I have been so lucky since I started quilting and blogging, over the years I have made many wonderful friends. Some of them I have met and others well they live a very long way away from my little part of Australia so we communicate through emails. Its always a treat to hear from them and catch up on the news. Chat about our current sewing projects or just talk about whatever is going on at the time.
Every now and again we send each other little gifts and last week my sweetest friend Janita sent me a very happy package all the way from USA. Inside was this beautiful mini quilt for my kitchen. Janita and I both love embroidery so this is extra special as I know how long these projects take to make, Beautiful bowls decorated with tiny stitches.
And the label is just adorable. I love it. It means so much that Janita would go to all this effort.
And to top it off I also received these awesome ceramic measuring spoons. Janita and I have many discussions about The Pioneer Woman dishes, I love them but they are only available in the USA. So I will be cherishing these one forever.
Thankyou Janita you are such a very special friend to me and I can't wait until we get to meet. Not long to go. I want to give you a very big hug. xxxx
I have been productive in my sewing room this week, I have sorted and organised some fabric. I like having some of it out on display. Its so pretty to look at.
I have been building blocks and making a new quilt just for me. I'll share more of them next time. I have made 6 so far.
I am also working on my first custom order, this customer would like a tote bag and a patchwork basket, I think I have almost accomplished that. What do you think?
Thankyou for stopping by, I hope you have a wonderful weekend and you find some time to sew. xxx
