I love my mailman.....

Really I love my bloggy friends.  They are such warm, generous people.  And here is a picture to prove it.....



The pillow in the back right is a pillow cover from Mary at Quilt Hollow.  It's a Christmas toile with some coordinating fabric.  I didn't know they made a Christmas toile. I just love it!  Mary also sent a packet of cinnamon spice tea but I can't show a picture of it because I brewed and drank it within an hour of getting it!

Carrie at A Passion for Applique sent a cute appliqued (of course) snowman ornament that is on the left laying on a Christmasy fat quarter that came in the packet also.  Thank you, Carrie!

And the biggest surprise came today......a wonderful 36-patch (is there such a thing?) from Darlene at Quilting Daze made of Civil War fabrics.  It was such a surprise because I didn't know that she knew my snail mail address.  What a sweety she is.  I know exactly where it will go once the Christmas decorations come down.

Bloggers surely are special people.





On a sad note, Teresa at Stitchin' Friends lost her dear mother this afternoon.  She had temporarily stopped blogging back in November to spend more time with her mom.  Anyone that knows Teresa personally will agree with me that she is the most giving, generous, unselfish person around.


Blessings, Cathi
