Pay It Forward – Lovely Surprizes Arrived Yesterday

Every once in a long while, the mailman brings something besides bills.  Yesterday was that day.

Just look at the surprizes that were inside the package he delivered.

Aren’t they lovely!

Several months ago, I left a comment on Katherine’s “Pay It Forward” post over on her blog Sew Me Something Good.

And as if the above wasn’t more than enough to fulfill her promise to send a small handmade gift to the first three commenters, here are the treasures I found inside the zippered bag:

Notice that the strips of fabric on the back of the bag match the pin cushion.  And don’t you just love that strip with the cat peaking over the strip of fabric beside it.

You can find info on the little needle book on her post “Give your needles a pretty home.” I really like the idea of repurposing thrifted shirts.  The fabrics are just so beautiful.

Each little treasure, has found it’s way to their new homes amongst my sewing and crafting supplies.  I can’t thank Katherine enough.   Everything she sent was just wonderful and put together with such thought and care.

Oh and of course… you have to know that the chocolate didn’t last long.  🙂
