Grateful Thursday

These gifts came to me so unexpectantly! I went to my mail box the other day and found this soft package from the woman in NY, the woman for whom I have made my latest creation/art quilt. She had previously sent packages of fabrics for me to use if I wanted to (and I did, they were all so beautiful); but what was this? The art quilt was finished. I didn't need anymore fabric. So I was surprised and tickled to find this bag of gifts. The first is a beautiful Turkish necklace. The next is a Tzedakah Box from Israel (a wooden bank for collecting charity for Israel) with these wonderful Chagall like paintings on it by an artist named emanuel.
and two beautiful scarves from India. And a note that touched my heart. And she hasn't even received the finished quilt yet.!
Thank you, S.
I also received this delightful ABC ATC from Mim with the letter M for Mountains. Mim makes these cards with a fold over door that opens up to the picture card inside. So clever and well done.
Thank you Mim.
See all of our 2nd round ABC ATCs on our blog via my side bar!
There is a saying that it is better to give than to receive.
This week I gave
and I received.
And I can tell you
pretty darn nice!
