Even though I have never met a lot of you in person I always feel the connection we have. You may not comment, and that's OK or you may always leave a comment when you visit. Either way you have been with me through thick and thin. Whenever I'm out thrifting I think of certain people who I've met through blogging. I think to myself well so and so would LOVE this, or so and so made something like this over. Well, after I broke my foot one of my very special friends Tamera @ The Stone Fence Cottage did just that while on one of her excursions. This lady always has the best stuff and is always making over something not to mention makes me laugh whenever I read her blog. LOL. She has sent me email links for quilting patterns when I've asked and has been such a blessing to me. She told me that she had a little surprise for me on her blog and to hop on over a week or so ago. So I did and lo and behold she had a picture with all these great quilting books and magazines she found at GW that she said she wanted to send to me. I am so excited to read the books and find new patterns!!!!
OK OK but that wasn't all. Oh No!!!! She said she had some other goodies to send me. So she asked for my address. Alright she doesn't seem like a serial killer or stalker so sure I'll give it to her. LOL. While at work yesterday I get a phone call from my son advising me I had a box waiting for me that came in the mail. Woohoo!!!!! BUT that would have to wait until today when I got home. Next thing I know Steve is texting me telling me I have a "BIG" box waiting for me when I get home. Alright people stop doing this to me. I am stuck at work until today. LOL. So when I get home I see this...
I tear into this baby and am amazed at how generous she is. Quilting templates... too expensive for me to buy for myself...
Alright girl I swear you must be looking over my shoulder because I just got a new quilting magazine that had a star quilt in it I wanted to try and it said to use a star ruler... but I got lucky and you sent a few more to go with it. Once again too expensive to buy...lol
Of course after reading her blog I found out I won her Giveaway. This is the first thing I find is this beautiful bird needlework doily. This will be going in my bedroom when I get to work on it. Steve says I need to finish it and that it's been painted for almost 6 months now. He even pulled out my Country Samplers and started looking through to find ideas for me. LOL.
Then this awesomely prim bunny for Easter!!! I do not own any bunnies believe it or not. So I promptly added him to my Spring time display. He makes me smile whenever I look at him with his button eyes. LOL. I have LOVED button eyes on stuffed animals ever since I was little.
Then to my utter amazement a beautiful hooked Rabbit wallhanging!!!! I can NOT put into words how much I LOVE it. As soon as I get a hook it will go next to my sewing machine in my dining room. This is the room I most love and spend a lot of time in. Tamera if you have a tutorial on this you must send me the link. I want to learn how to do this!!!! If you don't you better do one!!!! LOL It is absolutely perfect!!!! Thank you so much.
I am so humbled how generous bloggers and blog followers are. Thank you from the bottom of my heart each and everyone of you for being apart of my life. I know all my blog posts aren't always that entertaining, but thanks for coming back and putting up with me. (sigh) Now how am I suppose to top this post tomorrow???? Well, lets see I went antique hunting in my Mom's garage... OK my sister did because I couldn't step over stuff cuz of my bionic foot. LOL. I also got some thrift store goodies and Steve has been busy making signs. But I will leave you for now as I am tired and have a meeting at the school for my son because he will be going on an Outdoor Education trip next month. My kids are just growing up way too fast.
