Thankful on Thursday...

Well it has been quite a week...snow...running around... and bunch of goodies in my mailbox... I have lots to be thankful for...okay maybe not the snow or the running around...but the goodies have been wonderful!  In the order that they have come to my door...first goodies from Moda... I won a giveaway on Moda's Instagram ...Making it Moda...Colorful. Well you had to pick your favorite many of you who know me waaaaaay too well just shouted out "YELLOW"?  Oh you are sooooo correct! As my prize I received these goodies...

Three junior layer cakes from the Simply Colorful collection by V & Co., a layer cake of the newest Grunge fabrics (and oh how I love Grunge!), two charm packs Bella solids and Zen Chic's Modern Background - Ink, a great book by Vanessa Christenson of V & Co. featuring my favorite and the best color in the whole wide world...YELLOW...and a cute tin pin that says Moda that a hint that I'm certifiable?  Don't answer that. I also got another great handwritten card thanking me for my love of Moda. I don't know for sure but I think Carrie Nelson may have written the card...whoever did it I truly appreciate the goodies and the hand written note. The writer has lovely penmanship and hand written notes are to be treasured in this digital age, don't you agree? Thank you Moda for your generous giveaway!

Next delivery brought these goodies...

a beautiful card with another hand written note inside and this adorable, or should that be egg-dorable cross stitched piece!  This will have a place of honor in my Spring decorations The white on khaki color combination is an exact match for my living room!  It was stitched by my cloud friend, Barb from Wicked Stitcher... you can check out her beautiful work here. Thank you so much Barb...such a lovely gift!

And the final delivery which arrived today were these goodies...

a third card with  a handwritten note and the cutest little heart tin filled with what I call Jordan almonds.... the almonds with the pastel hard sugar coating. I have fond memories of these from all the Italian weddings I attended as a child... and I think they are very tasty!  These goodies came from Stasi of Bee-mused and Bee-Stitching... you need to check out her beautiful work here. Stasi use to manage my favorite cross stitch store, Twisted Threads. I was one of many who were very sad to see it close, but we have been able to keep in touch. Thank you Stasi... your thoughtfulness is very appreciated.

So I am one lucky lucky gal... lovely friends and lovely cards and lovely goodies! So very very much to be thankful on this Thursday  or any day of the week!

happy stitching-
carol fun
