A Really Fun Gift

I forgot to show you all another really fun gift I got from my mom for Christmas! It was the cutest little singer sewing machine sewing box! It came filled with all kinds of cheap threads and pins of course, but the treasure was really the box!

It is made of something resin like and the top slides off to find a box for sewing stuff. And I found a $50 bill tucked inside to spend on any quilt stuff I wanted!

I'll tell you - that was a great surprise too! But the box is adorable! I've got to find someplace really fun to put it!

Way to go, Mom!! Love the box. Won't that be a nice keepsake to have over the years? I also loved you little quilt with the free-form fans. Great colors.
