Each gift was wrapped in beautiful blue and white fabric, that will go into the stash for my blue quilt (which I will make one day … cough).
Inside the little blue parcels were …
… the raspberry handbag spookily destined to go with the raspberry hat, (and it does, beautifully), a lovely rustic bread knife to match my rustic house, and a decidedly non-rustic purple (Sueeeus says it’s blue but it changed hues somewhere over the Pacific cos it is most definitely purple in this hemisphere) spatula that has fast become my favourite kitchen utensil. Heavy, double ended, and with a pleasing grip. And in the last fabric wrapped package, was a selection of quilting fabrics, in pinks and browns to go into the stash for my pink and brown quilt (which I will make one day … cough). I liked that little quirk though; fabric wrapped in fabric. Oh look I used a semi colon. How pretentious.
