My Spring Blooms Mini Quilt Swap gifts arrived and I’m thrilled to pieces! My swap partner’s name is Brenda and she owns the Pumpkin Patch Primitives quilt shop in Nashua, New Hampshire.
The irony of having Brenda as my swap partner is that I have visited her website on several occasions and had wanted to place an order more than once. I restrained myself because Sam said that we would visit the shop while we were on vacation during the summer months and I’d much rather shop in person.
Even after I received my gifts, I didn’t make the connection until I emailed Brenda to thank her for my gifts and the name sounded familiar. Then the light bulb went on!
This was what I found when I opened the package…two fat quarters of A’s, Bees and Dandelion Seeds by Jacqueline Paton for Red Rooster Fabrics, the cutest sewing themed resin ornament and a wrapped package tied with a bow.
Brenda wrote these words in her note that I think sums up what swapping is all about…”I truly hope you like the little quilt I’ve made for you. It was stitched with love and made in the spirit of friendship”.
Thanks, Brenda from the bottom of my heart for the wonderful gifts. I will treasure them always.
