I still have a lot of fun mail days to share with you! Isn't this adorable? It's from my friend Nancy...
Another day, another package - again from Nancy (she totally spoils me!!)
This is a cute little kit that she bought while they were shopping at Temecula one day. I really love the variety of fabrics in it and need to set aside some time to make it - it will be a quick, fun little project. And how cool that she sent it in the Temecula project bag!
Boy, did we have some fun visitors this summer! We have 4 nieces from North Dakota. Brianna has been working in Iowa since January and has come to see us a few times, but the other 3 have never been here. Michaela decided that she wanted to surprise DH this summer and come to visit! We worked out the details and I was sooooo excited for them to come and knew that it would be the best surprise ever for DH. He messed up our plans a little bit when he got home earlier than expected on the day that they were to arrive. I had hoped to have them here and just sitting in the living room when he got home. But instead, they managed to drive up and sneak into the garage. I had told them to just come on in, but he walked into the garage just as they came in! He just stood there with his mouth open for a long time! Didn't even have any words! So funny and so special to have them here for a few days. This is Michaela...
This is what I see out of one side of my sewing room - I just thought it looked pretty with the pond and the blue sky with the clouds peeking over the trees.
Speaking of Gathering Scraps - it is going on tour! Lisa B from Primitive Gatherings called the other day and asked if she could borrow it for awhile to put in their booth at some shows this fall. Well...of course! I boxed it and a bunch of patterns up last week and sent it off. Then I decided to make a smaller (in size, not scale) version to take with me to my shows this fall. I'm working on it now. It really is a fun quilt to make. I'm hoping to have the 2nd one finished today. Not sure what to do about the quilting. I should probably attempt to do it myself, but I hate to ruin it. Might have to make some phone calls and plead for someone to quilt it for me. Do you think I will be able to keep Ozzie off of this one? Probably not!
One last thing - I have 5 spots left in Charming 3 - so if you have been on the fence about signing up, this is your last chance!
Hope you have a great Wednesday!
