goodness gracious!!!

I am stunned! Look at what I just received in the mail from my dear Aunt Pam.

I couldn't be more surprised by this very very special gift. I had absolutely no idea she had a surprise up her sleeve. Aunt Pam never let on that she was making something for me, and boy am I ever so shocked. I nearly cried when I opened up this little red package. Take a gander at the goods!

The backing

Look at all the beautiful 1800's reproduction fabrics!!!

Close up.

My Aunt is so sweet. She writes: "From My Heart to Yours" - For my precious niece

Do you know how lucky I am??? I am in awe, really, I am. My aunt is the best ever! I couldn't be more happier, more pleased and more loved than I am right now. Aunt Pam has made my day, my week, my month, and my year. I love you, Aunt Pam!!!

Hi Julie, Thank you for your sweet comments on my blog. :) I do so appreciate them.

What an awesome heirloom gift from your Aunt Pam. I would probably have been in tears. BEAUTIFUL!!

I love your needlepunch. I've yet to try it because it looks intimidating, but I LOVE the look of it. Great job!
