I have been blessed....................

I have been blessed with a new friend.....MARY at Quilt Hollow sent me this little gift.....just cause....She sent me a sweet little hanging heart....so cute. She also sent a little Redwork Kit.The card is a pattern with Mr&MRs snowpeople.......Needles in a matchbook,thread and a neat thread holder.I have not done any redwork, but now I can try it. Go look at Redworkplus.com.They have some neat things.
This is the needle match book closed up and the thread tin,called "The String Thing"loaded up with floss.There is a magnet on the lid to hold my scissors........
This all came about when she posted on her blog that she was beggin for fabric........I found and bought a 1/2 yd of it.When I emailed her she had already recieved it from someone else that day in the mail...... No problem,I am glad to have it.........Next thing I know I get this little gift "just cause".......
MARY,
You are a blessing and new friend..........Thank You!
