Bountiful Delights

Wanda is so generous, what a wonderful exchange I have received this morning. It's 9:30 a.m. and the mail has already arrived for the day, here is what I found on my doorstep, not a large envelope but a box...from Wanda, what could be in it I wonder. I rush into my house with it to open it. I soon decide to document the entire process from the beginning so I take the box back outside after I already opened it and photograph it in the spot on my doorstep where the mail carrier left it for me this morning.

I open the box, I find carefully wrapped items in tissue and an envelope.
In the envelope is a beautiful card with Wanda's monogram on it, a very nice note was handwritten on the inside.
Here are the contents of the box before further exploration, everything is looking divine so far...
The theme is in yellow, burgandy and green colors. Some delectable candies and sweet candles for starters...

Another package of goodies to open... I see some wonderful beauties to discover...
Oh My! What lovely items Wanda has included in this package, I am blown away. First and foremost she is reading my blog, what a sweetie and saw that I adore and actually am in need of some Jobelyn fabric and she included 2 very nice and large pieces of Wichelt 28 count Jobelyn, I am in love with this fabric. Her theme colors are true throughout these gifts, the cutest little teddy bear pin (she read about my teddy bear collection no doubt), and yellow and burgandy ribbon and Tapestry Green silk variated threads from the Thread Gatherer, a lovely yellow themed chart called Sweet Nothings "A time to sing" with the sweetest little birds by JBW Designs, and a gorgeous hummingbird card (she discovered I like birds). And....drumroll....here is the main event...the square she stitched for me. It is just so lovely, one of my favorites. I just love bunnies and Just Nan designs this is just too much, she stitched me Daffodil Run and it is just lovely, I am delighted and blessed beyond measure with Wanda's thoughtfulness. This square will be going into a sudberry box and set on one of my livingroom shelves.
Here is the square Wanda stitched with her name and it matches the design, this is lovely too and will be set on the inside of the lid of my box.
Wanda did a tremendous job on this exchange and I am thoroughly pleased. Thank you so much Wanda!

That's just lovely! I LOVE this design but haven't gotten it stitched yet. It's on my list of "someday's" though! Congrats to you both!
