Catching Up!
(incoming & outgoing mail; birthday surprises; flimsy teaser)


Snowbound blocks for July finished and sent to Terry & Kelly earlier this month.


Surprises received from bloggy friends - wool candle mat from Karen. Thank you bunches, Karen. In the center of the mat is a darling pair of scissors from Carole (enlarge the picture - it's a wabbit - teehee) Thank you bunches, Carole.


I had a birthday earlier this week and a few surprises landed in my mailbox :-) From Carol a sweet Longaberger Basket, fabulous Dovo embroidery scissors and adorable pincushion & cute pins. Thank you bunches, Carol. :-)


A birthday surprise from Mary. A framed wool basket (yummy) and sweet red work pattern. Thank you bunches, Mary. :-)


And another birthday surprise from Carol - two Lumiere de Noel charm packs and some dots that will be fabulous background. The charm packs were wrapped in the dots and tied with the sweet ribbons. I didn't want to unwrap them - sweet packaging. LOL Thank you bunches, Carol.

Last but not least the sneak peek of the flimsy I finished earlier this week. Remember it's my evil twin, Evilena who makes me do this..............bahahahahahahahahahaha!!!!




I hope you're having a fabulous week!



Thanks for stopping by to visit with me - come again soon!

In Friendship!

Fabulous gifts Darlene! Oh the bunny scissors is so cute, love the wool candle mat, and I need some of that LuLumiere de Noel.
And now we know your secret sewing is with 12 Days of Christmas! Lovely fabric too!

Carol said...

Great gifts, so glad you had a nice birthday. You evil twin can't resist teasing us with beautiful fabric lines and not revealing anything else. Have fun sewing!

What lovely birthday gifts!! Love those wabbit scissors! Those charm packs look gorgeous. Love the look of your flimsy, can't wait to see it all!

Shakerwood said...

Lovely, lovely gifties! Happy Birthday!

Carrie said...

Birthday? You had a birthday and you didn't tell me? I spoke to you "earlier this week" and you didn't tell me?

I think that means you must be older than me...

You know... I could just tell everyone what you're doing... 'cuz I know what Evilena is up to.

........bahahahahahahahahahaha!!!!

Carrie said...

And just so you know...

HAPPY BIRTHDAY!
Happy Birthday!

H A P P Y B I R T H D A Y !!!

Happy Happy Day...

Belated, of course. :)

PamKittyMorning said...

Hey Happy Belated Birthday!!! xo

Carol said...

OMG I love Evilena...she is sooooooooooo fun!

Kaaren said...

Happy birthday my friend...{{{BIG hug and smooch}}}.

I think Evilena should fall into a big cauldron of hot oil, never to return. Now how long is she going to make us wait before the reveal? Not Christmas, I hope!

Love the candle mat from Karen and the rabbit scissors from Carole.

Did you know that Carole's shop in Rouses Point, NY, Fiber Junction, is one of my most favorite destinations? They have an awesome selection of CW fabrics.
