Sweetie, from the blog Sweeties World you can click on from my list, and I have become good friends.
When she had a giveaway a while back, Heidi mentioned she loved the Skates she was giving away. Sweetie bought both Heidi and me a skate. They are so cute and we both thank you.
Not only did I receive the skate, but a wonderful little angel ornament and a bar of wonderful smelling soap (which I will never use). I love it.

The soap is made of goats milk and too cute to use. I will be putting it on an easel to display.

The angel ornament is just darling and I am planning to attach it to a picture frame so I can keep it out all year.
This is a close up of one of the skates. Heidi said we can't skate unless we are together, because she will have the left one and I will have the right. Thank you with all my heart Sweetie.

I bought this book today at Joanne Fabrics and I have a project in mind that I cannot say anything about right now. I will let you know later.

This is the project I was working on a while back for Mandie's birthday. It is a case to hold her knitting needles. I made them for myself and my sister a long time ago. When Kristy started to knit, I made one for her, and then a year ago Christmas, I made Haali one. I thought I had made one for Mandie until she said she didn't have one. She does now. Her birthday was Jan. 14th.
Since I failed to turn this picture, the needles are falling out, LOL. It should be turned completely around.

This flap goes over the needles and then the case ties.
I want to tell Linda, I did see the award and will pick it up later. Thanks for thinking of me.

And I too thank Sweetie with all MY heart too! It was so thoughtful and caring of her. And if she wonders, I am left handed and your are right which is why I get the left skate and you the!

I know your secret project... :) And I am sure that Mandie loves her new needle case.

Love and hugs ~

I am so happy that you and Heidi like the "skates." Daughter Michele and Daughter Stephanie are at my house today laying out a quilt. Stephanie is giving lessons to Michele. They cut the pieces from Sherry's clothing. It is a work of love. Have a great day.

Wonderful gifts from a very special person. I love Mandie's needle case. The book looks interesting, enjoy it. Loved the projects you emailed me from the book.

What lovely gifts from Sweetie, Nancy. She is such a thoughtful and generous person and has found a wonderful warm and caring friend in you.

I just love those skates. I am really into skates at the moment, the older the better and that angel is just gorgeous.

We have gost's milk cheese in Cyprus and that's wonderful and creamy so I'm sure the soap is the same. Enjoy your gifts and skating together with heidi :>)
Hugs, Angela
