undeserved kindness

A while ago I sent a piece of manky old oilcloth off my dining table to Sarah of Red Gingham. Sarah has blogged about it here.
I say manky...it was perfectly fine...once I cut round the iron mark....someone was ironing on the dining table....don't ask!! I was glad that it could be reused as I would have stored it away and never used it.
Returning from holiday I collected some parcels from the sorting office and got a very lovely surprise.
Too lovely. Sarah is very naughty...look what she sent me.....
fabric...and sweeties....(m's and m's as C calls them...they are gone!!!!)
cute kiddy fabric.....christmas fabric...red and white christmas fabric...perfect for me. Just my style. But Sarah knew that. Does anyone else sometimes think their blog friends know them better than their real life ones???!

I am going to have such fun making with these fabrics...now the holiday is over Christmas must begin!! I have some serious crafting to do....
I just love the bird decoration attached to the ribbon...love it!! Such a lovely touch to make a special present even more special...I may steal the idea for Christmas Gifts....

Sarah you are a star...I told you that you made me cry. I was totally overwhelmed. And I hope you get a warm fuzzy feeling knowing you made me very happy :)

Lovely fabrics Claire and I'm glad your spotty oilcloth found a new home .... I remember seeing that in one of your old posts and thought what a good idea ... my poor old pine table gets covered in pen marks, glitter and goodness knows what else from the littlies. BTW I get a good 7 hours kip a night ;-) Lala x

Wowser :) Right off to email sarah offering her some of me olde table cloth ;) What a beautiful, generous heartfelt parcel she has sent you, I adore the red star, one of my favourites at the moment :)

You must have that same feeling I have when I unwrapped my pretties, I haven't stopped glowing :)

Hugs to a good bloggy friend, and in my opinion you are right, no one knows me as well as yous lot ;)

Hugs again

Oh isn't Mary Poppins funny!! I wonder what her table cloth looks like?

Glad you will be able to put those fabrics to good use. I'll be having a very similar coloured Christmas as I have the other half of them.

You were so generous to me and I just wanted to do something for you to say thank you for your thoughtfulness.
