Surprises

Post #2 for today :)
Some days ago I got a lovely mailbox surprise in my mailbox. My dear friend Nancy sent me a "get well from the flu"-package. Two beautiful fabrics and a hanger. And look at that funny sign - "quilter on board". I got to hang that in my car when I'm going to quiltmeetings and of cours at our annual quilt meeting in march.

Today another surprise in the mailbox. All the way from Australia. Some time ago I was one of Helen Stubbings PIF-friends. And today came what she had put together for me. A cute handmade card, a package of her NPNT cards, a iron on patter and......................

LOOK at this beautiful cushion. I LOVE IT. As you see I have already placed it in my sofa. I have for long time wanted to change the pillows in my sofa, so this was the perfect PIF for me. And I love the colours in it. So now I have to do something with the other cushions. Perhaps change all of them to stitchery cushions??? THANK YOU Helen for this wonderful PIF.

Hi May, what lovely gifts you received.

I've been popping in to see what you're up to but I've been lazy and not leaving comments.

So....I just wanted to say, HELLO!
