I was going to post and share a picture of something I purchased YEARS ago and finally used it today to aid in separating values in some batiks (it was something I got on sale on a whim)...
Then I was going to show off all the neat things I have "acquired" this week from Cheryl....an AWSOME PEZ dispenser and a cool coin purse in lime green of course (sorry Cheryl, not going to show off my new clothing):
This someone from work gave me this cool pirate fabric---which by some weirdness I did not own yet --and a yard to boot!!
Oh and did I mention, this weekend is my local Ren Faire opening weekend? Yes, I get to play pirates on Saturday :)
Well, that was my plan to show off some pictures from my week....that doesn't involve sewing....until today's mail came.....
I FINALLY....FINALLY (I was not happy it too this long) got my Quilter's Home Magazine. While I have read most of it at work, I will finish it up....my favorite line still is "my friends call me the Gay Martha Stewart" pg. 62.
And then a totally complete surprise package from the wonderful Ms. Betsy. Let me say I'm still rather speechless and so moved by her generosity. But I do want to share because it is just incredible what she sent me. Let's see, the first little thing is bling!!
Then, there was a little fabric basket, 6 coasters and a BOO hand towel....well, all things are Halloween :)
And last but not least this gorgeous table topper (that I might use as a wall hanging):
I apologize for being a show off of my gift from Betsy, but I'm so genuinely moved by her gift I want to share it with everyone. This was one of the most moving packages I have received and I will treasure all these gifts! Thank you again, Ms. Betsy!
I'm tuckered out now with all this excitement.
