Continuation Of My Last Post

This is a continuation of my last post. Blogger and I are friends again. Well maybe not!!! Here is the runner on my table.

Here is the quilting that Chris did. I love all the fruits.

The runner goes well with the fruity things I have in my kitchen.

This cross stitch picture was stitched by my friend Debbie. She gave it to me for Christmas two years ago. Well I am off now. I have a busy day tomorrow. I hope to finish up a couple of things for my cupcake swap with Erna. We are keeping in touch so we can mail our packages on the same day. I will chat soon.


Gifts in the mail.

Hi everyone. I hope you are all having a great summer. It sure is zipping right along here. Back at the end of June I won a give away by Chris from NH. We are almost neighbors!! She was very generous in her giveaway. She had shown a table runner that she had made and quilted and hinted about something else saying to think jello! When I found that I had won, I was very excited. I loved the runner. I kept thinking about the jello. I was hoping that it would not be a gelatin salad in the summer!!! Well this is what Chris sent.

Some great NH maple syrup and maple candy. Yum!! A beautiful hand made card, that I did not photo very well. The card was made by Chris's daughter. Two old hankies. An old package of pins (love them). A quilting pattern that I love and a pin cushion in an old jello mold and....

The table runner. I love it. It goes really nice in my kitchen. Chris did a beautiful job of quilting the runner with all different kinds of fruits. I have some nice pictures of the quilting but blogger is not playing nice right now. I will post pictures of the quilting when blogger will allow me to. Thanks again Chris. I love everything. I will chat soon.

My Pincushions from Chantal!

The faster I go, the be hinder I get!!!! Almost two weeks ago I received a beautiful package from Chantal in Belgium. I saw this lovely pincushion on several blogs and had admired it each and every time I saw it. I was extremely pleased when I opened my package and found that now, I am the very proud owner of the lovely pincushion too. I would like to share what Chantal sent me.

I love it. I love the fabric that she used. It is larger than I thought it was and that is great! She also sent along a lovely card and three more pincushions. She was afraid that she had not sent enough!!! (Silly girl.)

There was a pincushion to put on my wrist which is very handy. One that is in the shape of a cute little flower that I can keep right in my stitching bag. The last one is something that I am scared to death of, a mouse! But so far we are getting along just fine. I named him Mighty. Thank you again Chantal I love everything.

I will chat soon because I have a lot to show and tell.

Goodies From Spain!!

When I first started to blog a very nice lady from Spain helped me to upload and then download pictures on my blog. Her name is Margaret. As a token of my appreciation I sent her a small gift. Two weeks ago I received a lovely package in the mail from Spain. I would like to share it with you...

Margaret made me a lovely tote bag and pincushion. She also included a pair of scissors and a scissor fob that is handmade. A cute little pink pen was also included.

She chose this fabric with the little pink ribbons because she knows that my sister has cancer. Margaret, you will never know how much this means to me. I will think of you each time that I use it. It is all packed and ready for my Tuesday stitching group. I can not thank you enough for the thought that went into the fabric, the special little buttons on the tote, the scissors, scissor fob, and the pen. Thank you my friend. Great big hugs to you. I will chat again as soon as my partner receives her pincushion. I have received mine and I love them. Pictures will follow soon.
