Happy Day and Happy Mail!

Yesterday was a Happy Day indeed!
Our little princess Sofie turned 1 year old!
(although I'm not really sure how that is possible
because I haven't aged a bit since she was born :)
We spent a wonderful day at Disneyland
to celebrate with her Mommy, brothers,
Auntie, cousins and Nana (of course)
She's going to have a fabulous birthday party
coming up in the next few weeks.

And as for the Happy Mail.....
 I received this super fun and colorful mug rug
from my swap partner "Cass the Coolest"
all the way from Australia!
Thanks so much Cass! I love it!!!
And if that wasn't enough,
today I received some beautiful linens
that I ordered from Crazy Annie's Stitchin.
She was having an awesome sale
so I got these at 35% off!
( I strive to never pay full price for anything!)
Also my wonderful hubby bought me
a walking foot for my sewing machine for Mother's Day
and it arrived today too!
I can't wait to play with it!

Last but not least,
this is a fun summer sampler by Bent Creek
 that I am currently stitching.
I'm using buttermilk linen instead of the
dirty linen they used.
I purchased all 4 seasons of the "soapbox" designs.
I'm hoping they will all be cute when they're done :)
