Mermaid Magic ...

And that's exactly what Jill's package to me was ..... magical!!!
We arrived home late last night from a weeks vacation in Missouri, and I found her package waiting for me .... lucky me:-D

Cast your eyes upon all that goodness!!!

Look at this beautiful treasure. She is made from a piece of driftwood that Jill found a number of years ago - isn't it just the perfect shape for this queen of the sea.

This mini quilt she made me is just precious. I'm going to add loops to the top of it and hang it with my other swap treasures, that I've recieved .... all from women I consider friends, although I've never met them in person.

No, we're not finished yet ..... this pretty bracelet was also included. It is so me!!! I wore it to Church today, and got a number of compliments on it
Is she not just sooo cute? Way to cute to stick pins in!!! This mermaid pincushion has joined my little group of "to cute to be pricked" pincushions:-D Every time I look at that little tail, I just have to smile!!!
She also included some crafty bits and pieces, as well as lots of ribbon ..... oh, can you see my big smiley face:-D
Jill, THANK YOU so much for spoiling me .... you made my day:-D
Frogs ..... oohhh ..... time to put my thinking cap on. Have fun with the theme girls, it's oh so cute!!!

Adorable Mermaids! The Mermaid from driftwood is perfect. Looks like it was meant to be.

I'm so glad you liked the package. I was nervous about sending the bracelet because I loved it but my husband looked at me like I was crazy when I showed it to him. I'm so glad you like it too!
The funniest thing of all is we used similar things in our swap. I didn't say anything in my post because I didn't want to ruin the surprise but I chuckled when I got your package because we had so many similar ideas. I had purchased and taken ribbon from my stash for you, I had made you a pincushion and I had purchased/used the same sea shell buttons you used. I guess great minds think alike! Thanks for a great swap!
