that she made!!
I was truly overwhelmed that she sent me a pair of beautiful dolls, I'm sure she took much time and efforts to make such a lovely dolls, I was so touched by her generosity!!

Here are some close up photos of them.
They are so lovely, aren't they?!
My husband knows that I love Tilda dolls but also knows that I'm not good at sewing, so he was also surprised and touched by them.

And here is her handmade crochet bag for me!
I thought that she bought this for me because this is so beautifully made, but this is her crochet work! Unbelievable!
What a talented lady she is, she does also cross stitch, too!

Here are close up photos of the bag!
She added lovely accessories, too!

And here are many goodies!
Linens, French cross stitch kit, lace, Sajou's bobbins, initial tape, etc...

Also cross stitch chart, friendship magnets, memo pad and lovely message card from her!

And she also added so many toy cars for my little son!!
He was extremely excited seeing them, he has been playing with them everyday and has been sleeping with some of them!
We can't get much foreign toy cars in Japan, like Renault, Peugeot, Ford, Rover, Volks Wagen, Citroen, etc... he is SO happy as well as I am!
He soon learnt these car names, and tells me what car he has with him!
He also loves Mini which Carol has presented him before, and he knows who gave Mini to him is, so when he saw or play with Mini, he always talk about Carol (he calls, Aunt Carol!)!

Anyways, Thank you SO SO much Arcadia for your wonderful gift, I'm SO happy and was overwhelmed very much!
I don't know how I can tell you how much I was impressed by your thoughtful presents.
Thank you again sweet Arcadia, and sorry that I couldn't post this just soon after I received your parcel.

As for my stitching, I still have been resting and have been visiting a dentist, yet no stitching at all...
But I definitely will stitch little by little, because I'm a participant in HoE PS Exchange group (deadline : 20th of Sep.), and I have some BD gifts to make!!

I hope I will be able to show something about cross stitch soon!
Until then, take care and Happy Stitching!
