Yippee! I Love Goodies in the Mail!

Yesterday I got the sweetest package in the mail. Susan of Homespun Quilts had a giveaway last week to mark her one year blogging anniversary. I was so blessed to be the winner of that giveaway, and oh boy, did I ever get some goodies!

Look at this little sweetie.

And better still, look what was inside that little sweetie. :) You know I love chocolate.

But the main event....

Was this beautiful mini-quilt panel that Susan had embroidered with her own design of a set of
babushka dolls, also called matrioshka or matryoshka dolls.
Aren't they gorgeous! I am so impressed with her design and her fine stitching. This is definitely going up on the wall in my sewing room. Thank you so much, Susan.
Spring has left the Houston area today. We are back in winter mode. Of course our winter is not nearly as harsh as many of you deal with in your location, so I won't complain. And we are getting a lot of rain, which we really need. Our little vegetable garden is planted now and this rain will help it grow, which is for sure a good thing!
Hope your day is just what you had in mind!
Hugs and kisses,

You got it, hooray. Well, I hope your warm weather comes back. We are having up and down temps too. But no snow on the ground and I hope I don't see any until December. Have a good day.
