Aloha Lettie!

Arlette from the Polka Dot Pineapple has surprised me with an awesome box of goodies straight from Hawaii!! She was here in NC last month with her husband and my friend Karen and I went down and took her for a fun day of shopping. We also enjoyed a nice lunch at the Olive Garden. (see previous posting)

Karen and I both asked Lettie to send us a piece of Hawaiian fabric but I never thought I would receive such a wonderful package! It is chocked full of things Lettie makes! I see these things on her blog and secretly wish I had her talent for coming up with these cute items! (Maybe she can read my mind) I so appreciate everything she has sent to me and will use it all!

Do you remember my previous post about the Australian chocolates called TimTams? Now I have Hawaiian Caramacs and ToffeeMacs!! I haven't opened them yet but you can be sure I will before the day is up!

Oops...the box of CaraMacs are open...Took the photo a while to upload so I had to have something to do! hehehe

This close up is of the doughnut pincushion she made for me, as well as a mug rug, keychain, and a jewelry bag!

I sampled a CaraMac while that photo loaded and I give it an A++! YUM!

This is a close up of the jewelry bag...My mind is trying to envision how to use it for a portable CQ bead bag! :)

Double oops now...The ToffeeMacs are open! I can't help the fact that my camera takes so long to upload a photo! :)

Now for these fabulous fabrics!! I told my hubby that I am going to make us an Hawaiian quilt using all of these fabrics together! Aren't they beautiful!!

You know what happened don't you!! YEP!! I ate 2 ToffeeMacs!! Well, what did you expect?? I uploaded 4 photos at one time and it took forever!! DOUBLE YUM!! I do not believe I told Lettie that chocolate covered toffee and chocolate covered coconut are my 2 most favorite candies!! Now how did she know? :)

Thank you so much Lettie for the wonderful goodies!! It felt like Christmas at our house today!

Thearica, I am so happy to see that you are enjoying your goodies. Isn't the toffee and caramel/macadamia nut combo divine? I can sit and eat a whole box all by myself. I know, bad me!
I wish you and your family a happy and healthy new year.
Hauoli Makahiki Hou!
