Happy mail and Pay it forward...

It's always a bit exciting when you get one of those Australia Post cards to tell you there's a parcel at the post office - and even more exciting when you're not expecting it - the anticipation is delicious and made even more unbearable when the card says you have to wait until after off I go to the post office, arriving at 2pm ON THE, except for one time when it was a registered letter from my doctor telling me there's "some areas of concern" (which turned out to be no concern at all....bastards!!) I've always loved whatever the 'mystery' parcel brings....and I have to say, this was no exception....

It came all the way from Scotland, home of my birth, and incorporated linen, hand stitching, Liberty, a postcard which had a 'hieland coo' and Edinburgh Rock....such bliss in a package!

So why did I receive this bounty??  Many moons ago I answered a 'Pay it forward' from the very talented Catherine at Knotted Cotton - and I promptly forgot about it - but here it is.  Catherine sent me the most gorgeous pouch - and as mentioned above, with all the things I love.

Thank you so much Catherine - it's perfect -  I love the blogging community, so generous, and of course, I get to pass the baton on..

So, without further ado, the first 3 to leave a comment on this post will receive something hand-made by me within the next 12 months.  The only rule is that if you are one of the first 3, then you agree to pay it forward to 3 others when your turn comes.

So, if you're willing....good luck to you....
