Favorite Things Friday

My favorite thing this week is surprise packages ... 

I recently received two packages in the mail .. one from Australia and one from Indiana.  

Shay (Australia) had offered to send me a template for making a tote bag, but when I got the package it was the fabric and directions for the tote bag!  Thanks Shay!  



And these cards were in a package from Katie (Indiana).  I had told her that the next time she comes to visit I wanted to make some cards and she just sent me some.  Isn't she great!!  Thanks Katie.  I still want to make cards when you come to visit ...


And then .. last Wednesday was staff appreciation day (the official name is professional administrators day).  Today, my boss brought in this...


You can't see it all but there are quilting magazines, fat quarters, candy bars .. forgive the quality of the pictures ...

Check out QIMP for more favorites...

I love getting surprises in the mail, as long as it doesn't involve me having to pay an outstanding invoice.
Wow your boss obviously knows what you like, what a great boss.

Yep- I love unexpected gifts and present mail too. There's nothiong like unwrapping something you got from the postie (even if you know what's inside because you ordered it !)

From what I hear you completely deserve the basket. You work so hard and do so many things for other people . Im so glad you got a surprise and a reminderthat you're appreciated.
