Saturday Surprises

Isn't it a wonderful feeling when you open up your mailbox and inside there is something special that you were not expecting.
I had that feeling Saturday.



I was the winner of a giveaway of 5 issues of Primitive Quilts and Projects magazine from Carmen over at Cardan Antiques and Needlework Blog. They are beautiful magazines. I love some of the designs in them. Thank you Carmen!
The other package was from Cindy over at Cindy's Cross Stitching Ornaments and Projects Blog. She has been a blog friend for many years now. One of my first blog friends.



Cindy always sends me a little something at Christmas.


Look at the lovely ornament that she stitched for me. It is now decorating my mantle. Thank you Cindy, I love it!

I am a lucky girl!

I hope that everyone has had a great weekend. It is over too soon!

Thanks as always for checking in on me and for your kind comments.
