Secrets Revealed

Do you recall on a previous posting about a "secret assignment"? Well, I received word that it finally arrived safe and sound. It took over a month for the parcel to arrive
in South Wales.

They had just experienced a postal strike so needless to say, the mail was a tad backed up.
Now that the quiltie has arrived, I can let the cat out of the bag! My assignment was to make a "winter themed" wallhanging for a 15-year-old daughter (Gemma) of one of the quilters (Gemma's mom, Gina) in my "Spring Fling Round Robin" group (say that a few times!!) It took a bit of thinking and then I got an idea...a really good idea! Now you will understand when I posted earlier why it was "hard to say goodbye!" I had a lot of fun putting together a "special parcel" for Gemma because it began with the theme of "some of my favorite things" starting with the snowglobe wallhanging. (In case you didn't already know, I collect snowglobes). From there I added more of my favorite things, a notebook (cause I like to write things down), chocolate (no explanation required) and other Christmas candy (cause it's Christmas) that might not be available in South Wales. I received an email from Gina to say that the parcel arrived and that "I did good"!! I am so glad to hear this since it was a "special assignment" and I didn't want to disappoint anyone. Thanks to our host Mom, Margaret. She must have a lot of faith in me.
