Smalls SAL and Gift Received

It's Smalls SAL Check in Post Day! Here is where you go to see what wonderful pieces everyone has done this month. I missed a few check ins I think but I've stuck with my plan of finishing a Year of Whimsy piece every month. This is the first SAL that I've stuck with the WHOLE YEAR! I'm so glad she is hosting again next year. I already have a monthly pattern picked out to complete next year and I just can't wait!! Anyway here is my Nov Whimsy all finished up again for those new to my blog...
I guess for those who are new to my blog you need to know these are from a leaflet by Dimensions that is now out of print called Year of Whimsy. I've stitched them on perforated paper and cut them out as ornaments. I have them hanging by my calendar on a cork board display. I can't believe I only have one Whimsy left to do. I've enjoyed these guys so much!! Also I wanted to share that yesterday I received an interesting package in the mail with this marking on the corner...
What?!? Then I saw the address and remembered I was awaiting a package from the lovely Jo at Serendipitous Stitching. I had won a giveaway during one of her AWESOME blog hops that she hosts. So I hurried ripped open the package...
My first ever Prairie Schooler pattern. Plus what better choice for me. Look at the fantastic ocean themed options!! Can't wait to stitch them!! There was also a gorgeous handmade card...
Here is a close up of the beautiful stitching done on the front of the card. The two patterns included also go along with the same color type scheme too. Done by a friend of Jo's. How beautiful! What a wonderful package to receive. Thank you so very very much Jo!!! I feel spoiled rotten.
