Suzie wrapped everything so pretty. I love this paper and I opened everything very carefully so that I can save it. There you can see a German postcard and some German hand lotion. I systematically opened the gifts largest to the smallest. I'm here to tell you that all were full of wonderful gifts. First, the star of the show... The Bag!
The fabric choices are perfect. Suzie hand stitched and appliqued the front and the back of the bag, it's fully lined and has a perfect little pocket inside. It cinches up really tight with the wooden beaded drawstring. I love it. I continued to open presents and was more amazed at each one! yummy chocolate!
Can you imagine my excitement when I opened these fat quarters of awesome red and white German fabric. Aren't they fabulous? and there's more!!!
Suzie also made this sweet little needle minder to match the bag, love the little stitches and needle. Look! a wrist pincushion that also coordinates. Love my reds!!Linda has done it again! She matched me up with a great partner. One who obviously is talented and put a lot of thought and consideration into what she sent me. The only clues I gave were: No purple, I love red. WOW, I am overwhelmed and very grateful. Thank you Suzie and Linda too!!
Tomorrow I'm heading down for another sew day at Holly's with Deb, it should be a wonderful day with lots of sewing, chit chat, food and laughter. I'm excited because Holly finished my quilt so that I can bring it home with me! Hope you have a good day planned also!
