Oh Me, Oh My!

I'm so ashamed of myself - if this post mentions "you" (and you know who "you" are), please accept my sincerest apology!

In recent weeks (OK, months) I've received some wonderful gifts that I have failed to acknowledge - yes I'm hanging my head in shame! :-(

The following is a picture of all the treasures I found in a birthday box from Sharon. Wait, the small zippered tote was a giftee for a swap we did with three others (Wendy, Judy & Carol). The stitchery pattern that you obviously cannot see (my camera skills leave alot to be desired) is called "Rabbits Haven" by Cherished Memories. It's darling and you'll see it better when I start stitching. :-) And, there was another surprise that arrived from Sharon but I couldn't find it to include in the picture. What? The "Square Dance" book - we were chatting via e-mail about the pattern and she ordered it and had it sent to me. I was stunned and shocked when that arrived.
So, Sharon, thank you so much for all my goodies - I appreciate your thoughtfulness!
These goodies arrived from Nan! She went on vacation and while visiting the Hershey Chocolate Factory she nabbed the chocolate candle - YUMMY! And, the adorable scissor fob. I had to go out and buy a new pair of scissors just for the fob. LOL! You should see my collection of scissors - I love scissors - yes, I do! Nan, thank you so much for thinking of me while you were traveling hither and yon - you're sweet!
And, last but not least! Carrie Nelson of Miss Rosie's fame has started a blog La Vie En Rosie (don't you just love that title - lol) and she recently posted a giveaway. Well, imagine my surprise when everyone that left a comment won - yes, we all won! She sent a kit for her Schnibbles pattern "X-Rated", a project bag and a ruler (the red fat quarter is just to show the ruler). BTW, have I mentioned that Carrie and I have been friends for a very long time - I knew her before she became famous. :-)


I hope that these generous ladies will forgive my HUGE Faux Pas! However, please know that I love every little treasure that comes my way!
Thanks for stopping by! Come again soon!
In Friendship!

Goodness, but that is a lot of goodies that you have received. You must have been a very good girl the last few months!

Carrie said...

Okay, Darlene, I only say something really nice once or twice a decade so here goes... giving something to you is easy because meeting and knowing you has been one of the best gifts I've ever received.

And I'm sure there are a lot of folks who would second that statement.

I still miss seeing "Miss Cleo" regularly. :)

How nice that Carrie has a blog now, too. I shall have to visit. No hanging your head in shame, my friend! You are worth every wonderful gift you receive!
