Christmas in July

A few weeks ago I signed up to take part in my first ever gift exchange at Craftaholics Anonymous. I was very nervous, yet excited, about what to send and what I would receive. Would what I sent be too small?, Would the person I sent it to like it? .
I sent my package off by the cutoff date and a couple of days later my surprise arrived in the mail - all the way from Eagle Mountain (rather appropriate I think for someone with a surname of Eagleson), just south of Salt Lake City, Utah. The ability of blogs etc to bring together people from all over the world and eliminate actual distances, time zones etc amazes me.
Inside was some fabulous reversible bunting with 'Happy Birthday' on one side and 'Celebrate' on the other. We have had a couple of birthdays since then and mid year Christmas is coming up this month so it has been, and will be, well used pretty much from the moment it arrived.
A big thank you to Jessica for her wonderful gift.
Now to hope mine is as well received......

Being gloomy winter over here, it is very hard to show these off to thier best.

Your gift was well received! All the way in Canada. I have yet to take pictures in my darling apron, and the bird is already thoroughly slobbered on, but will get to it soon. Thanks so much!
