A new kid on the block.....

As in a previous post, I cannot seem to get enough Christmas Cottages, by the time I am done it will be King size, note “by the time I am done”.
I was lucky to get a beautiful cottage from Nanette, but really wanted one from Terri, so we did a private swap. Look at this new addition! She knows I love pink and this is awesome, it will look great in the neighborhood.




Now Terri and I are friends, look at how my Cottage came, not in a flat envelope but in a box with all this great stuff.
PINK, PINK, PINK, everywhere. Pink buttons, Pink thread, Pink yo-yos, Pink pins!! Cute socks with Pink presents, Pink fabric (which I will use when I make my completely Pink
cottage quilt) a darling pincushion, with, what else Pink pins. I also will keep all the Pink
ribbon! WOW!!!!





But there was one other special gift in the box, an angel, a soft sweet, perfect little angel, to be with me at all times, in my sewing/office while I work and play. I have decided that the vintage quilt it was made from was my great-grandmother’s. I used to play under her quilting frame. Sadly, there is not one of her quilts to be found, but now she is here to watch over me. Thank you Terri for your friendship and your kindness, it means so much.
