A Wonderful Surprise!!

Hubby came back from getting the mail today with a package for me. "Huh, what could it be?" I wondered. It was something from Kate!! Since I was stitching, hubby opened the package before handing me three carefully packed pressies.

*squeeee* Oh my goodness, you guys are not going to believe your eyes!! Kate make me pins!!! One with Hermie and the other with her hoop and stitching. Her sweet note mentioned that she sculpted the pin tops herself! How precious are they??! :D



As if that wasn't enough, she also made me a biscornu!! I love the colors she's picked and I believe she filled it with rice. Great idea!!




She said these beautiful pieces are a thank you for the charts I sent her from my surprise giveaway, but I think that her generosity is beyond the few charts I know she'll put to better use than I ever could. I am touched beyond words... THANK YOU, KATE!!!!!! :D

Oh wow!! They are amazing, Joyce!! Kate is very talented! I have to say, I LOVE Hermie!!!!! He is just too cute! :) A wonderful gift for a wonderful person! :)
Kate said…
I'm so glad you like them Joyce, now we have an official mascot for ISHW ;). I'm also glad others like them too, thanks for the kind words. Rice is a great idea for filler, but I didnt think of that, I used plastic pellets so it'd be heavy enuf. So thank you for a great idea in future! Happy Stitchin! :)
