the postman rang

We all know about blog "give aways." I've won a few. But I got a package in the mail a couple of weeks ago that just knocked my socks off as it was a total surprise.
I've admired Lorrie's hand made needle books ever since she showed some of 
them on her blog. I love handwork and I was quite taken by these.
I loved the way Lorrie wrapped the little book in pattern paper! 
And included a sweet note saying she had noticed my interest in the 
little books so decided to send me one. So thoughtful of her!
Now I'm able to admire her tiny hand-done stitching close-up, 
reminding me of my long-gone talents in that area!
If you've never visited Lorrie's blog, Fabric Paper Thread
you should stop by! There's much richness and beauty there.
And thank you Lorrie for such a sweet gift!


  1. Hi Podso!

  4. OH! Random act of kindness, how totally SWEET of her!

    And that little surprise is so completely darling! WOW! YAY!!

  5. I showed that to Kayla. She just made a very simple one for herself. What a fun surprise for you!

  6. What a sweet surprise!

  7. I was just on Lorrie's Etsy shop page and when I came here I knew that was her handiwork! They are lovely aren't they?

    Very sweet gift!

  17. I agree with Michele...random acts of kindness...are the best! And I'd forgotten until I saw the picture, but I rec'd some beautiful handmade items from Creative Carmelina, and she wrapped hers in pattern paper, too. How appropriate! Very happy for you.
