What a lovely surprise!

It's a miserable wet and rainy day here in my part of England and when the postman knocked on my door this morning he was soaking wet but still managed a cheery greeting with a smile as he handed me an unexpected package.

Wrapped in an old dressmaking pattern was this delightful notepad covered in a fabric I recognised instantly.  It was from Sherry in Nevada City, who a few months ago won the second prize in my giveaway and when I sent it to her I enclosed a few yards of this fabric.

What a thoughtful, beautiful gesture this gift is - thank you Sherry, you certainly brightened my day - I love the notebook!   You've also given me a idea as to what to do with the rest of that fabric now!

Isn't Blogland a wonderful place to be!

That was a sweet gesture and what a fabulous little notebook. Who wouldn't love one of those with that colorful fabric! It's so cheery, it would make you want to pick it up constantly and write your notes.

I can see how it brightened your day, Sherry. Quite apart from the thoughtfulness of your namesake, it's such a sunny, summery fabric.

Hi Sherry: I am thrilled that you received your little package and that you liked it. I think it would be so cheery to put the grocery list in. I just love the fabric and had to think of something clever to thank you for sending it to me. Happy creating...
Now I am anxious to see what you make with your fabric.
