Yesterday I received a beautiful note in the mail from the lovely Melody. Along with the note she sent me a beautiful gift..
The most beautiful button and one of these amazing drawings from Michelle Palmer. Mel thank you I was just tickled pink and I can't wait to do something special with it.
I was feeling pretty happy after that but there was more joy coming my way. I am in a wonderful swap group and the gifts had started to arrive on different blogs so a few names had been ticked off and yesterday it was my turn. My partner was the beautiful Fiona and this is what she sent (you better sit down I had to)..
Isn't that the cutest bunny you have ever seen and the fabric is just beautiful. But along with Bunny was that huge parcel and I did the feel test and it wasn't squishy it was really hard so now it really had me guessing...
Then these fell out of the parcel, now yesterday I was really tired maybe dear Fiona new and thought I needed a boost of energy! Best I unwrap another layer..
The sweetest little pin cushion and I was whinging about how small my Dresdens were Fiona's are tiny and don't you just love the colours. Also a bag of licorice and this will come in very handy over the next few days when I need a treat.. But the big girl was still not opened..
Tah Dah the most AMAZING Dresden I had even seen. The very clever Fiona had turned her Dresden into a clock, yep a clock, how stunning is this and wait look at the quilting..
I just sat there (told you I had to sit) and ran my hand over this stunning quilting..
Look Mumma and baby..
Fiona I cannot thank you enough for this wonderful parcel of goodness you just can't imagine how much joy it gave me. THANK YOU. I feel incredibly blessed to be asked to join this wonderful group of talented women and am so pleased that the beautiful Peg encouraged me to become a "blocker" - I have made some wonderful kind friends who I treasure. Oh dear I need a little tissue.
So who's a lucky girl - that would be me and on the note I had better get off the couch as the removalist truck is heading up our drive in two hours. So if things get a little stressful today I will think of my huge haul of booty from Mel and Fiona yesterday and I will skip through the day.
