Surprise Package

When I came home from a few errands on Saturday I found a package on the kitchen counter. I had been waiting for another package from Superior Threads so I didn't think anything of it but, when I finally stopped to read the name on the package I saw Jodi 's name from Simply This That & the Other I was so excited and immediately ripped open the package.

What Fun!

I think we could all get use to having fun surprise packages arrive in the mail every day.

Don't you think?

Well, You won't believe what fell out of the package. . .

Not one little quilt . . .

Not two . . .

Not three . . .

But . . . FOUR darling Quilted Placemats. . .

And . . .

Here they are . . .





Here's a view of 3 of them on my island countertop . . .

Thanks Jodi for your friendship, kindness, and thoughtfulness in making these for me. I love them and will use them everyday. Don't they look cute on my countertop. They match my granite too!

I absolutely LOVE them!!!
