Taken by Surprise and Tuesday Treasure

I have had some lovely surprises over the last couple of days.  My package arrived from Melody @ The House on the Side of the Hill on Monday. What a sweet little surprise....a piece of adorable fabric, embroidery fabric, thread and buttons, a scissors fob and a gorgeous little stitchery book from Michelle Ridgway. Thank you so very much....I love it all!

Today I went to my sewing group and listened to a demo on Sashiko. It is not something that I have a yearning to do but one of the ladies there did a tour of Japan a couple of years ago and has done nothing but Sashiko since she returned....totally addicted. It was interesting and I certainly admire her work. And then it was time for another suprise.  As some of you may remember, it was my birthday a couple of weeks ago but I have not been to sewing group in that time so Kaye, from Apatchy Quilting, had a birthday present waiting for me.  A couple of  devine fat 1/4s, buttons, stitchery pattern, key ring and notepaper

These little things really lifted my spirits this week and made me think of all the lovely people I have met and befriended through this craft that I love and this week they are going to be my Tuesday Treasure along with some amazingly talented lovely ladies I have come to know via blogging.

Oooh, one more piccie....Lila has taken to sitting on the chair I use when outside visiting with my girls.  She is one quirky pooch!!!

 Hoping to get some sewing done tomorrow!
