I just love quilters. I always tell people that if you are lonely, take up quilting. You have an entire world of friends out there that you just haven't met yet. On the whole, they are kind and generous - not to mention a lot of fun. Very giving and thoughtful! I wanted you to see what one of my quilter/sewer friends made me for my birthday. The cutest little pin cushion with an attached needle case.
Pin cushion strawberries are very traditional, something I love. I'll have to show you my collection of pin cushions one day. I have lots. As a whole, quilters are also collectors of all things sewing and I'm no different.
Darcy is very talented. I have never met someone who quilts and sews as much as she does. Always busy. Thanks Darcy!!!
I went out to dinner last night with one of my newer quilting friends. We wanted to visit before we met some other gals for sewing. Jan knows I am a tea drinker and look what she made for me! No special occasion, just to be nice.
The cutest little tea bag case to keep in my purse! Isn't it the darling!?! Jan loves her embroidery machine and did the letters herself.
I wanted to show you what I got for myself for my birthday. I had seen this darling Scottie on Facebook and Etsy and I couldn't resist. Here he is sitting next to my Scottie heart pin cushion. I'm sorry he's difficult to see. Black Scotties, real or otherwise, are difficult to photograph.
The original one was sold, but I was able to special order one. He arrived last week all the way from England!
So like I said, it's the little things in life that count. Little acts of kindness that mean so very much.
Have a great rest of the week!
