My First Crazy Exchange!

I was in a horrendous mood last night, trudging home in the near-dark after a day of dealing with obstreperous clients. But there's nothing like a surprise package on the doorstep to put a smile on your face and a spring in your step! The package was from Marne, from the Crazy Exchange (of which more below), and I was thrilled to be opening my very first exchange! Marne sent me a beautifully made quilt in blacks and reds and whites which is going to be a perfect centrepiece for the coffe table which H and I are going to be buying imminently (once we find the right one, of course...). She also sent along some stitching extras, some finishing fabric, and a notebook cover. She also sent along some wonderful stickers from Seattle, where she lives, and they really made me smile - having grown up not far away on Vancouver Island in south-western BC, the depictions of rain, Indian wood carvings, orcas and ferries all powerfully reminded me of home. Thank you Marne for such a lovely gift, I do so love it!!




The rules of the Crazy Exchange now stipulate that I have 30 days to post something I've made for Marne back to her. As well, she signed up for one of my PIF Promises, so she's now got two gifts coming from me, so I'll have to get my thinking cap on...


Have a wonderful weekend, and thanks for dropping by. Happy stitching!
