I received a wonderful package from adrienne_bowers today! We both said we would go a bit over the 2 points; I went a bit over, but she went WAY over!  First, the hand-made items (made in her vintage style, which I requested):  a deer pincushion, made with vintage fabric and deer figurine, and a sewing notebook, which she assembled by hand and decorated the front in vintage Japanese style.  The little bird pincushion is handmade too!



Here's the inside of the book, with a crocheted pocket holding vintage sewing notions, and hand-bound pages for me to use for notes about sewing projects.



Look at all these extras:  a box of beautiful old buttons, three pins with cupcake tops, a box of ribbon, a vintage potholder, and a big piece of vintage fabric!



And that's not all!  Adrienne also included these pretty vintage linens.  I will have to think of something great to do with these.


Wow, thanks for all the beautiful things you sent, Adrienne!  I'm looking forward to using everything!

Here's what I sent adrienne_bowers; she has been too busy with work to post.  I made a sewing basket, a needlebook, and a tie-on felt pincushion, all in her favorite colors of pink and blue:



Close-up of the sewing basket.  I found some great, free embroidery patterns online, and she said she likes vintage nursery style, as well as lambs so this seemed perfect:

She also loves deer, and this vintage-style one was just right for the cover of the needlebook:



I also added color-coordinated sewing goodies to the package.  This was a lot of fun for me, because I love embroidery, and I got to work with a new style and color combination.

WHOA!   Maybe I shouldn't have pushed for pictures so soon!  Setting the bar pretty high, both of you!  I especially like the vintagey parts of the package adrienne_b sent, and I think the set of vintage embroidered items is just beautiful- I'm a Big fan of anything vintage like the things in both these packages.  Everything is just lovely - I need to get cracking this weekend to finish my items for my partner!! 

Thanks, Leslie - I'm so glad you posted pictures!   Cheesy

Oh my, these are awesome packages!!! Now I really need to sew harder, faster, better!

Love that little bird pincushion, I am really font of little things (maybe because I'm quite 'petite' myself) and the deer pincushion and that sewing notebook are so lovely too! What a great amount of spoilage you received Leslie! Amazing job by adrienne_bowers!
Heee, CMB did you notice those little pins with cupcakes??? Those are CUTE!

As for the package adrienne_bowers received, that is sweet as can bee! The little lamb and that little deer (it looks like Bambi to me) are so incredibly cute.... And you already know I love those fabric baskets! With a very familiar looking heart! Great extras too! Great job there, Leslie!

Now the standard is set, at a high level! We will blame you, Fiddle, for pushing for pics!  Wink 
Hahaha, no Fiddle, I was feeling the same way about the pictures not being post yet! I just didn't say it out loud!

If you say 'plz' because it's shorter than 'please',I'll say 'no' because it's shorter than 'yes'.
