Helpful quilters worldwide

Today I got a GREAT priority envelope from Carrie, an absolutly stranger to me.
We met on a Yahoo group, where the American ladies talked about a magazine with a Bonnie Hunter pattern. I tried to get it here in Germany - no luck. I asked on the groupsite if somebody was willing to help - AND I got several offers!

Carrie offered to shop for me for other items as well and I asked for special notions: Kwik Klip (to safe my nails), Karen Buckley's Bigger Perfect Circles and her Stems, Steam-A-Seam and the fantastic C Thru Ruler 1x6 inches (perfect for drawing Dear Jane blocks and I misplaced mine)

Today I opened her envelope and found even 4 pieces of lovely fabric ( 2 Amish plain violet and yellow AND 2 bright pink / GREEN )
AND
tiny silver charms: a thimble, a sewingmachine, and a little "I love quilt" with a starblock - so cute !!!!

Many, many thanks Carrie - you are so nice!
tomorrow I'll show you some pictures, I promise

Hallo Brigitte.
Danke für Deinen lieben Kommentar. Du hast Recht, man kann nicht aufhören mit seinem Baby-Jane.
Deine Seite finde ich sehr gut und professionell. An meinem Blog tüftele ich noch. Aber er wird schon.
Liebe Grüße aus Trier.
