Long Overdue Thank You to Blog Friends!

This pretty tote along with wallet and key fob arrived in my mailbox last week from Cyndi. Her work is amazing and I'm so lucky to have received this awesome gift!! Love it! Big roomy pockets on both inside and out along with a zipper pocket. She says she made some modifications to this pattern...whatever she did it worked and it is perfect! I'll be ordering a few more totes from her in the near future.
Mary Lou sent me the sign many, many weeks ago. Both Mary Lou and I seem to collect these sorts of signs. Thank you Mary Lou!

The little quilt top was sent to me from Carol as a "just cause" gift. I still need to quilt and bind it but isn't it an adorable mini? Today is Carol's birthday!! Happy Birthday dear friend.

I won this pincushion from Kim. This pincushion means the world to me! You see, while visiting the Philippines many moons ago I bought one and used it, and used it until finally it could take no more abuse. I was so bummed because I loved this pincushion. Kim had a giveaway of a few of them that I believe she found on Ebay. I won, I won, and now I have a favorite back! Thanks Kim!


I've also got some quilt photos to share but will save those for my next post. I was well overdue my thank you!
