Beautiful gifts from friends

I have been blessed in many ways....the best way is all of the wonderful friends I have made through this business. Friends all over the world and I treasure each and every one of them.

I received a beautiful stitched sewing pocket from Maggee. She said this is the first one she has made and it is beautiful! Thank you so much Maggee!!
The next day I received a package from France from Christine. Lots of little treasures! A post card from Toulouse, also known as the pink city because of all of the houses built with pink bricks. Also included were some  floss samples, a wood button, a ceramic dress form, hand made tags, a violet flower wooden button, some antique trim, a monogram of my initial and a gorgeous antique thread card winder! Thank you so much Christine!

I really needed the pick-me-up as I haven't been feeling very well and these gifts from treasured friends did the trick. As I said....I am blessed......

Have a great day and thanks for stopping by!
Be sure you have entered the floss give-away. Deadline to enter is the 30th.
