Tricky Tina

Tina from Quilting for Enjoyment is very clever!
She had me as a secret sister through one of our Yahoo groups during the winter months, October, November and December. She lavished me with wonderful items I would have purchased myself! I tell you she tapped into my brain somehow and knew just what I would like!
Since I had such a fun time I signed up for another 3 months of secret sister swapping. Our hostess randomly picked names and gave us our assignments. This time I receive goodies from Annie.
January - what? no picture?? sorry!
March - see picture above
She too had a great knack for knowing what I liked and included gorgeous fabrics and table runner patterns knowing I wanted to complete several this year. What luck! How did I get two wonderful sisters?
So, while drooling over the last package of the three month series I become very, very, very confused! There is a beautiful hand quilted table runner amongst the other wonderful treats. On the back of the runner is a label that is signed by Tina. Tina, NOT Annie.
Hmm. How does Annie and Tina know each other? Then I read the card. Tina was assigned my name again! She hid the fact by using her grandmother's name in the return address!
I loved the surprise and reveled in her creativity for a good while!
THEN, the other day I received a note from Tina and enclosed was this beautiful fabric post card! I've seen these on the Internet here and there, but have never made nor received one so I was thrilled! I'm excited now to try a couple post cards of my own!
Tina is a beautiful quilter and a generous lady. I'm so glad our paths have met!!
