Holiday Booty Swap and Gifts

I was not at all aware that my Holiday Booty swap partner was my friend Cindy.
What a surprise and a delight to receive such a wonderful package from her.
She was more than generous and I am still in awe of all the wonderful and useful items I received.
To start I received a fall wall hanging which is what I requested as my quilt. Cindy picked a designer that I love ( Pat Sloan) and she did a beautiful job quilting it. I am studying the quilt so I can quilt my future pumpkins that way too!
She sent me a unique set of buttons that are shaped like sewing tools. I am going to have to design something special so I can use them soon.
Delicious butter cookies, a porcelain thimble from Ft. Campbell-being prior military , I definitely appreciate this , a scented home spray "Scentsy" from a company that she is working from and a blue gift that I had to put under the tree.

Cindy, thank you so much.

I also received a magazine from my friend Debbie in Canada for me to read as I recuperate from my gall bladder surgery.
I am so blessed to have such wonderful friends.

And last but not the least, I have to thank my friend Toni for hooking me up with the best Holiday Booty swap partner and for hosting a wonderful swap.
