A Spring Surprise

Today I received a "spring package" from a very dear friend who lives in Holland, Marijke. She is the author of the blog Waar Nostalgie en Romantiek elkaar ontmoeten (Where nostalgia and romance meet) and she also makes some of the most beautiful animals and dolls I have ever seen.  You can visit her (HERE).  She was so kind to send me this package of "goodies" to use in my sewing just because.  The laces, ribbons, and buttons are simply gorgeous and I feel humbled that she took the time to do this as she is very busy right now with a book she is writing and the birth of her first grandchild, a little girl.  (I'm so excited for her...those of us who have been through this know how exciting it is when your first grandchild is born).  I wanted to take this opportunity to thank her for her thoughtfulness and the friendship we share, it means so much to me.  So, thank you Marijke for being my friend.  We would have never met had it not been for blogging.  I feel so honored to call her my friend.

Beautiful Antique lace, ribbon, buttons

This is some new fabric that I will be using to make up some new items for my shop...I love the colors.

Anna Griffin 100% cotton fabric
And these gorgeous silk sari strips will be used in the items as well.  Are you curious?  HA
Gorgeous silk sari ribbon 

Over the next few days I will be busy with sewing and I will be finishing up my spring cleaning.  The carpets will be cleaned tomorrow and then I can relax and enjoy the nice warm spring temperatures that spring brought us early.  After all, who wants to spend days like these indoors...not me!  What will you be doing this weekend?
