Sinterklaas in Spring

The doorbell rang. Through a little window in my door I saw the mailman.. Wow, a package!!



It's from my friend Dawn. She went to Paducah and asked me if I needed anything.
Well, offcourse I needed something. ---quilters always do hè ;-)---
I would love to have ecology cloth from Bellwether Dry Goods. I bought it last year and I love it. If they had a booth again this year I would love her to buy me 9 yards of the ecology cloth.
I couldn't find my redwork needles from Jeanna Kimball so if she find them, maybe she could buy me a tube... and maybe also Jeanna's new needlecase ??

After her trip to Paducah she emailed me that it was easy to find the stuff I wanted.



Now back to the mailman he handed me the parcel from Dawn. What a surprise :-)

WHAT A SURPRISE!! Boy, it looked like it was Sinterklaas in Spring...

This is what I asked for....


and this is what Dawn gave me! She didn't only buy me the things I asked for. She gave me also these presents, and she made me this adorable mini quilt and a lovely needle case!



Ohh Dawn , thank you so much. You made my day!

Lucky you!
what an adorable little quilt rack and quilt.
Jeana Kimball's needles are the best. I love her straw needles no. 11 for hand applique.
I am using the ecology cloth right now for a project and love it!

What a great friend! But I'm not familiar with ecology cloth - what is it? I do a lot of redwork so I might want to try it - after all I don't want another quilter to have something I don't!

Doesn't that tiny quilt on the rack look just perfect on your bookshelves! It seems that shelf was waiting for your little gift to arrive. It is wonderful to have SinterKlaas in the midst of our pretty summer weather here in Holland. Enjoy all your goodies!
