unexpected gifts....

Last week sometime my friend Jen who blogs here, made a fabulous cape for one of her boys! Her blogging of this coincided nicely with 'Master M' bringing home this terms topic homework, what should be on there but make a costume for a prince or princess.....


I tweeted Jen and asked where she got the pattern and being the kind gal she is she not only photocopied the pattern for me but sent me the pattern on pattern paper too! 


I was so surprised when I opened my package that she had also included these lovely goodies too:

There was a yummy lavender bag, hair clips for 'Little Miss H' and a crayon roll too! As I'm sure you can imagine I'm now only left with a lavender bag!!!!


This last couple of days has also seen me piece my 1st Swoon block:
