Look What Came in the Mail!!!

I'm sorry I've been "missing in action" for a while.  I've been quite sick for . . . well, too long, but a couple of days ago my spirits were lifted up when my son brought in the mail.  Nope, I didn't get any bills that day, I got a special package!  You see, a little while ago I became a follower at Leona's Quilting Adventure because I loved her blog!  *** By the way, if you're not one of her followers you should be!  She has AWESOME posts and is VERY talented with her quilts!!!  You've just gotta go check her out!!! ***

Well I just happened to be her 1,000 follower!  Pretty cool, huh?!?!?  (I can't imagine having 1,000 followers!)  Anyway, I thought it was neat that she had reached such an awesome milestone in the blogging world and then I continued checking things out on her blog.  Well a couple of days later Leona sent me an e-mail where she told me that she wanted to send me a "little" something to thank me for being her 1,000 follower!  How awesome is that?!?!?  I was impressed and figured I'd be getting a pretty little fat quarter or something.  BOY, WAS I WRONG!!!  Look at what she sent me . . .

Look at all this cool "stuff" I got!  There's tons of beautiful fabric, an incredible quilting book that will really help me while I'm learning all the ins and outs of quilting, three spools of pretty thread, and a handout about thread so I can learn why it matters what kind of thread you use! 

Can you believe how generous Leona is?!?!?  I wish I could meet her in person and give her a big hug to thank her for being so kind!  I think I'll tell my doctor that the quickest way to feeling better is a healthy dose of quilty goodness!!!  :)

Thanks, Leona!!!  :)
