Roo Mail

Do you remember the little giveaway that I had last week for 'Guess the quilt square theme'?

The winner was Sandi from Embroideroo. I sent her a red crochet doily brooch which matched my ferris wheel quilt square..... and then Sandi sent me back the most gorgeous pressie!

Sandi works in a chocolate shop (my idea of heaven), and so she sent me my favourite type of chocolate (peppermint). I've never even seen Junior Mints before (you'll have to just pretend that the box is still full.... I may have already polished those off).

The sweet little covered tape measure has already been put to good use as I had to take a trip out to my garage to measure my trestle table for an upcoming market. I have a habit of losing tape measures so I'm going to be very careful to keep this one safe and sound.

Underneath all the pressies is a microfibre cleaning cloth from Sarah Smith. Sandi was absolutely correct in thinking that I would love it!

Thanks so much Sandi - I'm off to have a cup of tea and that lovely Fry's Peppermint Cream chocolate bar while watching The Bold and the Beautiful.

PS - If you haven't visited Sandi's blog before - head on over and check out her very cool studio.

What lovely mail! Junior Mints are yummy. Another good American peppermint chocolate combo is the York Peppermint patty which can be procured from USA Foods in Moorabbin.

Junior Mints are the best - can't believe you have never had them before - that just isn't right - LOL!

Glad you enjoyed the pressies. It was my pleasure.
Might do a tutorial on the covered tape measure - they are easy-peasy to make!

Junior mints - remember that episode of Seinfeld where they were watching a guy have an operation, and Kramer accidentally dropped a junior mint - into the guy on the operating table!
