What Were Waiting For Me...

Hi, I have just arrived to my mum's home yesterday, whew...
I still have fever (sometimes it's slight fever...), so I will visit some doctors.

Anyways, what were waiting for me when I arrived mum's house is, so many envelopes, some were puffy! :)
Of course I couldn't resit to open them soon I have found them, and I was so excited!!!
Please let me share them with you!

First of all, my dear friend Angela (no blog) have told me that she sent presents for me and for my son to my mum's home, and here they are!

Angela also knows that I love Pink (she also likes pink!), so she gathered pink goodies for me!
How sweet of her, they are SO lovely, truly lovely, I love everything she sent me!
Fabrics that she sent me are so pretty, she added so many laces and ribbons and pale pink and purple linen, rose soaps, chocolate, heart shaped hook! Oh my...
Thank you so much Angela!!!

But she added more than them!
She made me a so sweet pinkeep which I fell in love when she showed me in the e-mail last year!
This is from Ewe & Eye & Friends (EEF), it's so lovely, isn't it?!

The backing fabric she used is also so cute and perfect, which her sister sent her, I heard.
I'm so happy to have this with me now!
Thank you so much for your warm heart always, dear Angela!

She also sent some toys for my son!! Activity Fun Notebook and zebra's puppet, and chocolate and there was also Coca Cola's truck!!! Why the truck wasn't in the photo???
Of course he opened it sooner after he found it started play with it! :)

Thank you Angela, now he is remembering about your name and where you are from!
He is now saying Auntie Angela! ("Angela Obachan" in Japanese)

And here is some trade that I have done with some friends.
As you may know that I have opened Sale & Trade blog before (I will open it later again), and some people asked me to trade charts!

Sharon and I traded a chart and she asked me to send over dyed threads instead charts or pay.
And I love to correct over dyed threads which I can't easily to buy in Japan, so I said OK to trade with threads!
And Sharon kindly sent me so many beautiful threads!!! Look at them!
Lovely colours over dyed threads and some Vikki Clayton's silk threads!
Thank you so much, Sharon!
I really love them as I told you in the mail, thanks a lot!!

And here is from Melissa. Melissa and I also traded a chart, but she also kindly send me an extra chart which I wanted!
How sweet of you, Melissa! Thank you so much for your kindness!
I want to stitch it as soon as I can!

Thanks everyone for your kind heart towards me, I do really appreciate for them all!!!



By the way, here in Japan the tradition of "St. Valentine's day" is give chocolate from women to men (I don't like this tradition much...).

As always I bought chocolates for my husband and this year for my son, too!
Here is a chocolate for my husband with some message... :)

And here is for my sweetie!
Actually I just wanted this heart shaped tin can, LOL (sorry sweetie, but I know you also just want chocolates, lol)

I don't feel like stitching yet, though I started a few lines from last night not to fall asleep soon.
Just a little by little, it's getting be fun.
I'm going to stitch some lines from now, too! :)
I hope that motivation for stitching will be increase more and more!!

Take care and have a lovely day!
Thanks for visiting!
