    As I sit here sipping my lucious, smooth mint tea from Cannyquilter, let me expound on the wonderful package she sent to me. I was so surprised that I had an international SP partner since I have not yet shipped internationally. This was my very good fortune!!! In no particular order, just the way my brain is thinking, she was most thoughtful and generous and sent FQ's, beautiful Cranston floral pillow panels and borders, lint rollers, bobbin keepers, British recipes for scones and flapjacks (very yummie sounding), gorgeous heirloom crochet patterns from her family collection, more teas Great Britian style which are better than USA style for sure, English Cadbury eclairs (chocolate and caramel), brochures of places to visit in England (where my ancestors are from and where I plan to visit in 2014), machine needles, postcard for my collection, and "WINEGUMS". OMG the gummy candies are phenomenal. I highly recommend. It was my intention to eat only "1", but when I opened the package and the aroma instantly wafted to my nose, I inhaled 3 right off the bat. You can see the ripped corner in the photo on both the candy and the mint tea bag. I'll try hard to savor them, but it will be nearly impossible. Lastly, Canny made me the most wonderful machine embroidered tote bag hoping to inspire me to touch the machine I have had for 1-1/2 years and have been too chicken to touch. It worked, I want to get moving on it. Thank you so much Cannyquilter (Eileen) - you made me a happy gal and I've many smiles ahead using your gifts. Big hugs from across the pond. Everything was "perfect".

    Drum roll please!!!! Here are the photos.

    Nice package Sharon, love the tote bag. I have that embroidered pattern myself but am waiting for my machine to get here. Those kind of special gifts would motivate me in a heartbeat!

    She sent me a cute little holder that opens like a match book with felt inside for pins and needles. Sew handy

    Oh-ooo, want to see my package? Pat Waters/AKA Scrapquilt sent me a luscious SP package. She sent me almost 2 pounds of fabric. She send yardage of the cutest coordinating frog fabric, solids that I had requested and really nice, big scrap pieces. She sent a fast yo-yo maker., darling labels, scissors and a nice fat package of cashews which seem to be missing.......hum-m-m. Unfortunately, I opened the box in front of my husband and son and they seem to have taken care of those. Darn it! I already have plans for the frog fabric. I love it all and can use it all, except for the missing cashews. Thank you Pat!

    That blue thing is a thing that "erases" the threads from the fabric after you rip a seam. I want one..!!!
