APP's Potholder Swap - What I Got!

Been a bit tardy about posting this - be assured my partner did send her potholder on time - I'm just late to post about it :-(  Actually, I was coming up on my 100th post and thought I should do a giveaway, but wanted to actually HAVE something to give away before I posted! Well, then I saw someone else's blog where they had fudged on a milestone post and did a giveaway WELL AFTER the actually milestone occurred. So I thought "Brilliant! I shall fudge on MY 100th post, too! Because fudge is chocolate, and there's absolutely nothing wrong with chocolate!" My, how I can talk myself into or out of just about anything, LOL! So, here is the beautiful potholder and other things that my wonderful partner, Susie, sent me! I aboslutely love it all! I love the fabric so much! And look at the tea towel, with a hanging loop - soooo pretty, pretty, pretty!!!

As if the beautiful potholder and towel weren't enough, she also sent this delicate etched glass oval! It's hanging in my (FORMER) office window in this photo, but it'll be going in my living room window at home as soon as I unpack it - more about why it's my FORMER office window in the next post.
But the things that tickled me the most were these little gold-tone paper clips! They are so delicate! And so small! Susie said she had gotten them from someone and was "doling" them out to special people. My, I guess that must make me a special person and even though there are only two in the picture below (with the seam gauge for scale), she sent me THREE of them! I'm feeling all quite warm and fuzzy, Susie :-) Thanks so much for everything!
