It's the little things.....

...that make it all worthwhile.

 I have had the busiest of days and a poorly boy in tow too but I came home today to a little package. It  always seems odd to see my tape on packages I receive in the post. I wasn't expecting anything, so I was intrigued to see who it was from.

 Inside was a lovely hand written letter (somehow even more special) and a little bundle of gifts from a complete stranger or rather new virtual friend - a lovely blog follower.

The spotty packaging was lovely and so very thoughtful - gorgeous spots and gingham ribbon - a perfect combination.

and inside......

were two lovely handmade pin cushions.

 I won't go into all the detail of the letter but she very kindly made Sophie and I each the lovely pin cushions after following our sewing endeavours here on the blog - the kindest, loveliest gift to receive.

 And Sam wasn't left out - a little stripey bag of sweet treats - lucky boy!

So what a truly lovely thing to happen on such a busy, rush around day - well, any day really. There really are some very lovely people out there. So a huge thank you to Sarah who has given me permission to give her a little mention - you can find out about her fab workshops over on her website *here* and follow her on facebook *here*  

Thank you!
