Gifts from the Heart

I'm sorry that I haven't posted anything for a few weeks...
We just made a big move from California to Arizona, and I haven't even turned on my sewing machine in almost two months!
We're almost completely set up in our new house, so I've been sewing again lately.

I have some dear friends whom I've met on Instagram and through my blog :)
Joanna is one of my friends, and she sent me this darling squirrel made out of one of my favorite lines of fabric, 
Bee Basics by Lori Holt, for my birthday.
We named each other "squirrels" because we go crazy for anything Lori Holt, or anything Fig Tree, or anything quilty or cute.
When one of us will post something, someone will type "squirrel" in the comments.
Just a silly joke!

This is one of my favorite background prints!

Joanna even personalized my cute little squirrel :)

I wasn't able to attend the quilt retreat with my Instagram friends because of our move, but Joanna sent me the gifts she made for retreats buddies anyway.
She painted these rocks, I just love them!!!

Isn't this the most adorable card?

Joanna's mom is an expert crocheter and Joanna gave us each one of her "love bombs".  
The yarn is so soft!

To top it all off, Joanna made each of us a USA banner and even included the cord and little clothes pins to hang it with.
Some of our instagram friends came 
from Australia and the United Kingdom.

 I am rich in my friends.
So many things in my sewing room have been gifted to me with love, it makes me happy when I look at them, and I know I am loved :)
