Look What I Got!

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?

DJ Stuff and Another Party

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…….

Thanks, Brenda!

Hugs,
Barb
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!
