It doesn’t get any better than this!! First off, I received a wonderful mailing from Vicki Welsh over at Field Trips in Fiber, and so I happily open it. She makes the most wonderful soap and so I am the lucky recipient of Hemp Soap, Jojoba mango, and Shea Butter soaps!! Best yet, they come wrapped in a lovely handdyed artsy goodness! Thank you, Vicki!!
I went to post a picture, but I’m afraid my Scandisk card reader crashed, so I will buy a new one tomorrow. I’m afraid I’ve dropped it one time too many.
Also in the mail was a “thank you” card from Virginia, a lovely piecer. I had corrected an “oops” by her machine quilter located far, far away, and she was expressing her thanks by a gift certificate from a local quilt store. Thanks, Virginia!
Next, I stop by my friend, Barb’s house to pick up a quilt top. Barb, the best piecer I know, agreed to design and piece a quilt top for me- we are working on some collaboration projects. This quilt top is AMAZING!!! Lots of wonderful places for me to quilt some lovely motifs! I will quilt this quilt when i get back! Plus, Barb threw in some quilting books, and another quilt top, too!! (Thank you, Barb, if you are reading this! You rock!)
Spent the afternoon with Jack (and his parents), he is getting to be pretty mobile already. He is so cute, engaging and best of all, he saved up his explosion for his dad this time. LOL!! Pictures will follow. Of Jack…. not the explosion.
After visiting Jack, we came home and I decided to check my email. Lisa Kingsley, over at Pincushion Points blog, emailed me to let me know I won her blog contest!! Am I lucky or what?? Shall I now play the lottery?
Yes, you are lucky. I won a book one time. I love to join the giveaways though. I have enjoyed your blog.
I just read the last three posts, what a lovely time you are having…when you can I’d love to see photos of the new quilt top…
Wow, what a lucky day for you!
What a lucky lady you are. The soap sounds yummy. Have a great weekend.
I love the way you said you spent the day with Jack (and his parents). I tell my Mom I became chopped liver when the girls were born.
Sounds like you had a wonderful day! Nice to have those once in a while!
