While I was going through a very long six weeks of radiation and chemo treatments a short time ago, the highlight of each week was to go home on the weekends and spend time with Mr. Painted Quilt, Mac and Frankie…even though I slept most of the time. The icing on the top of the cake was the sight of all the packages and cards piled high on our dining room table that were arriving daily by mail from around the world. I can’t tell you how touched and overwhelmed I was and still am with your generosity and for caring.
I would like to share with you some of the gifts I received.
♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥
Tons of fabric including yardage, fat quarters and charm squares. Heavenly!
You can never have too many pincushions!
Hand crafted items…stunning!
Miscellaneous bits and bobs…too much fun!
Bags and cases…gorgeous…and useful too!
Tissue holders, needlecases, scissor keeps, change purses, a thread catcher and a cardinal ornie. Swoon!
Patterns…I want to make them all!
I think these postcards were made using the technique called thread art but I stand to be corrected. The images are totally created using a sewing machine. Click on the photo to enlarge it for a better and closer look. They are truly works of art!
The reverse side of the postcards.
All kinds of note pads and some felted wool to add to my stash.
Two pieced houses blocks which I think I’ll be making into pincushions like Mary did here.
Magazines and books loaded with inspiring ideas!
Paper pieced minis…to die for!
And last but not least, angels to watch over me.
Amazing stuff, huh? Whenever I look at these photos my heart melts and I’m blown away again. Thank you all from the bottom of my heart. I will treasure these gifts forever.
If you’ve read this far then you know that today is the day where I’m happy to announce the winner of my Flying Scarecrow giveaway.
I know it’s not picked that often but Mr. Random Generator didn’t have to spin the wheel too hard because it only had to go as far as number 1.
Janet O didn’t have too much faith in being the first person to leave a comment but see, Mr. RG proved her wrong. *wink* Janet, I will be sending you an email shortly to ask for your mailing address and pretty soon, the Flying Scarecrow will be living at your house.
Thanks to everyone who entered. I wish I could have had one for each of you!
