Stitcher's Angel Swap

Look at the beautiful things I got in my Stitcher's Angel SWAP from Lesley Ann!
The first thing I saw when I opened the box were these two smiling women! They said...Welcome to your surprise!
At the bottom of the little fabric bag were these handpainted American flags....tears came to my eyes! I swear! I'm PMS but I"m also feeling so wonderful about these elections! And during these moments in history...I feel a bit homesick!
These are the wonderful gifts Lesley Ann made for me! I love the warm reds and golds! So cozy and they match so many of the areas in our home....just perfect I will use them with a smile! She sent a pattern for me to try out fun things to create!
Her attention to details made the gifts even more special....can you read the sewing quotations on the little cards? The pin cushion has a different design on each of the four sides....and it smells good! (maybe Lesley Ann will share with us what's inside!)
I christened the coaster right away....first I spilled coffee on it, then juice! (I'm never so clumsy...why my new coaster? is it washable?)
This wasn't all she packed in the post will show you what she sent to lucky Ms. Maya!

I am glad that you enjoyed your surprises!! The coaster is definitely washable but I probably wouldn't dry it in the dryer. I stuffed your pincushion with lizard bedding...yes, I know, its wierd; but that is what it is and was recommended to me! Funny!
