From an Irish friend!

Today I got a beautiful package all the way from Ireland! I received it from Micki, a blogfriend who owns the beautiful blog Irish muses. She also quilts and as you know, I only started sewing last summer and my dream is one day to make a red-white American quilt. It's hard to find good books in English on quilting here in Israel (or in Hebrew). Israelis are not really quilters and there isn't such a thing as a quilt fabric store in my area. And than, in the package today Micki send me a book for beginning quilters, Quilt in a Day! And she had packed also a delicious Irish chocolate bar in it and an adorable Irish sheep! How fun is that? Thank you so much my friend!


I have send her something in return from Israel, hope she likes it :)

The only thing nicer and more fun than finding a surprise in your mail box is sending one to someone else. Aren't friends just fantastic? Hugs, Mollye
