A Great Snail Mail Day!

I checked the mail this morning and I had a ton, it had been a few weeks since I had checked it. But I really had some great surprises! I just couldn't get them opened fast enough. My sweet friend Gina sent me two packages from the UK. They were both loaded with lots of goodies. A delicious box of Belgian Chocolates, a romance novel, bath goodies, and a beautiful lace bookmark made by her. I was amazed at the tiny work in the bookmark. It's just amazing!

The second package was filled with these beautiful HORSE fabrics. As you all know I love my horses and I thought she was very thoughtful to send these to me. They are just so beautiful! I can't wait to make something with them. I'm thinking maybe a wallhanging or a quilt for my new house.
And last but not least....I recieved a wonderful pattern from Hazel. It is the pattern that she used to make her fabric covered notebooks. It shows two different sizes, so I will have to decide on which one to do first.

So a big THANK YOU to both of you wonderful ladies. It really means alot to have great friends like you.
