The weather here in Northern California warmed up a bit this week. This was a welcome change from the rather cool and grey days we've been having; and the fact that several lovely gifts were delivered by the mailman made it an even nicer week.
First to arrive was the lovely box that Becky stitched and finished. She generously offered her blog readers the chance to win her stunning creation and good fortune shone upon me. I won! It arrived a few days ago, and I've been admiring it ever since. Thank you Becky, for this beautiful keepsake.
The next surprise to arrive was from my friend Sonja in Germany. Sonja made me a very cute bag that I will use for my small WIP's, and a sweet little pincushion. Thank you again Sonja! I'm so glad that we met through our blogs and have become friends.
The last gift that came was a magazine from Mylene. Mylene surprised me by popping this into the mail for me and I've already found my next pattern for the Fair and Square exchange in this issue. Thank you so much Mylene for your friendship and this unexpected surprise :)
I also received my first ornament from the ornament exchange group that I'm part of. I'll be posting pictures of it next time.
