Surprise Package and More Flowers

I received this package in today's mail. I was not expecting anything so it was a real surprise. Mary sent it to me. She said she won a giveaway from me and wanted to return the kindness. I sure love everything she sent. There is a lovely pincushion she made and the pin with the button face she also made. There is a magnetic bookmark, an angel pin, some buttons which I always use on projects, some rick-rack and this beautiful bunch of ribbons and trims. What a great gift. Thanks so much Mary.

This is the Needlewomen's Angel pin, I just love it.

My first bloom on my Clematis. This vine had a hard start. It was planted by my porch and I did not realize that the Black Walnut tree 6 foot away would poison it and kill it. I moved it just in time to baby it back to health.

This is my first Iris that has bloomed. I posted before but now the second bloom has opened.

This is my Allium by my rail fence. I just love the shape of it. This one must have started from seed because the first one is still on the other side of the fence.


  1. I have that same color clematis and love it. Nice surprise package you got!

  2. Your flowers are always so pretty.

    What a lovely gift from Mary! I am sure you will find a good use for everything.
