Generous by Nature

When I read about all the charity blocks,quilts and items being sent to various places, including the flood victims here in Qld Australia, I think all quilters must have very generous natures indeed!
So when my friend, Maria (all the way over in Western Australia) sent me... not 1 ...not 2 ....but 3 ...Blankets of Love this week... well... I knew for sure there are no nicer people around!
Here is a few pic's of these little BLaNkEtS Maria forwarded...
aren't they just BeAuTiFuL !!

I also received two parcels in the mail this morning. One was from my Valentines Day apron swap partner "Apron Crazy" who lives in the USA. She made me a full apron and enclosed a few nice treats for me to enjoy. I mailed hers on January 31st and I added some goodies too. So this is what "CrAzY" can expect to find when she opens her package.

Pink roses fabric with hearts applique.
Heart applique.

Valentine Mug Rug.. Heart buttons.. Friendship magnet.. Lavender sachet.. Heart ribbon..Chocolates & a Card.... and of course the apron.
And this is the pretty "ApRoN" I received together with all the goodies.

Tree of Hearts Fabric

So pretty & cute.

I'm so lucky to have a partner like CrAzY.
And in the other package Leona from "Leona's Quilting Adventure" sent me the fabric I was lucky enough to WiN in her giveaway. I am looking forward to using this beautiful fabric on a special project in the future. ThAnKs Leona for hosting and for picking my name from the hat!

A wonderful selection of Fabric.... and a pair of pillow cases.
Now that all that dreadful HeAt has passed...(at least for now).. I can get some sewing done.
It was just tooo hoootttt in my room for anything crafty. Hope the weather is being kind to you where ever YoU are!

Quilter's are a giving group for sure. Love all your swap goodies - received and sent. Congratulations on your winnings - hmmmmm more goodies. I love 'squishies' - but I think I love sending more than receiving - oh , they are both fun.

I also appreciate the generous nature of quilters. I think the most fun thing in the world is to give something to someone else, esp. something you made.

I LOVE that tree heart fabric on the apron!
