I also received some wonderful postcards , some unexpected and some I knew were on their way .
Pauline , isn't that embroidery beautiful ! Thanks so much Pauline , I love it , my house is going to be nicely decorated with these pretty cards this holiday season .
This postcard was sent by JoAnne , I won it in her giveaway and I love how she overlapped leaves to give a 3-D affect and added some decorative stitching , very lovely ! Thanks JoAnne.
Another surprise mail came from Cheryll , a little gift for taking part in Friday Night with Friends , hey I should be thanking her for being such a wonderful hostess .
Some cute little coasters which happen to have Friday Night with Friends written on them so next time I take part I can use them beside my chair or sewing machine where I am stitching and I will really feel like I am playing along . She also included a cute little quilt label :-) Thanks so much Cheryll , you truly made my day , and again thank you for hosting this fun event , I love the fact I am stitching with friends far and wide .
I have been busy in the sewing corner these past few days and have completed four little gifts for my grandchildren .
I had seen these cute little pencil cases on Patchouli Moon in a blog hop recently and she gave the link for the pattern so what is a girl to do but go retreive said pattern( a free pattern by Moda ) and start sewing . Thanks for the link Daryl , I think my youngest grandchildren will love them and you know it was a great way to make use of scarps that had been around for way too long , not to mention old zippers ;-)
Thanks for stopping by today , hope you are enjoying a fun day doing something you love :-)
