A Surprise Gift...

A few days ago I received a surprise gift from a new blog buddy, Karen from sewmuch2luv. Actually I knew she was sending me something, as she had asked me for my address, and told me she wanted to send me something. I was so surprised and happy! I was even more surprised when I got my gift. Such a nice presentation!

Here's the card and the gift! A dumpling bag and a vintage handkerchief! I love them! She knew I liked red and made this bag just for me. She actually showed the bag she made on her blog along with a beautiful apron she made & designed and I didn't have a clue. I don't know if she knew I also like americana (the card was perfect too!) 

I layed the items out to take more pictures and didn't realize what I did until later when I was editing them. Do you see it in the picture below? It's a mushroom! Karen, I bet you didn't know you sent me a mushroom, did you? Lol!  :)

Here's a better picture of the bag... I love red & polka dots!

And the inside... don't you just love that fabric too?!!! I'll have to figure out something really special to use it for.... huummmmm....

Thanks Karen so much for your kindness and sharing your talents with me! I feel honored! You made my week!

By the way... I just finished watching the season opener of "Two and a Half Men". Did you watch it? What did you think? I think they did a great job with it. At this point I think the show will continue to be successful. I don't want to give anything away in case someone dvr'ed it and hasn't watched it yet. My favorite part was the guest couple that used to have their own show. I loved it!

I did get some sewing done today. I'm almost finished with the apron for my swap buddy. Hopefully I'll finish it tomorrow... if all goes well.

Until next time...
