My Note from Traci
You will not believe the happy smile I have on my face.  I got a package in the post this morning!  You might be thinking why is she so happy?
Well it was from my swap partner in the Quilters Day Swap I took part in over on Handmade by Heidi.  Traci of Portland Oregon sent me a beautiful table mat made of hexagons in my favourite colours and a fat quarter of summery fabric.  Also included in my gift was a chocolate bar, Moonstruck from Oregon and a rose pin badge, which I will put on my sewing machine cover.  I already have a pin badge on there which is blue and in the shape of the US States and it says “United We Stitch”, which I got when we were in the US in 2010.
I will be firing off an email to Traci to thank her for the lovely gifts which has brightened a very wet and grey Tuesday here in Derbyshire.  Funnily enough Traci’s note starts with “Hello from rainy Portland Oregon” so I think the weather came with the parcel!
I love getting these sorts of parcels through the mail, so much nicer than bills.
Thank yo so much Traci for taking the time to make  and send these lovely things to me.
Have a great Tuesday and happy quilting.
