~*I'm Spoiled!*~

Yes, I am truly spoiled to have such wonderful, giving friends!

Hello Dear Friends! Oh, I'm so thrilled to show you the gifts I received in the mail the other day! I'm spoiled rotten I tell ya!!!

I'm a proud member of the online group AAPG (An American Primitive Gathering... on Ebay). Each year we do a Secret Santa Swap where we exchange names and put together a box of goodies to mail to our friend. Bobbie had my name this year... and she went overboard with treasures! I'll say it again... I'm spoiled rotten!

Everything she sent me is so GREAT... I don't know where to begin!

She sent me the current issue of Sampler & Antique Needlework (a most wonderful publication!), some prim labels (oh how fun!), a bundle of linen, some needles, and some beautiful threads!
She stitched me a sweet Snowman pinkeep... ~*Merry Winter 1809*~... a pattern by Country Rustic Primitives... so sweet!
She stitched up a lovely penny rug candle mat... aaaahhhhhh :-)
I placed it in front of our Nativity for now. I think it looks very nice there.
If that wasn't all enough.... she also hooked up this cute guy! ~*Snow Guy*~... a pattern by Maria of Star Rug Company. Isn't he just glowing with cheer?!
Bobbie, thank you so very much! You really did spoil me! I just love each and everything... and am so touched by your thoughtfulness. Thank you!

Attached to the penny rug was this...

Wishing you all warm smiles... and holiday cheer...
