Love the mail

Posted by PicasaWe have been up the coast for a bit of R and R
Nice to be home
Have been catching up with my Blog reading
Before we left I was so thrilled and surprised to receive this beautiful Owl pot holder from Teresa at All Things Vintage
I mentioned to her that my Quilting Group were called the Night Owls, so she "just had to make me one" An added bonus was one of ChookyBlues lovely cards
How lucky was I?
Thankyou Teresa
Love it
Too nice to use for a pot holder Just maybe it might become a mug rug
At the moment Iam just enjoying looking at it
Also waiting for me when I returned home was my Advent gifts from Wendy from Sugarlane Quilts
It has been lovely getting to know Wendy through this swap
So beautifully wrapped
Tomorrow I can open my first one
I forgot to take a photo of the gifts I sent to Wendy, but she has a photo on her Blog
