I Just Have To Share

This gorgeous house warming gift that I just received from Mary at Quilt Hollow not 5 minutes ago.

Mary is a very dear blogger friend and was one of the first to welcome me into the blogging community almost two years ago.  Mary has gifted me with a few of her second-to-none creations since then which I am proud to display in our home and I can assure you that this one will certainly take over center stage. 

Have a look at this…

Perfection!

I am not kidding you when I say that there are no better friends than blogging friends, especially those who spontaneously do things just out of  kindness and expect nothing in return.  Mary is only one of the many of you who have touched my heart in more ways than I could ever express here.  You all know who you are and I want to thank you for your kindness and above all, your friendship.  I am very blessed.

Thank you all…and thank you, Mary.

Kaaren estimated a month ago I am fan of your blogs, but problems with the language prevented me to write and thank you for the patterns and above all friendly and cheerful as you are. I hope you will understand the commentary. Merry Christmas from Toledo, Spain.

Marit Johanne said...

How wonderful to get such a beautiful surprise! Like you said I too think blogfriends are very generous and nice. Some frieds that are not blogging think it is stupid of me to spend time at blogs. But I think blogfriends enrich my life each day.

onlymehere said...

What a sweet surprise and the stars are so perfect for the holiday season. They remind me of the star that shown so bright on that first Christmas day. You do have some wonderful friends and Mary is just a very sweet soul. Enjoy!
