A Gift And Today's Class...

If wealth can be measured in loving friends and family, then I'm rich
beyond measure. Over the years that I've been blogging, I've "met" 
some truly loving and generous new friends. I've written about many
of them in the past, so my friend in today's post will not be unfamiliar to
you. Her name is Sherry and her blog is Createology. If you haven't
visited her site yet, you don't know what you're missing. She's so kind
and generous, and today I'm sharing just another example of her talent.

Last month, I sent a little gift to her and was honored to find a lovely
post she wrote about it (here).  When I sent my package to her, I really 
didn't do so expecting a gift in return, so you can understand my glee
to find a package in my mailbox from her on Valentine's Day!
When I opened the box, the contents smelled of cinnamon and spice! Inside I
found a stacked pillow pincushion sewn in a linen-colored fabric.They were tied
together with a red grosgrain ribbon, and topped with a white, sparkling pinecone.
 Sherry completed her gift with three handcrafted, beaded pins and
a sweet note. It was a thoughtful gift from her hands, and I'm so
grateful that she made it just for me. Thank you, dear friend.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
 No Coffee Club for me this weekend. 
Today, I'm the student, taking a class sponsored by our quilt guild.
I'm going to learn the "Quilt As You Go" technique.

The fabrics that you see in all the photos with Sherry's pincushion are
the fabrics that I'll be using for my project. I'm looking forward to trying
this technique, and we'll be creating a traditional "Drunkard's Path" pattern.
I firmly believe we should never stop learning, so this should be a lot of fun!

Sweet pincushion, Donna. I wanted to ask you about the heart pincushion by Susan Piloto. Does she have a shop? Enjoy your class........Sarah

Hi Donna, Enjoy your darling pin cushion and your class. I will be looking forward to seeing more about it. It won't be long until I will have more time on my hands with my job coming to end. The business is closing. Have a wonderful weekend. Hugs and Prayers Your Missouri Friend.

Donna Dear you are very welcome. I must confess I purchased the little pincushion to place the beaded pins into. Friendship is precious and I am grateful for blogging bringing us together. I love learning too and know you will enjoy your class. Looking forward to seeing what you will be making. Creative Hearts are Happy Hearts...
