A Wonderful Gift
I have received a lovely gift from Carol today. We decided that as Christmas was so hectic that we would send each other our Christmas gifts in 2 parts - 1 part in time for Christmas and the 2nd part after Christmas. Carol's wonderful part 2 just arrived and I LOVE it!!!! I will have my part 2 for her leaving this week:) Carol stitched this beautiful Shepherds Bush Pin Cushion for me and also sent a Red Sox DVD which I am going to watch on my day off on Thursday, and a box of candy (they are not in the pic as hubby and I ate them:) and some lovely body cream:) I am one spoilt girl:)

My lovely fob arrived
My beautiful fob and package arrived from Cathy B. On Valentines Day as well. What a lovely surprise!!! Cathy made me a gorgeous fob from Prairie Schooler. I honestly don't know how she parted with it. LOL. Also in the wonderful package were Crescent Colour threads, Silkweaver fabrics, a Lizzie Kate design (with dragonflies of course) and a pack of heart candy. Very appropriate for Valentines Day. What great timing Cathy!! It took a bit longer than normal to reach me here in Australia as the package was inspected by customs and was held for quarantine. It would have been because of the candy Cathy included. I am guess that when it went through the x-ray scanner in customs that they may have thought we were involved in a drug ring or something. LOL. I would have loved to see their faces when they saw it was candy:)
What a wonderful gift

I can't seem to load pics at the moment. I will try and post them again later.

Framed Samplers
I picked my samplers up from the framer today. I realised after I had taken the photos that I had not taken the cardboard corners off:) I am really happy with them:) I stitched paradim Lost and my friend Sandra model stitched The Token for me:)

Also, I am looking for back issues of Quilt Sampler by Better Homes & Gardens. Does anyone have issues they would be willing to part with? I would be happy to trade or pay for them. I am looking for back issues going to 2004. I already have Fall/Winter 2007 and Fall/Winter 2006. If anyone can help, please let me know:)
