a very special thank you to Japan...

This post is being written to take the place of an email that I tried to send today since it simply refused to send for me!

Yesterday, we were very surprised to receive a package from a family who shared their daughter with us this past summer. Yuka was only here for a short stay but we were very glad to have her. Since then, she and her family have visited my blog and I was so happy to hear that! I'm sure they must laugh at the antics my family gets up to!

This is what travelled from Japan all the way to Canada... two packages for my girls, with hand towels, calendars, pens, and sweet note papers. Perfect choices for my creative kiddos!

And for me... these absolutely gorgeous Japanese fabrics...

Yuka's mother told me that she's seen what I make through this website and that she'd be happy if I can find a way to use them in my quilting. Tomoko, I promise to try to make something that will make you smile!
Thank you so much for thinking of us and for sharing these gifts. We hope you have a wonderful Holiday Season too!

Hiroaki, Tomoko, and Yuka, please feel free to email me... hopefully I'll be able to respond! Merry Christmas!

That's a great story.
I stumbled upon your site by browsing through blogs.

It is something I don't usually do but it is great fun finding blogs that I wouldn't normally have searched for.

Keep up the good work!
