What a Nice Surprise

Yesterday, after I got home, I found a surprise in my mail box. 

My friend Em, sent me a package.  In this package was a sandwich box. 

Curious... I open it...

And look what I found!  
What a nice surprise!  A pretty blown glass heart necklace.  

Em, always has a way to bring a smile to your face - a kind word, or gesture.  I think she lives to bring a smile to someone.  :)     Thanks Em!!     PS... I think sandwich box is a cute and novel way to give a gift. :)


I started on my handbag today.  I decided to change up the pattern a bit.  To some you that isn't a surprise.  :)   

I couldn't find the quilted fabric, the pattern called for, or at least none that I liked. So I picked fabrics out of my stash and quilted the sides.  I added pockets to the outside, with a contrasting trim.  I plan to add pockets on the inside and make a matching organizer to go in it.    I will post pics as soon as I get it done.  

I also crocheted two dishcloths today.  I have paired them with the flower dishcloth, to make a set.  I plan to add coordinating scrubbers to them. 

This set will go into a "Moving" gift basket, for a friend who is moving out of of state, in the next week or so.



What five things will you always find on you?

 Have a great Sunday!!

God bless and keep you,

My answer to yesterday's question:  The nicest thing said to me... a friend recently told me, the first time she saw me, she saw the love of God shining through me.  That, blessed me beyond words.

Beauty of Giving
