I was thrilled to participate in a sweet gift exchange, hosted by the lovely Adrianne at Happy Hour Projects. She paired me up with Shannon from I’m Working on a Project – I was happy to discover that Shannon is a very talented quilter, which is the one craft I KNOW I have no patience for, so I am always amazed to see the care and time people spend to make their gorgeous quilts.

On Thursday the 9th I had just sent off Shannon’s goodies (bad bad blogger, I had meant to send them earlier!!!) when I came home to find a box waiting for me. It turns out Shannon is not only good at quilting with fabric but she does a mean paper weave too, check out this sweet card!

She was also thoughtful enough to send something for my boys – OMG, right??

My sons have never tried shrinky-dinks (and neither have I!) so I am totally looking forward to trying it with them.

This pretty bag — the blue is more turquoise in real life, she knows about my obsession with that color — is destined to hold my makeup 😀

Shannon also made me stationery in my favorite colors of turquoise and green:

My favorite gift (I loved them all, but check this one out) is this beautiful, quilted hanging piece:

It now hangs next to my desk as a reminder of the wonderful people I keep meeting online.

I am so thankful for all these sweet goodies, and for having met Shannon — if you want to see beautifully worked quilted pieces, definitely check out her blog – hope your Valentine’s Day is a wonderful one!
