Postie Happiness

The post lady has been so fantastic to me lately.  Do you remember when this table runner arrived?


It was a magnificent sample of Trudi's quilting skills as we were trying to decide on the quilting pattern for Stargazing.  Well, I finished her off recently with a cute little pink binding.  I struggled to find a binding that matched the blue dots or the green star points, but then I finally realized I had the perfect fabric!


I used the little pink strips left from the Stargazing back after squaring it.  I now have the happiest, most intricately quilted table runner I have ever seen.  It's all washed, dried and crinkly now.  I couldn't be happier.  Thank you, Trudi! (PS - I'm so sorry the photos are horrid. Just as I went outside to take the photos the rain started.  So sorry for the stinky inside shots!)


In other news, I received the nicest note from lovely Jerri, the Wool Shop Junkie, asking for more information on the Community Quilt about the quilt and its pattern, I tossed a few of the Community Quilt 2 inch squares into the post for her to start her own.  That's the spirit of the quilt, after all.

And what arrived in the post as a surprise thank you gift?  This cuteness!


How much do I love that card?  Adorable.  There was also a super nice note, but I won't share that with you.    And this!  This little pin cushion!


Oh my goodness I love it.  Jerri made this out of wool scraps wound in a circle and then she decorated the edges with flowers and beads.  How fantastic is that?  Jerri, thank you. You made my day!
