Wonderful Mail

A while back I  was lucky enough to win a wonderful giveaway on Michelle's blog  "Michelle Ridgeway Designs" and with our postal strike it was a long time coming and I know Michelle was getting a tad worried that it was lost forever but it did eventually reach its destination much to my delight. I have had this for a while now but simply did not have time to post or take a picture of it , bad girl I am but I really wanted to share these wonderful goodies with you all . Michelle was very generous and gave me a sweet little notepad with matching pen ,the most beautiful lace ,two gorgeous pieces of fabric (,my colors too :-) ) ,two lovely postcards , a book of the birds of Australia that was a nice surprise as I love birds and last but not least is a pattern designed by Michelle and I just love it and can't wait to make it , she is a wonderful designer and I love all the work I have seen so far by her so check her out here . Thanks so much Michelle you are the best.
I have a lot of things I want to share with you , I have been to two quilt shows lately and will eventually show you some pictures and yesterday DH and I went to the Annapolis Valley and had a terrific day and I just happened to notice a sign in front of a church that said Quilt show but that was a little misleading as there were just a few quilts for sale along with lots of other handmade items by the ladies of the church and then a white elephant table , never heard of that , well it is a used item table basically and well I had fun there and will show you some of my lovely finds real soon .
I am also working on the tutorial for the postcards and hope to get that finished this week and will have a sign up post real soon too.

 Before I go be sure to stop by and visit with Samelia's Mum to enter in a great giveaway , some delightful stitchery patterns ,.
Enjoy your day and thanks for stopping by.
hugs Sheila
