I got a lovely surprise in the mail!

A beautiful surprise!
A while ago, Susan @ supermomnocape started chatting back on forth on our blogs. She's got a great wealth of knowledge about saving money and not suffering through economizing. Susan is also a talented writer and an amazing textile artist.
I once sent her a little parcel that ended up cheering her day, and didn't she just send me one that lightened my mood considerably as well. It arrived on Tuesday.
Susan made me a lovely drawstring project bag, a sewing companion for my scissors and needles, and sent along some fat quarters from Moda's Fig Tree Buttercup range. It was such a surprise and so lovely of her to think of me.
I have been blogging for two years this month, and feel very blessed to have "met" so many wonderful souls like Susan.
There is a lot in my life that keeps me close to home, and I'm okay with that for the most part. However, my bloggy buddies -- in all the various part of the world -- have expanded what I know beyond these four walls. They help me learn new things, let me show off my work, and quite frequently, lift the bad moods that easily hover around my door.
Someone once asked me why I liked blogging, and didn't it matter to me that these weren't "real" friends? I thought about it for a minute. Here's what I decided: The world is big, the world is vast, and now the world is virtual. Real friends applaud your achievements, listen to your troubles, and laugh with you. My bloggy buddies tick those boxes. I am profoundly grateful for them.
So thank you Susan! As you know, this package went a long way to putting a smile back on my face. Hugs!


  1. I love my bloggy buddies too, and in fact am happy to number the lovely Susan amongst them, thanks to the equally lovely Miss Nancy! I sure do hope we get to meet her sooner rather than later! I have an envelope ready to mail her as well ... no photo to blog though until she gets it :D

    And now it's off to bed for this old gal - 5:15 a.m. comes awfully early - and you can be sure the only reason I don't mind getting up at that impossible and unGodly hour is my Buffalo jaunt, LOLOL!!

  2. You are more than welcome, Nancy. I'm so glad you liked your surprize gift.

    And I couldn't agree more... virtual friends are real friends for which I am truly grateful too.

    Aloha hugs, sweet friend.

  3. Oh how lovely, such a nice surprise! I adore that angel stitchery - I made one for my best friend as I think it's just so true.
