Totally Spoilt by wonderful Kaye

I love to read and my tastes are very diverse.  I flatter myself that I am pretty well read but I have never read the Elm Creek novels by Jennifer Chiaverini. 
Yesterday I met lovely Kaye from Kitten Stitching for lunch and I was thrilled to receive  two huge bags of the most beautiful books... Jennifer Chiaverini novels...all hard back...all absolutely perfect and with some of the most beautiful dust covers I have ever seen.  And they are for me to keep.
I'm starting with Mrs Lincoln's Dressmaker.
I cannot describe how thrilled I am by this amazing and wonderful gift.  Thank you so much to dear Kaye.  
I adore this dear little pear pin cushion and plan to make one to add to my pincushion collection.  If you would like to make one too, please follow this LINK.  The pattern is very kindly shared by Lauren at wonderful Molly and Mama.

Hope you enjoyed a fun filled day


  1. What a lovely gift! Enjoy reading them Melody! Christine x

  2. They are a lovely range of books. I have them too. My daughter bought them for my birthdays & Xmas gifts over a few years. Really enjoyed them.
    I think Mrs Lincoln's Dressmaker was one of the last ones... Enjoy

  3. Oh, Mel - what lovely books from Kaye! She's such a peach. Enjoy your reads.

  4. There is no better gift than a book and what a wonderful gift you were given. I, too, have very diverse tastes but I have read only a couple of the Elm Creek books, the first ones. I think the author has broadened into a very interesting genre and I, too, am putting her titles on my wish lists. Lucky you to have such a good friend!!

  5. Melody, you are so very welcome! I hope that you enjoy them immensely!

  6. What a wonderful gift! Enjoy your reads and thanks for the link too.

  7. Eautiful gift you have received, enjoy the reading.

  8. the books are great - I haven't read them all. The sampler I am doing at the moment is based around one of them...

  9. How lovely of Kaye. You'll love those books, Mel. I certainly do!

  10. What a very special gift for a very special gal. xx

  11. Melody, a big thank you for sharing my Molly and Mama Pear Pin Cushion post. It's much appreciated. Be sure to let me know when you make one. I'd love to see it! x

  12. That is an incredible gift. I have a few paperback versions and have 2 more ready to read. Enjoy.
