Today when D brought the mail in and handed me my share, I looked through the various envelopes and glanced at the return addresses. Everything was as usual: numerous catalogs, charitable organizations asking for help, a gift for D from an expected source, some embellishments I had ordered (sequin snowflakes), and something from eQuilter.
The latter had me confused as I didn't remember ordering anything from them - although I do from time to time. So I took the packet upstairs in case it was something that was part of a gift I wouldn't want D to see. It wasn't that, but it was a surprise.
This is a 42 piece charm pack (5" squares of fabric), and it was in the envelope with a note from eQuilter thanking me for my patronage. The charm pack is a thank you gift from them. I received something from them last year also, but this is different and quite special.
These are the fabrics in the charm pack - 9 different selections. Now, I don't know about you, but I love bright colors, and I love metallic glitz so these pieces fit my taste to a T.
This close up is a bit better; you can get a better view of the colors and metallic flecks. Lovely, but for one minute I was stumped about what I would do with these them. That didn't last.
It was a gift to me so it's my turn to gift them to someone else. I will make a donation quilt to brighten the day of someone else - just as opening the envelope brightened my day.
