Click on the pink bedding

I'm finally feeling back to normal. Or at least, almost back to normal. I'll share the "almost" another day. Right now I really need to get out a HUGE "Thank You!!" to Georgianna also known as A Sunday Girl. While I was struggling with being an invalid, I received the best pick-me-up. I was the very lucky winner of her give May away!!

After I ripped through the envelope, I found this sweet little package and a stack of beautiful quilt squares. Now, when I say this fabric is beautiful, I really mean pass-out-on-the-floor gorgeous! I'll get to that in a bit.

Wrapped up in pink tissue and a satin white ribbon was a stunning flower pin. This hand made flower is done in folds of fun fabric. I have to tell you that the workmanship is amazing! The work that went in to this shows in the quality of the piece. It has a little pin/clasp thingy on the back so you can pin it to a hat, sweater, jacket, purse, etc. I've already worn it on my shirt and is adorable on my straw hat. It adds the perfect touch!

I tried to get a close up of it to show the workmanship, but the photo doesn't really do this pin justice. I love the colors! They're so bright and cheery, yet they don't look too "young" for me. The color combo is perfect!

This last photo show some of the amazing squares Georgianna sent. I've never made a quilt in my life, but I'm sure gonna give it a try with these. The squares are perfectly cut and the fabric is beautifully coordinated. I'm not an expert on fabric, but you can feel the quility in the cotton. You have to check out her blog, Bumbleberrie Quilt Shoppe & Boutique. It's a great blog full of pretty ideas and lots of eye candy.
She also has an Etsy shop that you can access through her blog or just click Bumbleberrie Boutieque to get you there faster. She's got beautiful hand made items, theeee most beautiful fabrics and so much more. Her shop is full of wonderful treasures, so be sure to take your time to shop and browse.
Thank you, Georgianna, for the wonderful give away.
Patricia :o)

I love the flower pin and the fabric squares are beautiful. Georgianna does excellent work.

I am back to doing everything I normally do. I still have some soreness but my doc said it actually take 6 months to heal completely. I'm just happy 6 weeks has passed ( actually 7) and everything is back to normal. But there are times when I wish I could rest just a bit more....Take care and I hope you have a wonderful week.
