Ok, by now you all know that I love presents and surprises, right? Well, the day that I left for Florida, my blogging friend, Candace from Squash House Quilts blog, sent out a plea for a piece of Halloween fabric. You have seen pictures of my stash, and you probably know that the likelihood of me having novelty or seasonal prints or really anything other than Civil War reproductions fabrics, for that matter, is pretty slim. But...the one she was looking for was orange with black cobwebs, and I actually had it! I used it one year to make those toilet paper pumpkins! So - I was in a huge hurry - only a couple hours until we had to leave to catch our flight - so I just shoved all that I had in an envelope and left it for DH to mail when I was gone. I told her that I didn't want paid for it - I was probably never going to use it anyway - it was a good way for me to lessen my stash by a yard or so. Forgotten. Until....I got a big ol' box o' stuff in the mail from one Candace! Definitely not necessary, but appreciated - cuz it was just like Christmas! Take a look at all these great things...
And last, but certainly not least...
I know that I promised pictures of the wedding, but Jessica has not sent them to me yet! Here are a few of mine - they are not great, but better than nothing!
Here is my niece, Johnna - I can't believe how grown up she looks. She is walking with the groom's brother.
Now on the jewelry front...since the magazine hit the newsstands, I have had quite a few orders - which is awesome! So, if there are specific items that you have had your eye on - you better order them now, before someone else does. Some things will always be available, like the scrappy pineapples, pumpkins, scrappy log cabins, but understand that they may not be the identical fabrics that are pictured on the website . I will always be happy to make special orders as well - if you like a certain pattern, but would prefer a different color. We aim to please, you know!
Now I've got to get my nose to the grindstone!
Have a great day!!
