Surprise package.....

Yesterday was a cold rainy day until the mail person arrived and left this big padded envelope in my mail box!!!

I couldn't wait to rip it open...but I was very careful not to disturb the contents......when I finally got to see the surprise.......I was amazed at this beautiful summer table runner, from my sweet friend Barbara at "Way More Fun Quilting" Blog.
Also, inside was a beautiful card, with heart felt words on my dads' passing!
Thank you Barbara for your generous gift and your kind words.....they mean so much to me!
Barbara, had sent me the pattern and instructions on how to make this runner a long time ago, but not being a quilter...I don't like to measure things...I'm more of a free form, out of the box kinda gal...if things have to fit perfect in order for them to look good.....well, let's just say it will turn our funky looking for I never tried it....besides those of you who know me, know that I can't read and understand directions.....they get all jumbled up in my head, but now that I have a visual aid to help..I may just try to make one myself.....I'm not promising anything just yet!
I'm so glad I have friends who don't have a problem with this. Their work turns out so amazing and they are very willing to share.....I am truly BLESSED to know such wonderful ladies!!
I thank God for you and your blessings!!
