Don't you love surprises?

I absolutely love going to the mailbox and finding an unexpected surprise hiding in there. It probably goes back to those days as a kid when you'd get a card or something from an aunt or family friend who lived out of town. It was always such a thrill! And today it's just such a delight to find something other than a bill or junk mail in the box. Well, I had one of those fun surprises this morning!

The super sweet and incredibly talented Nova of a cuppa and a catch up sent me the most darling little gift. If you remember, she made that fabulous quillow a few weeks ago? (She's posted the tutorial here...)

Well, she had some scraps left over and she sewed me up a really special little pin cushion. In her typical way, each part of the little truck is better than the last. Look at the little pooch in the back. What a perfect fit! And of course the selvage up top just makes me smile. She included a darling little hand made card too.


Thank you so much Nova. I just love, love, love it and it's gone to be parked in a special place on my sewing table. Vroom vroom indeed! So sweet of you!! xoxox
