Recently I was in a pin cushion swap and then all the gals on HGTV started to make Dottee Dolls to swap. I have a "needling" friend in Calif. who has not been so well lately. I started to make a box up to share with her.
Sharing is something we all do and enjoy getting those boxes in the mail! I put in some pin cushions and a sewing Dottee Doll I made. I cut into some of my treasured crazy quilting fabrics to share with her and a pile of trims and pearls.
Today I got a box from South Carolina from another HGTV gal who offered to share her stash with me, including the treasured special beads she had! She also sent along strings to make a string quilt. As you can see, this was just not a box, it was a huge box! So many wonderful fabrics but the beads...oh my, they are just so much fun! Everything from hearts to lady bugs and some very fancy one too!
I was able to cut all the fabric's in half and sat for the last hour measuring the beads into bags of equal amounts. Thanks to Kathy her gifted items will be enjoyed by 2 crazy quilters!
Everything on the left side will be sent off to Norma in California! I want her to be surprised so I didn't spread out the beads for ya all to see, but I can tell you they are magic to the eye! This will certainly push me to finish my special gift for Norma so it can be added to the box!
Thanks Kathy for being such a wonderful crazy quilting friend! If your gift doesn't lift Norma's spirits, nothing will. It's just SUPER!
