Surprises in the Mail!

I have truly made some wonderful friends on the internet. Not only do we email each other, but sometimes they surprise us with the most wonderful packages. One of those friends is Midge, who lives in England, in an old cottage. She has a wonderful blog with photos of the most beautiful place in the world, I want to live there, lol. She also makes the most beautiful teddy bears and restores them for others. She knows I love kitties, and she made me a little kitty and I just love him!




And he even has a hump like the antique teddy bears. So much detail and jointed too, I feel very special to receive this beautiful kitty:)



And not only did she send that, but I received a beautiful pair of mohair mittens, a british tote and a happy magnet. This was for a pay it forward she was doing, and I was the lucky recipient.



I also received a package from my friend Kelly. Kelly and I met on an online rug hooking group and we have been friends since. She is the one who got me back into quilting and she is always sending me wonderful packages filled with quilting goodies and fabric. This fabric is from a quilt her mom is making. Her mom is also a wonderful quilter and quilts by hand. She sent me three of the blocks and the rest of the precuts, so I can make more log cabins. I think they would make a beautiful table cloth or runner. It was nice to receive such wonderful things this week. Being sick is no fun, but packages sure can brighten up my day:)
