Brown Paper Packages

When brown paper packages arrive in your mailbox,

you know that it will be something special!


This is what was inside my brown paper package:



A lovely surprise from my dear friend Mary (aka- Quilt Hollow) !

Inside was this:
 

It is the most beautiful Red & White Toile quilted Christmas pillow cover!

She did an amazing job on this little gem!

Here is more "eye-candy" of the front:






The following photos are of the back of the pillow cover

and it is just as amazing as the front!








Somehow Mary just knew that the red toile would fit in nicely at my house!

See how well it matches my stockings:



Mary & I have been Blog Buddies from the very start!

You should take a peak at her blog. Her quilts are stunning.

Her home looks so warm and inviting (just like her). In fact I always tease her about moving in with her!

 We are like kindred spirits and she has given me lots of love and support from afar.

Thank you Mary from the bottom of my heart!

(This is a photo of the card that she sent to me

and I think that it sums things up for me.)



Until Next Time....Happy Quilting!
