I got a lovely surprise package in the mail---
this package was from Robin@ ----rsislandcrafts.blogspot.com
she coordinated the beautiful quilt for me in "memory" of my Mary--
She received "3" more blocks after the quilt was finished--so she spent some time trying to decide "what" to make with them--
so First she made me a tote bag with two of the blocks--
back (I did not lay this out very well--it is flat and stitched beautifully!!
and with the third block--she made this--
Just a cute mat--
and I already found a home for it--
It's on the Hoosier showing off my other new goodies!!!!
Thank you to all who did these beautiful blocks!!
Then she sent me--
this adorable crocheted purse she made and only because I said I loved it and wanted one---and this is just so darn cute!!!! Thanks Robin!!!
Work--did I do some work today--
First off--we had another dark wet day here--
But I have only got "24" blocks left--
I have passed the half way mark with 25 blocks hand quilted on Short Story!!!
and then the rest of the day--in between other things (like cleaning the bathroom!!)
I worked on this --
this much is all appliqued now--
that little pumpkin--
caused me some extra work---the first time I stitched it on--it was tipped up at the end about 2 inches above on the right side from the bottom line--it still is not level on the bottom--but my question is this---do all pumpkins grow perfectly flat on the bottoms?????
Now it is time for some fun---
Di is getting to celebrate a blog post Number---
Can you guess the the Number????????????
and yes there will be a prize or prizes--depending on how many get the answer right!!!
and then on Wednesday we will be having another "give away"--so stayed tuned to this blog site for further events!!!!
By the way===where is everyone---it really is quiet out there!!!
Are you just "busy" getting the Kiddies in school--
or is there something else going on??????
Maybe it is just the rainy weather---
Have fun tomorrow--
PS and stay dry!!!!
