Anyway once I'd got my morning routine underway - dishes, emptying bins etc I hopped on the PC for some blog-reading to cheer me up as I was feeling a bit mumsy and emotional. What happened next was entirely the fault of Linda. She had posted that Hancocks of Paducah were having a sale and telling us to go there and have a look. Now I admire Linda greatly - she is a fantastic quilter and a lovely lady so I had to just do as she said. It wouldn't be polite not to - lol !
And because I was feeling in need of a pick-me-up look what's coming to my house
I am so excited. I fell in love with these fabrics and they work out so cheap in comparison to buying them over here. Thanks Linda. Yes I was on the way to feeling a bit happier. Just turning off the computer when there was a knock on the door. Nice postman with a big box.
Jason asked was I expecting anything. I replied yes I was but only a pincushion which as you understand is a small item. Now as I said this box was BIG. What could it be ?
I think I am the luckiest quilter in the world today. I was completely overawed and amazed as I kept pulling out one thing after another. Just look at this treasure
And the icing on the cake was this
How completely gorgeous is this ? Do you see the hand embroidered flowers and fantastic workmanship on this. This must be the most beautiful armchair caddy EVER. Thankyou SO much Mar. You are a star ! It was certainly my lucky day when Linda partnered us all up.
I will treasure these. I love everything.
My own little parcel for the swap is almost ready to go and will definitely be gone by the deadline. I have a plan for the weekend to keep as busy as possible so I don't miss my little baby so much.
So thanks to two wonderful ladies my day went from blah to brill ! Have a good weekend all.
