Friday brought lots and lots of 'Fun Mail' - oh how I love 'Fun Mail'. teehee
These are goodies I received from Miss Finn! She had a fun give away recently and my name was drawn. She asked for my address and I told her that she really didn't need to send anything to me and to feel free to send the goodies to someone else. Well, she didn't listen and sent the treasures in the picture. There are two redwork stitcheries, some feedsack fabric and a wonderful C & H Sugar sack. Finn you are a true delight with an incredible soul. I thank you!
A couple of weeks ago I won a package of charm squares from Sharon's personal stash (she cut these herself) and I was expecting the package from her. However, I was a bit surprised when it was a much bigger box than I anticipated. Inside I found little birthday surprises - the pattern that's upside down in the picture (I'll post a new picture later - lol) and the cute ME slipper pincushion. I can't remember how many squares are in the little mini stack but it must be a squillion and they are all different (no duplicates). I must find something to do with these treats very, very soon. Sharon, thank you so much for adding more fun to my birthday!
Walnut Litter - this is what I use to 'stuff' my pincushions. The first time I bought a 7lb bag and went through that very quickly. Recently my DH dropped me off at the pet food store so I could run in and grab another bag - imagine his surprise when I walked out with this 25lb bag - LOL. All he said was "WOW". :-)
I use crushed walnut shells because it's a good solvent for your pins and needles (removes oils and such).
Thanks for stopping by; you know I love it when you do!
