Would You Like To Know A Secret?

Sweden has an ANGEL!!
Yesterday in the mail I received a package.

A lovely package.



In it was a lovely card from my friend Stina.


Inside the lovely package was this beautiful stitched wall hanging. Anyone that knows Stina, knows that she has had a problem with her hand. Look at all the stitching that she has done. It is absolutely beautiful. It is machine quilted and beautifully so.




Yesterday was my stitching day with my friends. I brought it along so they could help take some pictures to share with you. My friend Karrie is behind the quilt.













Stina made a label for the back.





This is the nicest surprise. Words can not express how wonderful I felt when I opened this package and read the card. Thank you so much Stina. You are one of the most kind and generous people I know. Again thank you from the bottom of my heart. I love it and will cherish it always.
Tomorrow I am going to Adirondack Quilts in Glens Falls NY with some friends. I will have to do a little shopping for an angel I know. I will have my pink glasses on (Stina loves pink)! Hopefully I will remember the camera too.
Hugs,
Pat

I'm sitting here with my mouth open in awe as I type this.

Pat you are one lucky gal to have received such an awesome gift.

Stina, your work is to die for. Your Easter quilt is a breath of fresh air and a gift to be treasured for all time.

I will never cease to be amazed at how much smaller the world has become since I started blogging.

Aren't we all so fortunate?

Thanks for sharing, Pat. And I can't wait to see what goodies you come back with from your shopping trip.
