Hopefully I am back in blog land to stay. I have tried to keep up with my blog list but sometimes it was just to hectic to do so. Now I am going to try harder and do better at this blogging business.

On my first post back I would like to share with you a Christmas gift I received from my friend Margaret in Spain. This package was mailed in the early part of December. As some packages do, this one took the long way around to get here. Margaret was very worried around Christmas when she had not heard from me. She was sure that the package was lost and was never to be seen again. I told her to have faith and believe that it would arrive soon. Well near the end of February the package arrived looking in great condition for being in the postal system for two months.

Inside looked pretty good too.

Then I ripped that pretty paper and bow off and found this treasure inside. OMGoodness a new stitching bag. I just love it. It is so big and Margaret added extra pockets to the inside. I take my bag to stitching every Tuesday. As you may know Spring has not arrived here in NY yet. I am still waiting for it. ( I did see a Robin this week. yea!!) We still have snow, ice and lots of dirt all over everything from sanding and salting the roads. Because of her fabric choice, putting my bag in and taking it out of the car several times still looks great.

Don't you just love it? I sure do.

In the two smaller packages I found these beautiful cross stitch ornaments. I hated to have to put them away until next Christmas. The fabric is so fine and the stitches are perfect. Everything that Margaret does is beautiful.

I treasure all my goodies from her.

Thank you again Margaret. I love all my goodies. I treasure our friendship more than anything.
I will be back soon with more gifts both given and received.
Hugs and Stitches,
