What Can It Be?

Ahhhh, a mystery....... It started with an email from a stitching friend wanting my mailing address....hmmm...... yes, I trust this person so I think that will be okay......I'm very curious.....she says I will just have to be curious, she is dropping an envelope in the mail for me......OK, she is probably sending me a card or a note, yes, I'm sure that is what it is......I'll just wait and see....... a few days go by......... and then I spy this in the mail......


I take a closer look.....yes, it's for me........doesn't look like a card or a note.......hmmm....


I wonder what it could be.....?

Let's see what's inside.......yes, there is a card..... and something else.......



Keep going.....



WOOOOOWWWW!


What!?! There's more!?!


AMAZING!!!!!


STUNNING!!!!..... and it's for me?!!!
Well, I'm speechless, delighted and completely overwhelmed by this beautiful, unexpected, generous and completely undeserved gift!

Barbie, even though I have thanked you already, it wasn't enough - I had to thank you publicly, as well. I can not believe the time and effort you put into this wonderful gift, all stitched over one, no less! I will cherish it always - THANK YOU!!!!

Sharon,
I'm so glad you liked the set of sewing smalls! But let's be honest here - kindness begets kindness and you deserved every stitch! Not just for being kind to me personally, but for your selflessness in sharing sooo many wonderful complimentary designs for stitchers everywhere. Here's to you!!! Happy Stitching. . .
