Travelling box and a PIF parcel

Hello friends

I've been very spoilt this month with a visit from the travelling box and also receiving a Pay It Forward parcel from Laura 

Here are my picks from the travelling box 

Rachel made the beautiful bookmark, Laura made the mouse and pencil ami's.The  super cute hedgehog brooch was made by Teresa and Steph O made the grey glittery head warmer. The biscornu was in a bag of bits made by Steph S along with the keyring and covered buttons. I'm going to make the buttons into badges for my bag. 

My last minute pick was this hair tie made by Cucki. I think it will make a fab brooch so I'm planning to pop a brooch back on it at some point. 

Did anyone else end up at the sewing machine at 11.30pm the night before world book day? My lovely 4 year old decided she should go as Mr Tod the fox from the Beatrix Potter stories.  Fortunately we already had the mask as lovely boy went as fantastic Mr Fox a couple of years ago. So cue me scouring charity shops for a jacket and waistcoat to alter and making a cravat and tail...any hoo here's DS as Mr Tod. 

Finally ages ago Laura did a pay it forward post on Facebook to send out 5 surprises to the first 5 commenter's on her post. Long story short, I did and this is what she sent me...

A lovely shawl, my favourite Turkish delight a cute felt card and a new brooch to add to my collection. Here's a close up of the button brooch and the cupcake card. 

So the postie has brought me lots of loveliness lately so I need to get on with finishing the winter swap with Steph and making a leaving present for my friend Caroline who works in the office downstairs from mine. She's craft mad too so I've found a lovely stitchy freebie and have a couple of other things planned too.

Hope you had a great weekend, I did, the  Formula 1 is back!
