I feel so special...

when I get packages in the mail!  
Today the mailman delivered not 1 but 2 packages addresses to me!!!

First was a sweet package from my Pin Cushion Swap partner, Kelly!  I 'met' Kelly through the Charming Girls Quilt Club which she organizes and runs! I have so much respect for all she does. She pays attention to all the details...even wraps with fabric and pretty ribbons! 

Look at all the goodies she sent! I absolutely love, love, love the pin cushions! Beautiful fabrics and beautifully made
Kelly also sent 2 charms of Lovely by Sandy Gervais 
{I really love Sandy Gervais' fabric designs}
2 Schnibble patterns...Joy Luck and Jacks by the ever popular Miss Rosie's Quilt Company, 
and a bag of extra fine glass head pins! I will put these to very good use!  
Thank you so much Kelly!!! 
A thanks to Kris at Dandelion Quilts for organizing the swap 
{even if I didn't do such a good job at keeping the dates correctly in my head}.   

The second package of goodies came from Susan at Super Mom - No Cape!
On March 12th, she was celebrating her third blog anniversary with a give away and I won!  She made this lovely little gift bag and said that she would fill it with goodies! 
Oh boy! Did she ever! 
And she customized the goodies to things she found on my blog!

I had recently posted about my love of buttons...and she included a little fabric bag of lovely buttons! She took note that I enjoy stitchery and included several skeins of embroidery floss.  She made a lovely scissor and needle holder...with my Word for the Year...JOY! She also included a journal and matching magnetic pad of paper, and 2 boxes of chocolates {one with raspberries my all time favorite!}
 Thank you so much, Susan!
I do feel special today!
