A couple hours after finding the perfect sewing machine (at $24.99, you bet it’s perfect!), my dear, sweet friend, Sandra, brought me these:

I’ve only ever used her Gingher’s…now I have my very own!

The patterns are absolutely adorable, as well! Two nightgown patterns, pinafore and shirtdress, petticoats, bloomers and chemises…I can’t wait to get started!

We shared a lovely pot of Harney and Sons Chocolate Mint tea and much needed fellowship! It had been a whole day since we had last seen one another! She is a real doll, and as sweet as her gifts are, they don’t come even close to matching how precious her friendship is to me.

I love you, my friend!
