My Christmas Swap Arrived!

There was a package on my front porch when I got home from work yesterday! It was from my Christmas swap partner, Laura in Arizona. I don't think Laura has a blog but wish she did so I could see more of her beautiful work.

Look at what she sent me......everything is so perfect for me. First the beautiful quilt she made. I love the colors and the sweet angel in the center. The fabrics she used are all so pretty. One of them looks similar to one that I have, but I haven't seen the others. Her points on the star are absolutely perfect and I love how she made the inner border. (What a great idea; I'm going to have to use that in something I make soon!) And Laura even sewed on sweet little star buttons, which I just love.

If this sweet quilt wasn't enough, she also sent me a wonderful book, just in time for me to take to Maryland for Thanksgiving. You know I won't be doing much after stuffing myself with all that yummy food, so I'll have a good book to read while curled up in my sister's huge and comfy chair.

And look at the bundle of eight (yes 8!)Christmas fabrics she included in my package. I was just telling my sister the other day that I love elegant Christmas fabrics and it's hard for me to pick out the cutesy prints, even though I needed some for a current project I'm working on. It's like Laura read my mind. Hmmm - maybe she's telepathic?
And maybe it's not just a thought because she topped off the entire package with a sweet card and these yummy treats that I can't wait to get into - chocolate covered hazelnuts. I love hazelnuts and who doesn't love chocolate?

Laura, thank you so much for my beautiful quilt and other gifts you included. You really went overboard and to say that I appreciate it is an understatement! Thank you again for the beautiful quilt and gifts!



OH MY what a nice batch of goodies you have gotten in the mail!!! Love them all--take care and enjoy each of them--do have any ideas as to what you will use the Christmas fabrics for --yet???
Hugs, Di
