I went out to the mailbox today expecting the usual know what I am referring to.....boring bills and junk mail.  Wow...was I surprised when I saw a manilla envelope addressed to me.  It was from Sue, a wonderfully talented quilt designer that I recently had the pleasure of doing some custom work for.

She sent me this amazing pattern for one of her Halloween wall hangings.  Here is a close-up of the finished item.

These are works of art when they are completed and making them even more SPECIAL are the  buttons that are included with each pattern for use in the quilt.  Here is a picture of the buttons that come with "A Spell Gone Wrong".

Aren't they just the cutest buttons for Halloween you've ever seen!  She also sent me the cutest fall bookmark made with a real leaf pressed into plastic.  What a unique idea!

Thank you soooo much, Sue, for your kind gesture and generosity!  I am humbled and blessed to have met someone so special.  Sue designs these quilted works of art and wholesales from her website  Mouse Blankets.  If you would like to find a retailer of her patterns near you, visit her website at for this and more information. 

In the near future, I will post pictures of the finished wallhanging:0)  Have a great weekend!!!
