I've Got Mail!

Look what I got in the mail!
I was the lucky winner of Nicole's Owl swap! Isn't he the cutest....I've named him Hootie. And the glittered C is perfect! He already has found a spot to nest in. Thanks Nicole!

Things have been pretty quiet here. Took a class at the quilt shop Thursday night. The Lone Star, using fusible interfacing. So far I have one diamond done. I can't believe how easy it is and how nicely all the seams match. We are doing the wall hanging size, so only 7 more diamonds to make.

Got my flu shot a couple days ago and I have been feeling, how should I say it, YUCKY!!! I know they say you don't get sick from the shot but......! I got mine at our local grocery store, and there's just something really funny about sitting in front of the frozen food isle getting a shot! The last 3 years I've gotten one I've not had the flu - so I guess I'll put up with feeling a little YUCKY!! Come on everyone - get your flu shots!!!

Tomorrow it's dinner with the whole family at the Cheesecake Factory - yummmmmmmy!!!! Hey let's forget dinner, what flavor cheesecake shall I have? Later gators!

The tuxedo chessecake is always good. Like your lonestar, your right I think we will have to kit it.

Cheryl said...

I can't wait to put it together Carol. It was so much easier than I thought. I'll take pictures at class of the other ones.

The tuxedo is good - but I love the cookie dough cheesecake, we'll see Donna! I'm loving that lonestar!

Yvonne said...

Cute owl! Can you go wrong with any flavor of cheesecake? :) I love your lonestar. That's one of my favorite patterns.

Cheryl said...

Your right Yvonne - any flavor will do! I love the owl and the lonestar is so much fun!

Thanks for stopping at my website.I love the colors of the lone star...Maybe someday will tackle that pattern, it would have to be an easy version! Enjoy the cheesecake and the dinner. Colleen in South Africa
