Crazy Exchange from Simone

I received a lovely Crazy Exchange from Simone today. I was so excited to get a package from this group, and to have it be from Simone makes it even more special!

Simone made me this sweet sewing pocket/trousse. I love the fabric! And she enclosed some Tokens & Trifles, a little notebook and some pretty fabric for me too.

Love Victoria's Quaker. You are doing a beautiful job. If only I had more time to do all the things that I want. Have to keep focused on my Village as much as possible.

Oh, what a great sewing pocket! And I'll be curious to hear how you like working with the Tokens & Trifles. I've 'almost' bought them several times, but can't quite get used to the idea of stitching on paper.
