I won an iron...and I love it!

True to her word, after offering an iron as the prize on her blog, the wonderful Sharon, sent me an iron! Luckily for me, it's the type of iron that stitchers like to use....

.
..isn't that cute?

She also sent me the most wonderful package brimming with goodies, all individually wrapped...



...it was like Christmas opening each parcel...



....such an array of wonderful things! I love the 'No Ironing" wall hanging (which is now hanging above my tumble dryer) and if you look closely you'll see that she even found the cutest iron motif  fabric. The iron design was by Gaynor from Stitchers Anon, who designed it especially for Sharon...so  another thank you, this time to Gaynor! I love receiving handmade gifts, and this is only the second time that I have ever had someone stitch me something! I really appreciate it as I know how busy you were Sharon, and I know the amount of time it takes to make something like this. 

So what else was in the package, well there was some wonderful over-dyed threads....and can you believe that I have never stitched with  these? Well, that is all about to change. I think this may be like the opening of Pandora's box......I can see a new obsession starting here!There's also a fat quarter of pink polka dot iron fabric, which I will certainly make good use of! Some wonderful ' handmade with love' labels, counting pins, lavender tissues (one of my favourite fragrances!) , a spool of the most gorgeous cream lace edging,  a cute frog tape measure, the cutest little tea-light pail, which for some reason isn't in the picture and some wonderful sweets....which didn't last long!

So, a big THANK YOU to Sharon for such a beautiful prize package...you're wonderful, I love it all!

I'm off now to check out all those wonderful over-dyed threads...I can now understand why everyone is raving about them...yes, I'm a convert!

Until next time...happy stitching!

So pleased that you liked everything. I hope you don't mind, I have borrowed your photo of it all as I forgot to take one - I only photographed the wall hanging.
