Special Gift

A package arrived yesterday all the way from the U.K.! My friend Sue (Quilt Times) made this table runner with matching coasters, along with a matching chicken. I've never owned a chicken, and certainly not a matching chicken! She also sent some Yorkshire tea bags. The table runner is extra special because she used blocks from my book. How sweet is that?!


And isn't the quilting beautiful?

Check out this little dude. He's so cute. I'm going to have to think of a name for him. Any suggestions? He wants to live in my sewing room so the cats won't eat him.

Thank you so much, Sue, for such special gifts!

Sue was kind enough to give me a sneak peek of the runners she made using your blocks. I think it is a fab idea! Happy Birthday to you today!! I hope others read this so they too will wish you a fun filled birthday!!

Just catching up on posts--company and travel and Thanksgiving meals took my attention for so many days.
Such a lovely gift from your friend Sue, with the pretty fabric and the impressive quilting. I hope your little bird is adjusting well to life in Florida. It's adorable.

Aren't surprises the best?? I love the table runner and the little guy is just adorable! Just had to stop by this morning, was watching TV las night and was looking through your book and I have finally decided on the quilt I am going to make, Barbed Wire! It was so hard because I want to make them all but Barbed Wire will be the first. :D Have a wonderful day, it is 6 degrees here this morning!!

You are one lucky 'chick' to receive this gift. The table runner is so pretty ~ the quilting is perfect for Barbed Wire, gives it just the right movement. Such a kind gift and now I want to make one, too!
