Me! I know. That sounds so ridiculously self indulgent. Well it is true. I have received such thoughtful and fun treasures lately. I'd like to thank the academy, er-a, I mean my friends!!......
Lori, who makes the world a more beautiful place, gave me her latest pattern. Which I love.
I think my favorite is the tree. It looks like the tree of life. It is fabulous. As is Lori.
Rae Ann, who has more energy and drive than you would believe, gave me this kit to make a pinch bag.
I think that is what it is called. I've always wanted to make one. Thanks Rae Ann.
Dawn, who is kind and supportive of everyone, made the adorable cinch bag. Isn't it cute. Gotta love those fabrics and I really love linen, too.
And inside it had more little gifts. Candy and cards - sweet. Thanks Dawn. I love them all.
The popular and talented Sherri made me a mushroom hot pad. And now I want this fabric. Isn't it so darling.
It has a little pocket in front. The birds and birdhouse fabric is also some I want now. See what you've done Sherri. Thanks so much. It really is so cute.
Nedra, the hostess of our little group, gave me a treat box to snack on during the event. Of course it was so cute, too. And inside . . .
was this wool pincushion. It is a cactus, of course. To help us remember our few days in the sunny south of Utah. I'll always think of Nedra when I use it. Thanks Nedra.
My sister Michelle brought me this great vintage tablecloth. She knows what I love.
And she gave me this one, too. She thought I might cut them up and make things with them but I'm not sure I want to do that. They are in such great shape. I may just keep them to use. Thanks Michelle, that is so thoughtful of you.
I know. You all hate me at this point for getting such great loot. But it didn't end there. When I got home I had a surprise package. It was full of wonderfulness inside this lovely linen bag. Isn't that rose bouquet fabric perfect. Rose fabric is one of my very favorites. So vintage.
One of the lovely surprises in the box was this nifty fat quarter. With my favorite colors on it. So sweet. Thank for all of it, my friend. You are so thoughtful and good to me.

Thanks to all my girls. I'm so incredibly spoiled!

It's wonderful to be spoiled by your friends! Lori's new quilt pattern is great! I wouldn't cut up those tablecloths either. Maybe someday but not yet. :-)

Lynn said...

Wonderful fabrics! I love the tablecloth, I have a vintage one here that I had plans on cutting up, but decided to keep it whole. I was thinking of you this morning. I was at my local wal-mart and went to check out there tastykake selection and guess what, they only carry sugar-free tastykake products now. No more cupcakes in the yellow and blue box, no kandycakes or krimpets ... maybe they'll change their minds.

I feel like a winner too, because I was the recipient of many of those gifts. Aren't we fortunate to have such caring and talented friends?
Thank YOU for all the gifts you gave me. I know I can't show pictures as of yet, but I always treasure my Nanette handmade item, and think fondly of you when I see them.

Rae Ann said...

I simply adore those darling vintage tableclothes to death! I adore those sisters of yours as well. It was fun getting to know them and seeing how cute you all were together.
I also loved all of my loot... a reminder to me of a wonderful time had by all... what a hoot!
