"It takes ages to finish a quilt you're not working on!"

Tuesday, August 21, 2007

My mail box was full today!

As well as the items below, I received two aprons and two books about aprons. But you will have to go here to see those. Here is a lovely surprise from the U.S.A.! I had sent Judy a cross stitch kit that was given to me ages ago, and I knew I would never work it, so knowing Judy liked the designer, I sent it to her. When she asked what I would like in return, I asked if she would send me this chart for "The BookShelf" when she had finished stitching it. (Visit her blog to see the finished product - stunning!) Not only did she send the chart, she sent all the required floss as well! Not only that, but she threw in another chart pictured here. I've already emailed her, but thank you again, Judy! By the way, she has the two cutest cats you've ever seen in Blogland...go see! This is a cute old fashioned peg (clothespin for the Americans) bag. I have several of these, and actually use one of them to keep my pegs in!
