For weeks my lovely email friend Sylvia in NY state has been teasing me about a package that was winging its way to Australia. Yesterday it arrived and it was chock full of lovely things – large eye needles and a fine needle threader in the shape of a heart, a really funky tape measure and a beautiful charm brooch.

Here’s a close up of the brooch. Isn’t it lovely? I’ve never seen a brooch with charms on before. The charms are so detailed too, the tape measure even has markings on it!

There was also a lovely card with a beautiful fabric quilt block with a bluebird in the centre but I forgot to photograph that. Thank you Sylvia. These gifts are so thoughtful, useful and beautiful. How did you know that brooches are my favourite pieces of jewellery?
