~~~Gifts and and an Exchange arrive~~~

I think Christmas has already arrived at my house!!! Look what came in the mail from Myra yesterday~~~~ She gifted me with one of her original handmade zippered bags and I am here to tell you, it is TOO cute~~~ I dont know how she does it, but these bags are so useful for about anything.... And I want you to take a look at the "sampler" fabric and the tiny key zipper pull........."Thank you" Myra!! I just love it~~~
AND, as if the zipper bag was not enough, she gifted me with a quilted pin pillow for my Pink Basket.... Myra is an awesome quilter and this little dittie showcases her perfection~~ She even made the pin!

Then, in today's mail, came my exchange package from Jill........I have been so lucky throughout the year to be Jill's exchange partner in the "Friends Stitching through the Seasons" exchange..... She has continually spoiled me with goodies and the winter exchange was no exception!!!

Inside this cute snowman wine box, I found verigated DMC flosses, holiday tissues and napkins, a hand knitted blue cup "sweater" and the new Lizzie Kate Snowman 2010 made into a beautiful pinkeep~~~ Did she spoil me or what???? Jill's handwork is impeccible and those tiny buttons just set it off.... I cannot thank you enough for all 4 seasonal exchanges you have gifted me throughout 2010 Jill....I love them all and am so appreciative for every single thing you have sent me!!!

As for me, my goodies are all in the mail and today I hope to finalize my grocery shopping list for tomorrow....And, my dining room table is covered in freebie charts and the like that I hope to organize into binders....... Part of my getting ready for an organized 2011~~!

Make it a great day everyone, Faye

I'm glad your exchange arrived safely. I was just a little nervous. I'm assuming the tube arrived undamaged. I thought it was such a cute way to mail! Enjoy!

OH now that snowman from Jill is just precious! I am glad you like my little gifts for a most deserving, inspiring person. :o) I haven't even put my grocery list together yet! Yikes!

Isn't it great to get packages in the mail. I get super excited when I get "special" mail. Looks like you'll have lots of goodies to enjoy over your break.
Merry Christmas!

Gorgeous, gorgeous gifts!!!! I've seen a few of those projects bags Myra makes in blog land, I have to say I am tiny bit envious. They are so cute :-). Have a merry Christmas.

Margaret said...

What wonderful gifts! Talk about a good mail day! Have a happy Christmas!

Carol said...

We have matching project pouches from Myra, Faye--aren't they the best! I just love that fabric and her finishing is perfection...

Wishing you and your family a wonderful Christmas...

Lynn said...

Myra makes the prettiest pouches! I've seen a few of these on some of the other blogs. And I love the LK snowman!!
I did the binder thing with the freebies last winter and it is so much nicer. I organized them by season and then put the remainder under miscellaneous. Takes me a lot less time to find them.

Karen said...
