A posting and the postie

OK so I finally got the camera out and took a quick pic of the GJ block that I made.004  You know I was so darned pleased with myself, finally I was back on track - huh, I thought!  What a dumb****, I did the wrong block!  Never mind, at least it's done.
Today, along with the regular mail a wee 013 package from Canada found it's way into my mail box. Hee Hee, a parcel for me.  So, I contained my excitement long enough to get the camera and do the photy thingy so you could all see what the postie delivered.
Mmmm, return address, Kaaren from The Painted Quilt.  Oh blow this business of taking pics each step of the grand opening.  I just ripped into it.  Look what that wonderful woman sent to me016.  Firstly there was this beautiful ribbon embroidered pouch.  Look at the detail on it - it's gorgeous.  But wait, what is that I can feel inside?

007 Oh my goodness, looky here.  A needle case made by our own Kaaren - WOW, isn't it just gorgeous?  But wait, there's more...

Look at this little gem.  A new scissor fob - yeah, just perfect for the new wee pair of scissors I treated myself to when my fingers did the shopping on line.
Thank you Kaaren, these treasures will be used and will remind me of your kindness.
Technology has opened up a whole new world to us and our circle of friends continues to stretch right around the globe.  Isn't it awesome.
Have a wonderful week
hugs to you all

    Well done getting the GJ block done. There's a lot of hand sewing in that quilt.
