Sweet Surprises

I had to share with you pictures of this package that arrived on my doorstep yesterday. I was actually expecting it to be underwear from Victoria's (don't get excited...........trust me....., it's nothing that exciting!) - but instead this is what I found! (and it made me happier than new underwear!).
This sweet package came to me from a dear friend of mine whom I met about 15 years ago while working in Yellowstone National Park as cowgirls (wranglers)- What a time we had!!! I'll never forget those days! Such fun memories - especially since that is where my husband and I met. I could go on and on about Yellowstone - ....
but really I just wanted to thank Trina for sending this to me!! Thank you sweetie!

I love these patches! I think they'll look really funky cool on an apron or something - totally unexpected. Apparently the previous owner had taken a trip to England.
Isn't this cute?! I suppose is was a give away - how quaint that you could receive free needles when you shop. Now we get free music downloads - (which aren't always bad, just not nearly as endearing!) Most of my friends can't even sew on a button, much less have use for an entire folder of needles.
There are rolls of lace, shoelaces, seam binding, rick rac, snaps, elastic (not exciting for you? well it is for me!), velcro (not that's exciting!). Where would we be without velcro?
By the way, the undies from Vicky showed up today - how nice.

What an awesome gift! I lucked out and got some vintage treasures like this when my grandmother relocated. Can't wait to see what you make with your new supplies.

Hey Jennifer! The book has got lots and lots of ideas - it looks a little 80's ish. I'm still thumbing through it. I'm not sure you could find it in stores now.
