Okay I MUST steal/borrow that cross-stitch name Scrabble idea Shocked TOTALLY GENIUS!

Thank you and go right ahead and borrow it.  I first came up with this idea about 12 years ago when I wanted to make something unique for my in-laws.  I used their names, the names of their children and spouses and all their grandchildren, for a total of 26 names - that was quite the challenge to get it fit together but I managed and it's one of my favorite pieces I've done.

surprise partner pioneer9--you blew me away with your package!
you stalked me so much that you now know me better than family Cheesy

i never received anything like this quilt:



i really like birds on a wire--when i see them in real it just fascinates me. this is so wonderful--gorgeous!







if this quilt was the only crafting in the envelope, it would have been way way more than enough.
but bring on the dancing cat!

how cute is this?? oh i love this feline plushie to PIECES!

and then there was this burst of sun pouch


and inside was this:


even as i'm uploading the pictures and posting this, i have to say that i'm still overwhelmed.
thank you so so much!

Wowsa, pioneer9!  What a wonderful package you made for Susan!  The quilt is so cool and interesting; as Susan said, that by itself would have been plenty.  The cat!  Too fun!!--and so Susan-ish.  The pouch is great, and the necklace is just lovely.  LUCKY Susan!

Lookit - I received an awesome rainbow tote from leslieshappyheart! It's so cheerful and well made (plus look at all those rainbows).



Oh, and there was chocolate in it, so what's not to love about that? Wink

Thank you so much, Leslie - this was such a great surprise, and I love it. As you can perhaps see from the pictures, I'm already using it. Cheesy
