Gifts ..

Last week I received two wonderful packages, no, not more etsy shopping, but gifts from both talented and generous bloggers.

I don't often enter giveaways but could not resist congratulating Christine on her two years of blogging at Aunties Quaint Quilts, and entering the giveaway. I could not believe that I was the lucky winner of this beautiful table runner. Thank you Christine. The fabrics used and the quilting are just perfect. The table runner is already in use and I just love it!

This package was such a surprise to me. It was a replacement angel package as I missed out on my Stitchers Angel swap arriving, and Lisa had nominated to be my replacement. Lisa is such a prefect stitcher and I will treasure her gifts. We were both test sewers for Melly & me and I have a piece of Lisa's work already in my collection.

The zippered bag (all photographed on the reverse of my table runner) is appliqued with a vine on each side, and the back is made up of small patchwork squares. Lisa's fabric choice is perfect for me too! My kids are in absolute awe of the pear pincushion and there is a felt needle book too.

Thank you so much Lisa, I appreciate all the extra work and cost that was involved in being my replacement angel, and your generosity and kindness. Your gifts will be coming with me to my next craft group for a show off to my stitching friends!
