The Package Arrived

I've been waiting for this package. A few days ago I was visiting all of you and meeting a few new people. I found Mrs. Kwitty's Cottage. Great place. She is busy remodeling and she still has time to blog! Wow. And....she also sells on etsy, (fantastic stuff made by her and some vintage treasures) ....and has a etsy mini. In the mini, Mrs. Kwitty featured and item from 300nmulberry. It was this:A collection of great little treasures. A piece of old tablecloth, three old embroidered doilies in perfect condition, several hexagon quilt blocks, pink vintage fabric, vintage buttons, pink rick rack, pink grosgrain ribbon, and a little sachet.
And This:

An old vintage quilt top. It is all pieced, but never put together with batting and back and quilted.
Today they came in the mail.
I'll quilt the top. The rest has my creative imagination flowing, so I'm sure I'll do something wonderful with it soon.
And what was that on the table ? This is my work table / desk. I had a table base and added the top. Then I stained it and stenciled it. Just some fun stuff on the edges and a checker board in the center.
I've gathered boxes and trays to hold all that a work space needs. I'll show you more pictures of my workroom, (or is it a studio) another day.

That was a rather big box filled with a lot of treasures. The quilt is a find in itself. I am looking foward to seeing what you do with all your new goodies.

Wow--that really was a box of goodies! Thanks so much for the kind words--and I'm glad I was able to help you (in my small way) to find such a prize! Can't wait to see your quilt.
