Gorgeous gifts from Fantastical Fiction February suggestion

Heather (organiser of the world famous Theme-a-licious SAL) very kindly chose my suggestion of a fantasy theme for February and had mentioned sending some goodies.  As senile dementia has pretty much set in these days (it's too often to be called a blonde moment, that's for sure!) I promptly forgot about it.  So imagine my excitement when a big, fat package dropped on the mat, and it wasn't my credit card bill!

Now in fairness, everything was wrapped up in pretty tissue paper but I was FAR too excited to take photos of them!  It was like Christmas all over again...

Here is a look at the whole package.


The lovely, lovely Six Stranded Sweets.  I love these threads and had the whole set a few years ago.  They have dwindled over time so these are VERY welcome.


3 pieces of very pretty fabric too.  The pink is just gorgeous, well they all are but I love, love, love the pink :)  And look at that...a piece of Sugar Maple Fabric too!!  Loved that fabric!


Lovely charts too.  I will definitely be stitching the unicorn one for my unicorn mad friend - probably next year though as I am doing Winter Unicorn for her this year.  


And more lovely charts.  The birthday fairies are great.  2 of them are already on my must stitch list and I have put a closeup of those below.  I love the June one as she is but the October one I think would look fabulous in Halloween colours.  What do you think???




Thank you Heather for such a lovely package and for leaving it long enough that I'd forgotten about it and therefore had a brilliant surprise.  It was one of those days that needed something nice to happen, and it did :)

What a great Fantasy themed prize! I think I have those monthly fairies too, I inherited them from my friend who gave up stitching, love the L&L design too, Fairy Godmother?

Wonderful package! I had that whole set of Six Strand Sweets years ago but sold them all when the temporary insanity arrived (deciding I'd never cross stitch again). The company is out of business now, I believe, so it's always fun to find the skeins somewhere : )

I am so pleased you liked the package!! I debated over including that pink, but I had the idea that you are not afraid of colour, so in it went. =)
