Fun from Friends

It is so fun to get special gifts from friends. I always feel very humbled by gifts and things shared with me.
Everyone loves a great blog give-a-way. I was very happy to win Heather's prize at her Blog Retro-Fabulous. Look at the bundle of goodies Heather shared with me. Among the treats was a hand made needle book, one of my very favorite threads and these great solids.
I love a new template/ruler. And this easy cut circle will definitely be used by me. I'm always looking for ways to use my specialty notions. Thanks so much Heather.
I've got a lot in common with my sweet pal Aunt Spicy. She's an amazing girl and we even have mutual relatives. We'd have never found each other without blogging. Aunt Spicy sent me this darling vintage fabric. She so gets me!
It is a Pennsylvania Dutch fabric and of course I love it. I'm from Pennsylvania Dutch country. This is a really special fabric. Thanks so much Jen.
Here is me with my friend Emily of Em's Scrap Bag. Emily lives a little more than an hour away from me and she asked me to bring my quilts and give her quilt group a trunk show last week.
That Emily! She made me a big treat bag. She shouldn't have! She knows me so well, she packed in some of my favorite things.
Along with fabric picked just for me. So sweet. She picked my favorite objects in fabric, too. Love them.
She treated me to all things Freda's Hive. Dove chocolate - my fav. How did she know I go through kitchen tools? Thanks so much Emily.
Here is Emily showing one of her latest quilts. I just love it. She used a wedge ruler. What a great way to use my wedge ruler.
Here is another quilt of Emily's. She's very scrappy - a girl after my own heart.
Here are a few of the gals in Emily's group. They were so sweet and full of compliments. I really enjoyed meeting them.

Good friends and fun treats.

Beautiful presents and fabrics :)
I love this little umberella quilt.. that border is just the sweetest! Emily's quilts are very fun! Glad you had a great time with the show :D

Looks like the group enjoyed your trunk show. I think it must be universal--quilters and chocolate. When our group had it's event, I covered Hershey Nuggets using an address label with a patchwork pumpkin and a thank your from the group. We put them in a homemade fabric sleeve with a tea bag and bookmark.
