I've got Presents

22 comments
You all know I have the very best friends. They are all so kind and generous to me. I have to show you some of the thoughtful things my friends have done for me.
Sunday my friend Laura brought us her famous carrot cake. I was glad my family was there to share it or I might have been tempted to eat it all. It was so delicious. Thanks Laura
I was surprised by Jodi of Pleasant Home last week with this darling personalized magnetic pin catcher. It is made from a magnetized parts dish, clever, huh. Jodi painted it for me with a hive and bees! It will be right next to my sewing machine. Thank you so much Jodi. I will love having it be deep enough to hold my sewing foot when I switch to machine quilt.
I love Karen's (of Messy Karen blog) wavy wipers. Love. I don't know what yarn Karen uses but it might as well be a stress reliever, too. It is stretchy and fun to play with as well as wipe up counters. It is cute and a perfect size. Even Allison loves to play with them.
Sandi of A Legacy of Stitches is a dear heart. She's so thoughtful and serves so many people. She made me a card holder with a sweet bee fussy cut right in the center along with a personalized card, a pattern and piece of vintage novelty fabric. Thank you Sandi. I just ordered new business cards with my new logo on them. I can't wait to put them in my new card holder. There are lots of uses for a little holder this size. Sandi puts dollars away here and there to save for fabric trips. Good idea!

I am spoiled!

Jodi paints too? Everytime I see something made with a bee I think of you and Lori.
I'm so glad your friends spoil you. I know you have spoiled them back. (me included)

I have one of those for my pins. Although it's not painted beautifully like your's, it's one of my favorite purchases ever.

Sandi said...

I agree with everyone else.....that cake looks deeeelicious! Glad you liked the little card/cash holder. I've bought several of the Little Wallet holders (by Valorie Wells) for friends. Actually, I bought one for me, then gave it away, so I had to buy another and then I gave that one away. I finally bought one just for me and a couple extras to give away. :-)
