~*From a Dear Friend*~

Hello Friends! A treasure came in yesterday's mail... from my very dear friend, Ginger! She enclosed cards explaining these were belated birthday gifts... for me...

and for Trinity...

Oh my goodness! We were both glowing with glee!

My new pillow is so beautiful! I honestly had tears of joy when I opened it! The handwork is magnificent, perfect colors, gorgeous wools... it is just beautiful! I already have it displayed in the living room.

The new stash of toys was eagerly accepted! Plus, there was $10 in his card too! Good grief... who is more spoiled? Trinity or me? I can't decide!

Ginger is so talented and generous! Thank you, Ginger! We love our gifts! How can I ever return your generosity and kindness?

Our weekend was hectic and fun! But, it is time to get back to 'work' now... I've got small projects in the works to offer at our small town craft show in November... and I am still putting stitches in the second school house sampler... with hopes to begin the third soon... and I need to get items worked up for Early Work Mercantile that updates on the 1st... so time to get busy.

Wishing you all warm smiles,



  1. What a sweet thing for Ginger to do, I am so behind this year and still in a fog half the time, so hopefully I can catch up and surprise a few people.

    I took two days to finish it off. I started sewing by hand, then ended up using the machine to put the rows together. If you make a mini quilt, just sew by machine and then put your batting in and do hand stitching, will look the same and it can be done in a day.
