Lunchtime Surprise

I sometimes pop home for lunch to get a break from work and today was well worth it, look what had arrived........it's from Julie. Julie and I had arranged a private swap, she sent me some great goodies. Sweets.....
Beautiful fabric and tape..... These Bobbin Bikinis, never heard of these before so here's the instructions for anyone else wondering what they're for.... and of course what we were really swapping..... Magazine!! This mag I was especially after because Annie Downs from Hatched and Patched has a project in it but it has other great projects too, lots to keep me busy!! Thank-you so much Julie, it was a fun swap!!
Pop on over to Julie's blog to see what I sent her.

It's so fun to get mailbox goddies. Brighten up the day. Have not seen that magazine before, so I have to look for it too. Love Annies patterns.

Wow - so exciting when a parcel arrives, Lucky you. Will you let me have a peak?

Julie said...

Jo - I had to laugh when I read the Bobbin Bikini directions and they say "Always remove the bobbin bikini before placing in your machine." Duh!! I am glad you enjoyed your package. I am still loving mine.

What a great idea designing a bobbin bikini. Never heard of it before. It sounds rather funny but I think it is a useful item. I wonder if it is stretchy enough for small spools.
