Look what I found in my letter box

 Last year I had the privilege of working with a lovely group of ladies on a Crazy Quilt Needlebook Round Robin.

You can see the results of that challenge here.

At one of our meetings I lent the ladies a set of CD's I had that related to crazy quilting and promptly forgot about them.

I went to the letter box the other day and was surprised to find a package from one of these ladies.

The forgotten CD's were being returned but along with them this most beautifully executed
pin holder, crazy quilt style.

It measures 2.75 inches or 7cm across - I am in awe as I gaze at it.


What a lovely inspirational treasure for me to have, to hold and to use - thank you Rayna.

I made a pin holder in that shape in school in the 6th grade. You can tell how long ago that was simply because they taught hand sewing to the girls in school back then. I've never seen anything as pretty as the pin holders you showed on the blog, however. Just gorgeous!

Thank you all for your lovely comments. In this day of electronic communication we get less items in our letter box so this was indeed a lovely surprise.
