A Special Gift from JO

Yesterday I received a special gift from my long time dear friend JO. When I open the package a huge smile came to my heart because the whole lovely gift was given to me with "My Crazy Quilt Of My Dreams" in mine. There was vintage laces and laces with the theme of hearts, roses, butterflies, flowers and all in shades of creams and white. There was rick rack, ribbons with hearts and roses too. I was so surprise to see that one of the lovely ribbons was the same one I used around the Heart Photo of DH and me. There was also lovely silk fabrics in shades of creams and pale pink. I also found some lovely pearl beads and weee beetle and bee buttons to add to my garden theme Crazy Quilt. Jo also created a wee cloth quilt that says "Thinking Of You" with beads and buttons. I will hang it proudly in my sewing room. Jo also included Rajmahal Hand Sew Thread with Copper Core with Copper Metallic Coating. I have never seen this kind of thread before but I love it. Such a lovely and thoughtful gift. Thank you Jo from the bottom of my heart.
