Lots and Lots of Fun Mail :-)

You can't help but smile when you look at my "sewing sitters". Aren't they cute? I saw these on Tammie's blog recently and decided I needed a set for my sewing room. :-) Thank you, Tammie!
Edit: Sewing Sitters here - http://www.collectionsetc.com/Item75077.aspx?esalsritm=1 the shipping is alot more than the sitters but well worth the price. LOL

This package contained new patterns from Nan - she's launched her new pattern business and these are first two adorable patterns. Take a look at the corner of the pink envelope - the stamp is a picture of Nan and her friend. Isn't that great! Nan, great job on the patterns - they are incredible. I can't wait to see lots and lots more!

Wendy and I have been exchanging 3" nine patches since August and this was her January package to me. Besides the nine patches she included an adorable pin cushion that she made and the cute doll. The sentiment on the tag hanging off the doll's hat says "Experience the inspiration of every moment of happiness". Isn't that great? Wendy and I have been having so much fun with this swap and it's almost over. She's been working on her quilt and I have yet to decide on my fabric for the alternate blocks. AARRGGHHH!! :-)

And, last but definitely not least! I received my beautiful Winter Swap Quilt from Suzanne B. She does not have a blog but reads them on a regular basis. Thank you Suzanne so much for this gift from your heart and hands!

I can't believe that we've reached the end of January! I hope that you've had a month full of JOY in your corner of the world. Thank you for stopping by - do come again!
In Friendship!

Wow look at me I'm the first to comment. That's never happened before...LOL The sewing sitters are so cute up there on your red cupboard. Nan's patterns will be fun to work on.

Oh my that swap wallhanging is gorgeous, it could be displayed all year.

I'm glad you enjoyed the swap, I've sure had a blast with it.

Nan said...

Oh my goodness, my friend! I thank you so much for posting the patterns - I sure didn't expect you to! I thank you from the bottom of my heart for your wonderful comments, too!
Where did you get the shelf sitters? I went over to the blog, but I didn't see where she got them - they are the cutest, and I must have a set of them, too! They make me smile!!
The pincushion and doll are so sweet - love the sentiment, too. Wendy is such a talented lady, isn't she?
The swap quilt is lovely, too. It's too bad Suzanne doesn't have a blog - she needs one, doesn't she? I want to see more of her work!
Thank you for the JOY you bring to my world, my friend!

Wow what a wonderful mail day you've had. Nan's patterns are adorable, and those shelf sitters. Like Nan where do we get them from? Wendy's parcel is adorable, love the little doll and pin cushion and those 9 patches, wow 3 inch finished..... Your 4 season's swap quilt is just lovely, shame the maker doesn't have a blog, I'd love to see more of her work too. Yes a JOY filled month, can you believe it I'm putting the border on my 4sqs today...oops.....
