I have a dear friend named Betty, who I first met back in my rubber and paper art days. I finally got to meet Betty in person and hang out when I lived for 2 years in Minnesota back in the mid 90′s. Betty has a heart of gold, plus is a creative woman from years back. Actually, Betty was the first person to show me beading.
Betty, who also is known by many as “Queen Betty of Pego Pego,” now lives in Oregon and is retired. She is still creating, and is a young soul in a mature body. Anyway, Betty sent me a box filled with quilty goodies just because she wanted to. Betty is that giving!
First up are 2 signed books from Jean Ray Laury, an artist I have long respected and admired. She is a pioneer of the modern quilting movement.

Here is what else Betty sent:
Yes, those are some vintage cool rubber stamps for making small pieced blocks:
Thank you, dear Betty!! I appreciate your kindness and spirit! Hugs, Carla
