Not only did Mel send a cottage...but she sent a beautifully wrapped package with lots of goodies inside!
The little bird ornament is just precious...he is going to hang in my sewing room all year round...as is the lovely door-hanger with my initial on it! Mel included a table topper pattern with some lovely holiday charm squares to get started, and I also received one of her cute sanitary napkin bags with "undie" fabric (if you haven't seen them on another blog...go look...I forgot to put the picture in my collage)!
Somehow, Mel also knew that my quilter's candy jar that I keep on a shelf in the sewing room was empty--she sent lots of Dove chocolates and Werther's to help fill it up!
And here is the cutest little change purse/cell phone holder that I won in a giveaway from Joanna at Applique Today. I kept forgetting to post about it because it went into my purse as soon as I received it! Joanna has a delightful blog and is sewing every day!
I hope there is lots of sewing going on wherever you are!
