It's been a real topsy turvy week, ie work related stuff which i won't bore you with, suffice to say i was feeling pretty low. So, you can imagine my surprise & delight when i went to check my PO box to discover three items waiting for collection. WOW that certainly lifted my mood... three lovely surprises in the mail... and all on the same day!! How lucky am i??... it sure brightened up my day week :)))
A long awaited 'surprise' package (which i've been patiently anticipating) arrived from Debra (we both joined Lori's doll quilt swap). Poor Debra was just as anxious for me to receive it, because she had sent it almost four weeks ago. I couldn't wait to let her know that it had finally reached its destination, and i also emailed Lori... you can imagine their relief!
so here it is.. my sweet little doll quilt from Debra... it's perfectly scrappy just how i like it.
she also sent me a darling little spring chick pincushion (her own design)..
i love the sweet card too :))
a view of the back, reveals more lovely fabric and a sweet label.
and to finish it off, Debra went to the trouble of making little corner pockets... aren't they sweet?
btw i've had that little blue clothes hanger since i was a tiny tot, so it's definitely vintage lol.
thank you for my darling little scrappy doll quilt, Debra.. it was worth the wait :))
my second surprise package came from Kathy.... a 'thank-you' pressie for the small basket quilt i made for her.
one of Kathy's coffee mugs and three civil war fabric charms..
thank you, Kathy :))
my third surprise came from Laurie... in the shape of a sweet card (i love the quilt design) and a lovely antique quilt block... she knows what i like :))
it was a 'thank you' for the doll quilt i made for her.. isn't she sweet??
I'm ssooo delighted with all my wonderful 'surprise' goodies... they couldn't have come at a better time... a BIG thank you Debra, Kathy & Laurie for brightening up my week :))
