Earlier this week, I found a mysterious and wonderful package in my mailbox! It was an odd shape, and it was all wrapped up in duck tape! I knew that I didn't have a fabric order still "out there"....( we ALL know when we are waiting for a fabric order to arrive!!)
Upon closer inspection inside the house, I saw the ROYAL MAIL sticker first... Can you see the Queen's profile? Then, on the bottom right-hand corner, it had a label saying it was from my friend , Amanda!!
|This overseas package came from Amanda, The Patchsmith !|
Well , now I began to squeal with like a little child getting ready to open up a Christmas present! But I slowed myself down, and decided to cut it open very carefully. I didn't want to cut into any fabric... just in case there was any kind of fabric in there.
|My treasures from the UK and Amanda|
How did Amanda know that I LOVE shortbread cookies?? ( I am not sharing these with anybody!!) I will be using this adorable tin with the Scottie dogs, in my sewing room, for fun storage!!

I looked this up on Wikipedia after Amanda told me she was going "to eat an ice cream cone with Flake ," out by the harbor....
|A 99 Flake can refer to an ice cream cone with a Cadbury Flake inserted in it;|
