A Surprise Gift!!

When I got home from work today, there was a surprise package in my mailbox! It was from my new friend Gloria, in Argentina. She was my Spring Blooms Mini Quilt Swap partner. You can check out her blog
I sent her an appliqued flower mini quilt and some fabric and thread last month. And it took the mail service 2 weeks to deliver it and for a while there I was worried that it was lost. But it finally arrived, WHEW!!

Can you believe how sweet of Gloria to send me such a wonderful gift package??? I was soooooooo surprised to see her name on the return address!!

I can't believe Gloria sent me this awesome witch! I am crazy about Halloween and I can't wait for October now so I can hang this up!! She even hand quilted around it, too.

I have always loved the old upright shaped coffee pots. How many of you remember the sound of the old percolator coffee pots?? Isn't this a wonderfully paper pieced block?

I don't know why this photo changed to portrait instead of landscape!! But isn't this tissue case cute? This is the back of it...the other side has a center slot to pull the tissues from!

I just looovvveee days when the mail brings more things than just bills!! Don't you???


  1. Well, Polly, what a wonderful surprise. They are cute ... now what will you do with them?
