I did wake up in a really "grumpy" mood today--
have NO idea why really--just did--
then a little later a big fur 'ball' jumped up on the bed and purred me into a good mood--
Thank you, Miss Gracie!!!
I did start hand quilting a new small quilt this morning--
This one has been waiting 'in line' for along time--
so she's really happy that at least she has been started--
but then once 'grumpy Di' got up and did the dishes and got ahold of her day--
she ended up in the sewing room for the rest of day--
working on this--
the 'some kind of wonderful' quilt for the SAL--
but she decided she did not like the little blocks--
too busy and too much color--didn't think the actual blocks were showing up--
so back to the sewing room and did some 'frogging'--
and came up with this--
It looks light here-- but is much brighter and cheerier--in real life---
This one is alittle better--
I am using some of the strips from 2 jelly rolls of the Bunny Hill collection--
for the borders and in between the blocks--
so now I need to go and find a blue fat quarter pack or a blue jelly roll for some more blues to go in the quilt in the borders!!!
And-- I need to do the embroidery work on each block--
lets see I have --opps---just 3 more days to get this strip finished!!!!!
A package came yesterday from 'lil sister'--
a glass lady bug and a spool of ribbon--
some really cute tiny ornaments with cross stitching in them that she found at a sale--
the cutest tiny bear--she is sitting in the above picture with the ornaments--
wire tree topper angel--very country--
very old glass holders--I have a set that has been in the family for years--
now I have more!!!!
Thanks lil sister for my new loot!!!!
Also got a second package from my brother and sister in law--
Got these adorable angel measuring spoons--
and they were ok--but--the second gift in the box--
did not fair so well--agrrrrrr!!!!
we are definitely not 'feeling well' here--
It 'was' a two tiered plate server--but----
And looky here--Miss Gracie has finally learned that mom has learned how to take her picture and not have the flash go off in her eyes!!!!
It is almost here--
Hugs, from the 'girls'
