Valentine's arrival

Just in time to cheer me up after a bout with the flu my secret valentine's package arrived from Heidi. She sent lots of chocolate, including dove chocolates that have a message on the inside of the wrapper. Even if she hadn't signed the card I would know it came from south of the border. Canadians will instantly spot what I mean.
Here's a closer look: Yeah, you got it- no french! If this was bought in Canada it would have both french and english on it.
The exchange included a decorated tea towel. Heidi didn't realise that it was supposed to be an edging as well as hearts so she improvised using crochet to attach the hearts. I think it turned out nicely! Sorry the picture quality is pretty crappy but you get the idea.

Heidi sent a few other things including sticky notes (which I absolutely love to the point of shamelessly stealing them from friends), beads, blue jewelery box, sweethearts, and a nail file.
Thanks Heidi.
I'd also like to take a moment to thank my Secret Santa from Iowa. In January I tried posting a few times about what she sent me but I was having mysterious computer problems at the time. The posts kept disappearing. Needless to say it was a great package. Thanks.


Anyone out there? Say hi if you are......
