Lookie what I got...

Wow, I was blown away when this box arrived on my porch last week...I had signed up for the Humble Heart Swap over at Bumble Bee Lane Cottage... Amy holds the absolute best swaps in blogland. She takes so much time making sure they go off without a hitch and that everyone is happy...there's a great core group of swappers and they are all so generous which brings me to todays post.

I was lucky enough to get Amy as a swap partner this time and I couldnt be happier...she is so doggone generous and she puts so much thought and care into everything she does !

OK, on with all the yummy stuff she sent me...she knows how to spoil a gal !

WOWZERS...I just LOVE everything !!! Here are some close-ups....
Look at this adorable little yummy smelling lamb in a nest of natural lambs wool...TOO SWEET !
Then there's this adorable little pin keep trinket box Amy made me filled with old buttons and a beautiful old thimble....sorry the nest picture isnt very good...time for a new camera maybe ?
Such a pretty old thimble !!!
And look at very first piece of Redware...HOORAY...I have been dying to acquire some of this....Now I am officially collecting it !!!
Of course Amy knows my love of all things patriotic so this little flag pillow tuck is pure perfection !!!
She also sent this lovely (and VERY large) rooster tea towel that I just love !!!
I was also blessed with some beeswax lip balm and a wonderful snowman magnetic tablet....again, she knows me so well and knows I adore all things snowman related !!!
Last but not least was this adorable little heart pillow tuck made of what looks like an old quilt  !!!

Well, did she spoil me or what ????? I was blessed to be her swap partner but doubly blessed to be her friend. She is a truly amazing woman and I am grateful to know her. She has touched my life in more ways than she even knows and is everything you could ever want in a friend...and guess what ? I dont even know what she looks like or the sound of her voice...friendship takes many forms and as many of you already know, sometimes cyber friends fill a void in our lives that really no one else can...I am blessed to have a few of those friends and Amy is indeed one of them...she's also the very first friend I ever made online and for that I am truly grateful and blessed ! Thank you Amy !!!

Well gals, that does it for me today...make sure you check in and sign up for my big 5 week Anniversary Giveaway with new prizes every Monday and also check my WOOL FOR SALE page...lots of new wool bundles and some fat quarters are up and ready for sale !!!

Until next time,

PHM February Update Today

Hi there my primitive friends...I know its been such a long time (a month to be honest) but things here have just been, well, busy. I have to say having the hubs at home all the time is VERY different since he has worked 70+ hours a week for the last 10 years but can I let you in on a little secret ???? I LOVE HAVING HIM HOME SO MUCH...He is my very best friend and we have always loved spending time together and once he finds a new job I am going to be sooooo lonely again.

Ok, so even though I love having him home, gosh I cant seem to get anything done...I thought I would be more focused with him here and having to have dinner made so much earlier and everything, but well, not so much. Add to that the fact that I sprained my wrist and I have gotten next to nothing done...Well, maybe next to nothing is a stretch...I did get lots of new wools over dyed and listed so be sure to pop over to my WOOLS FOR SALE page and see what I have done.

Then, please stop over at to see what all the gals have made this month with our Easter theme...I continue to be amazed that I am allowed the honor of being in this group of such talented women. This month I made a cute little wool pillow with a hooked little's a sneak peek...

I also wanted to tell you about the Hungry Hook Primitives Spring Fling Giveaway that will start this weekend and the winner will be drawn on March 1st...Heres a sneak peek on one of the prizes I have in mind....

Well, I need to scoot....gotta try to get some sleep before everyone gets oldest son and his girlfriend have been here since Sunday which has been wonderful but they are heading back to Virginia tomorrow...

Grace to you,
