As I sat here contemplating how I am going to put the borders on the blue kaleidoscope quilt, it dawned on me that I forgot to share pictures of a couple of absolutely beautiful gifts I recently received. My dear friend Rebecca took me to lunch one day and presented me with a lovely little metallic red gift box, about the size a watch would come in. She said she had seen these items online and knew I would like them. I opened the box to find-
Gorgeous, huh? I oohed and awed, but then I looked at her and had to ask what it was. So she took it apart –
Is this just the most awesome seam ripper you have ever seen? The colors are brilliant! It is so smooth in the hand – I didn’t want to put it down. But Rebecca says- there’s something else-
This is a gorgeous little glass nail file- it’s about 3 5/8” overall. It is so beautiful and a perfect size. Rebecca found these dazzling creations on etsy made by Angela Hickey of Polymer Clay Creations. This woman is truly an artist - she makes custom items and even sells polymer clay canes if you would like to try this on your own. Rebecca crochets and got the most beautiful crochet hook with a multi-blue colored handle. I keep my lovely seam ripper right next to my sewing machine and find I am frequently distracted by it – I just want to hold it!
So, thank you so much Rebecca – you really found the perfect gifts for me!
Off to work on those borders!
