A lovely gift from Patricia, and a lovely award from Linda,

So many good things have come to me through blogging. I get a chance to express myself, a chance to show some of my stitching, and a chance to find other interesting people. The one thing I did not expect,and am just completely filled with gratefulness for, is the friendships I have been blessed with since finding this world of bloggers.
Waiting at my post office was a package from Patricia at Vintage Linen Treasures, http://vintagelinentreasures.blogspot.com/ .
What a surprise to open and find this beautiful wrapped gift!
Enclosed was this beautiful embroidered pillowcase that I had admired while visiting her shop. Also enclosed was the sweetest card telling my why she had sent it to me. The reason......she is just plain out sweet and thoughtful!! And I am blessed to know her....through blogging. Thank you once again Patricia, I will treasure this! If you don't know Patricia and the wonderful things she has to show, go visit her blog! You will be inspired.

Another wonderful blogging friend is Linda from Somewhere In Time http://somewhereintyme.blogspot.com/ who has honored me with this sweet award. Thank you Linda. Go visit her blog filled with such sweet and inspiring things to look at. The rules are for me to pass this to six other bloggers, so here goes......
