Fun Mail Aussie Style

I received two fun surprises in the mail recently, and they both came from Australia. Blogging has brought me in contact with such nice people that I would never have otherwise met.
Susanne (www.reeesas.blogspot.com) is an amazing photographer, and she sent me a picture of three kangaroos that she took, as well as a beautiful card she made herself. Don't you wish you knew what these three are thinking? I decided that a kangaroo photo certainly needed a fabric frame with a kangaroo pouch to put the photo in. :>}
I put the card in the pouch in this photo. Isn't it pretty?
Jodie (www.vintagericrac.blogspot.com) designed this adorable pattern to make Monty and Pearl, hedgehogs extraordinaire. So far I've only made Pearl, and I haven't even given her the flower for her hair yet, but I will. Jodie made a kit that included everything I needed to make them - what a fun gift! Thanks, Suzanne and Jodie, and thanks to Blogger for making these long distance friendships possible.

I can hardly believe the weekend is over already. I hope you have a great week.

How neat to receive surprises in the mail! The kangaroo photo and fabric frame with a pocket for the card is quite lovely. That hedgehog is really cute too. It is great fun to get to know people from all over through blogging.

I'm glad you like it ! Meeting people but never actually meeting them is one of the best and worst things about blogging (does that make sense?)

So glad you received it. Your quilt and pocket are just right for it.
Now I am off to reply to your email hope it goes through.
I am a bit of a computer slacker at the moment.
