I have the best friends. It’s not even my birthday. But last night I received a special gift.
Isn’t the gift bag pretty? And it was such a surprise! My dear friend, Brenda, who reads this blog and isn’t even a quilter got me a really fabulous gift.
I know you’re anxious to see what was inside. I love building the suspense…..
OK, OK….. it’s Pinmoors! Remember when I showed them to you way back here?
OK – so it wasn’t that long ago. Way, way, way back on December 31. Hey, it was last year. Anyway, Dear Brenda saw that post and just thought I needed some. I love my friends.
See how they work? I used this fabric to show you the pins because it came from my friend Suz at our guild Christmas party. And I just like it.
But they really show better on this nice muslin. I can hardly wait to quilt something so I can really use them. They turn ordinary pins into instant safety pins. No more bleeding! No more poked fingers! I might just use them for everything.
Aren’t they cute up close?
So cute I had to show you one more. I love up close shots. I used lots of different pins so you could enjoy all the color. It’s just the kind of gal that I am. Bringing color into your life.
Did I mention I have fabulous friends?
NQIT’s birthday is just around the corner. But I got a special present last night. I have the best friends in the whole world.
And I can’t believe I now have to share my fun quilting things with Dear Hubby. Alias NQIT. He’s already planning how to use my new Pinmoors…….
P.S. For those new to the blog….. NQIT = New Quilter In Town
I’ve heard that if someone has great friends, they must be a pretty good friend themselves. I think that applies to you. (I’m not just saying that because I’m your friend. . .ok maybe I am.)
You are welcome, Dear Barb! Cindy is right. It takes a good friend to know a good friend.
‘Happy Birthday’ even if it’s not your Birthday! Special friends deserve extra ‘special’ days…………………and fun surprises!!!!!!!
Hey, Barb – you are deserving of a super special gift like that – birthday or not! Look at the entertainment factor you provided your followers with – and now how many of us will run out and but those Prevent Pin Stickers just to play? Neat bag too — love that part especially!
