Tis The Season…

Of giving and sharing, especially amongst blogging friends.


A short while ago, Michele sent me an email asking for my snail mail address because she wanted to send me a little surprise to thank me for sharing my First Friday Freebies with everyone.  Of course I told her that it wasn’t necessary but she insisted and I’ m so happy she did!  Just look at what she sent…


A new addition to my flock!  Isn’t she just the cutest wooley little lamb that you ever did see?  Thank you soooo much Michele…and all the way from New Zealand!


Then just recently, Carrie surprised me with these wonderful pressies.


Some wonderful Sandcastle fabric which is a kind of textured, unbleached muslin that almost looks as though it was pre-quilted, a woolen snowman ornament which is already on our tree and some yummy chocolates which you know are looong gone!  Carrie is a very special friend as she is the first person who left me a comment on my first post when I started blogging back in January of this year.  Thank you sooooo much, Carrie!


Then just yesterday, I received these wonderful treasures from Stephanie.


A gorgeous RED bobbin to add to my bobbin collection and a pincushion to add to my pincushion collection.  You certainly know how to tug at my heartstrings, Stephanie.  Thank you soooo much too!


I am so grateful to all of you for making my days so much brighter.

Happy stitching!

Kaaren ♥

That sheep is just too cute. He reminds me a little of Shaun the Sheep. If you haven't heard of him google him he is just gorgeous. What beautiful presents you received and I love the Snowmen and the pincushion is just lovely.

Things have a way of coming back ten fold to the deserving and I think you are so generous yourself. Need i say more, it comes out in your blog. The gifts are lovely. Going to NZ soon to see the live sheep for myself, lol.
