Thank you so much!

I'm not normally keen on the door bell going at 8.20am, but I was expecting a parcel from Amazon, so opened the door to the postie thinking that some books I'd ordered for my course had come. I looked at the box he held, and thought it was rather an odd shape for an Amazon package ... and that's because it wasn't from Amazon, it was from Michelle! I'd won the drawing on her Cozy Egg blog for an assortment of DMC floss, and this was it! I was rather taken aback, because it wasn't a small box... and it was stuffed with all this...


And all neatly numbered and put in floss away bags! I'm going to have such a great time kitting up projects for next year, confident that I'm unlikely to need to buy floss for a while :o)

Michelle, I'm .. well, overwhelmed isn't too strong a word to use about your generosity. I'd like to say a big thank you - you've really brightened my spirits up. I love the stitching community, everyone is so willing to share their expertise, their knowledge, their time - and their stash! :o)

So glad you got a great surprise with the package! Your photo does a much better job of showing the pile than mine did - so I'm glad the amount was a welcome surprise (even if it was early in the morning!). Enjoy!!
