The Mailman made it !

We have had so much snow and living on a main street with no curb access or proper sidewalks out front, caused the mailman to stop delivery. Well he made it today with lots of goodies and a neighbor's mail ! I still cannot get out, as the lane is a solid sheet of ice and I am not going to tempt it. Also in the mail is a notice to pick up a letter at the post office, apparently they wouldn't deliver it on the 29th.
First off I got my Kelmscott Initial Needle Minder. I find that having the initial "I" it is not so easy to find something I like or that resembles an I, sometimes looking more like a J. When I saw this I knew I just had to have it and it is perfect. It is laying on some 30ct. Baby's Breath Weeks linen. I had ordered some fabric from Mary Kathryn and when she couldn't get it I trusted her to replace it with another color and she did a terrific job, I love it !

Next I received a package from Anna and she spoiled me. I received one of her gingerbread men and absolutely love him. There is a floss keeper, 32 ct. Green Tea Lakeside Linens, Barbara Ana Designs Santa Paws Biscornu and Plum Street Samplers, My Pretties, I have been wanting these patterns for some time now.

Oops the delicious chocolate never made it to the photo shoot ! Thank you so much Anna.
I also received some charts I ordered and forgot about :) Home Coming Sampler by The Sampler House; Ode to Snow by The Trilogy and Pam's Ornaments by Chen Designs.
I'm still waiting for my parcel to arrive from Stitches 'n Things, I hope it somes soon. I'll not mention the bills that also came in today's mail :(

Here in the States they say that neither wind nor rain nor sleet or snow can stop the mail, lol ;)

You definately received some sweet goodies in yours!
