Good grief -- that little embroidered cottage is the cutest, right down to the little clothesline out back.


I'm so glad you like your Fabulous Mystery Gift! I have to tell you, that little house was a lesson in patience for ME!! Plan A was to create a pincushion rooftop. What you see is Plan E. (I'm not joking!! When I was cleaning up, I counted five rooftops scattered around my crazy workspace!) By Plan E there had been words. There had been duct tape. And yes, there had even been bloodshed. (Darn those new scissors!) In the end, I did see the humor in all that crafty drama, however, I'm so sorry that it's not a pincushion. It would have really added to the "fabulous" in "Fabulous Mystery Gift".

Thank you so much for your patience. It's so fun to see that little towel hanging in the cutest kitchen in all of Portland!



love it all but my fav is that cute little towel..:)


What a great gift - definitely worth the wait!!


Adorable! Jill is such a wonderful person and so talented. You're right - she nailed you!

First of all, I loved all the letter P's that you used to begin your entry. Awesome!

The package you got is great! Love that little tea towel! Too bad I don't live closer - I'd offer to teach you needlework stitches (if you actually wanted to learn, that is!). But anyway, enjoy all the goodies!


"J" is for jealous.
"H" is for I'm happy for you.
"C" is for so darn cute I can't stand it.
"D" is for you deserve it for all the joy you bring to your "peeps" (see, I can talk teenage, too)
"B" is for bye,
