Yesterday after returning home from my daughter's piano lessons this is what awaited us at the front door! I couldn't believe everything came at once! My daughter said it was like Christmas. The only difference being that its all for you, Mom! LOL! I had ordered some books and fabric recently. But, The biggest box was a Huge Surprise!!!! Back on February 19th I had visited Elaine (Faithful Quilter: Elaine's Journey) to thank her for visiting my blog and made the general comment that she seemed to have some similar interests. I wasn't actually entering the giveaway she was having.
But, apparently I was added to the list of entrants!! :0) (Thank-you Elaine!) It was a March Madness Giveaway!! On March 15th I found out that I had won. My husband said, "I think you won something!" I said "No it must be Junk mail, but leave it and I will look later when you are done on the computer." I am soooo happy that I didn't have him delete the message!!
Look at this lovely array of packages that were in the surprise box! Surprise box, because Elaine never said what she was giving away!! They are all so wonderfully wrapped!! I didn't want to open them.... Yes I did!!! :0)
WOW WE!!!!! This is what Elaine sent me!! I wish I could give you a hug Elaine and Thank-you in person!!!!! I never expected such wonderful gifts!!! I love to read! I haven't read "Tumbling Blocks" yet but look forward to doing so! I had heard about the "Antique magazine but had not seen it out yet! I'm so excited!! Elaine, how can I thank-you!! A puzzle with sunflowers on it! When my daughter saw that she said, "Mom, you love puzzles and sunflowers! How cool!" A bottle of "Sew Soft" moisturizing lotion, a needle threader, thread conditioner, needles, a pattern, 5" block sampler of fabrics from "Summer's Basket of Flowers" (beautiful), specialty chocolates (which I made quite clear, my daughter was not to touch!! LOL), and a French General sewing kit!. Elaine!! You over did yourself!! I love, love love everything!!!! Thank-you ever so much!!!!!!! :0)
