    A wonderful gift

    My friend, Kim, (dglvr) whom I met here on this board, sent me the best gift today. Lots of quilting templates!!!! And, the beautiful bedspread underneath them. I could not believe it when I opened the box. My pictures just doesn't do them justice. I am one lucky gal!!!!! Just one more reason why I love this board. I have met so many fellow quilters here that I would never have met in my life if it weren't for this board. I am truly blessed. I have made so many lasting friendships since coming here. I am proud to be part of this community.

    Awww...that was sure sweet of her! And the bedspread is drop-dead gorgeous! Did she make it herself?

    She found this in some yard sale items from a neighbor lady that passed away. Can you believe a family parted with this heirloom? And, Kim REALLY must like me to part with her find. But, she is a terrific gal.

    I know that rose technique. My Mom crocheted them so I know they are very dimensional. It is truly gorgeous.

    That is a beautiful crocheted bedspread, love the roses in varegated pink, make a coverlet years ago in that color.
    It is amazing that a family would part with that, so painstaking, real family heirloom. She did elegant work, her gauge is perfect, as well as sewing the blocks together, looks professional. What a blessing from Kim! The templates are neat too.

    Yes. It is crocheted. I fiddle a little bit with the hook. But, not to this extent. I'd never pick up that small of a thread to work with. I don't know what kind of thread she used but this stretches a little. Its not a yarn. Or a cotton thread. It feels wonderful!

    Oh garsh. Thanks Leesa for all the kind words. And everyone else. I'm so glad that bed spread has a great new home.
    There were 2 truck and 3 car loads of crafty items for me the have the Craft Estate sale. I found a few items like this that I put away for the family to take but they said no. I couldn't believe it. I took a picture of the yard sale standing behind the bedspreads and Leesa commented that those were beautiful so beings they didn't sell I was so happy to send 1 of them to a great new home. There were 2 so another neighbor took 1 too.
    I love this board and all it has to offer. Great friends and hours of enjoyment. Thanks Leesa for being such a wonderful friend. Enjoy.
    Kim

    I wonder if these are that old. The kids couldn't tell me anything about them. They said they had never seen them before. They were in a big plastic bag packed into a room full of crafties. The best part is they will not be put back in bags never to be seen now. That makes me smile.
