Best mail day ever!!!!

Okay, maybe not ever - the day I got my bar results can't really be topped, but a pretty darn good mail day today - I received not one but two packages - the first was my blocks from Jane's Halloween Swap - they are awesome. I can't wait to put them together. DH and I are going away for a long weekend at the beach so I will have to wait till next week to play though - and you will have to wait till then for a picture because I am in the middle of packing and can't find a clean surface to lay all 24 of them out on to photograph!!!!

The second package was from my Stitcher's Angel!!!! She sent me this gorgeous mini quilt:

The note that came with it says the saying means "Have a good summer". This picture is not the greatest because it was taken inside at night but I wanted to get it on my blog right away! I love stitchery and do some myself but mine is no where near as good as this! I don't know if you can see it in the pic below but the stitches are sooo small and consistent in size! I am definitely going to be emailing my partner for some tips on stitching!!! Also in the package was a nice note on a notecard with a picture of some scenery from Norway and a delicious chocolate bar that did not make it long enough to be photographed - oops!

I am just so thrilled with my new little quilt. Even though it is a "summer" quilt I will hang it year round - now I just have to decide whether to hang it here at home or in my office where I can look at it all day! Thank you Angel!!!!

Have a pieceful day!
