I am spoiled :)

I am surely a spoiled lady...I received the most wonderful mug-mat from Finn, one of her special crocheted fabric creations! It is already being put to use, I love it. It is so dense and absorbent, just the thing for a cool drink or cuppa coffee.
AND...A hand-quilted quilt! It is in the place of honor, on the front of the roll-top desk. This beautiful quilt is hand-quilted in the tiniest of even, fine stitches, and is made of Christmas fabrics. It hangs so flat and straight, and is so pretty. I will cherish it always. So, thank you so much Finn, for a marvelous surprise! Loved it so much.
I am off today for the first day in many days...and I just feel wiped out! Hopefully I can achieve something today...naps sound great. But the laundry is calling..."Julie, Julie, come and finish me up!". So, I am doing that.
Hope this finds everyone having a super good day!

That is a special gift indeed! I tried some 'Finn crocheting' but O my it made my hands hurt so I stopped. Never thought about using the roll top to display a quiltlet. Thanks for the idea.

It is always great to receive gifts. You got some great ones and useful too. Finn is very creative.

Have a fun week!

Bless your heart, it sounds like you need a total 'duvet day' as my friend Lynda would call it.

You deserve to be spoiled indeed you have been. Wowie! I'm happy for you Julie.

Happy happy happy!!!

You deserve a nap! The laundry will do itself with just a little help from you. Nice gifts for nice Julie.

What lovely gifts, and it couldn't happen to a nicer lady! Since I am rather behind in reading, I hope you enjoyed your days off - I am looking forward to seeing what you've sewn.
