Package From Tasmania!!!

Well, here it is!! I was so excited to get this package. Roseanne from Tasmania sent me a sweet package for my birthday. I found inside this pretty purple wrapping. Here is what was inside! What is that furry thing?
Oh, TOO cute!! It is a little wombat! It is just precious, and nothing like our animals here.
Wow, a fantastic tea towel with some of the popular tourist sites in George Town, Tasmania. And to think not long ago I wasn't even sure where Tasmania was. No one is allowed to use this towel - it is for decorative purposes only. I love the penguins across the bottom. Do you have penguins there? Wow!!!!
This is a fantastic needle case for sewing machine needles. What a great way to keep them organized. Believe me, this is something I needed. It certainly beats my current organizational method of needles stuck in pincushions all over the place.
That isn't all! A super calendar for 2009. It has sights from Australia and great local information such as the school calendar, pension stuff, just things that give a taste of what life is like there.
Do you see the incredibly cute Tasmanian devil postcard? And there is a scenic postcard too. I forgot to take a photo of the lovely card Roseanne sent. I was so touched. And don't think I didn't save the packaging so that I have Roseanne's address now. Look out, Roseanne! Now I owe you one! Thank you so much for a fun package!!

To change the subject a bit, check out the pincushion pattern on Lynette Anderson's blog. I just LOVE the hen and beehive. Oh, I am drooling over this pattern. I will put that on my wish list for later. :-D - Lynette Anderson is a great designer. I think I will start talking her up to my local quilt store owners. (Well, by local I mean within an hour's drive.)

Take care everyone, and have a great weekend.
