A Gift From An Angel

Waiting for me in the mailbox today was a wonderful present from my secret Stitcher Angel.....two wonderful pincushions that are so beautifully made and I LOVE the colors! I have seen this type of pincushion on other blogs and always, always wanted one, and now I have two. Did I say that I LOVE them?!! And look at the sweet little socks for baby you know who!!! Thank you secret Stitcher Angel....you are the best :-)!

I have had some emails asking if I am OK. Very OK as a matter of fact, just nothing quilty again! All attempts at quilty business has not happened! Last week I ended up spending two days in the courtroom, going through the process of jurors being picked. Never got called, but after sitting through 60 people going through the same questions we all had them memorized! Finally at 4:30 on Wednesday the jury and alternates were picked and the 10 of us left were out the door.
Here's something I thought I would share. When we went to IKEA last week, I got this really cool half moon desk blotter. It's leather and has a little lip edge that holds it right in place...OK so my Bernina weighs a ton and the thing couldn't move anyway, but I just like how it fits over the edge. Speaking of sharing, have you been over to visit here???? So glad Miss No blog has finally joined us!
So what in the heck has been going on around here........going through closets, reorganizing drawers, making a list of projects to get done! Things that I have put off forever and always wanted to get to.....well now there is time and lots has been accomplished. I even went out in the yard and pulled a few weeds...have I lost my mind? Thursday there is a quilty sewing thing going on, so there definitely will be some sewing happening. Hope your week got off to a great start and that you guys are being more productive then I am!!! See you later alligators!
UPDATE - What an absent minded blogger I am. I forgot to mention the wonderful swap that is going on in my honor hosted by Sharon. It's amazing how she was able to put my likeness on a button! Have to say I was feeling a bit puffy this day :-)!! Polka Dots and Rick Rack, what a grand swap. Thanks Sharon!!!

You sound real busy! Makes ya' wonder how on earth you ever worked full time, huh? ;-)

Lorraine said...

Sounds like you are getting quite a bit done! I was hoping to give the house a good spring clean and change lots of things around....get some stitching done....all during the two weeks I have off work.....but we are midway thru the first week and I have been sick!! nothing terrible....just a virus that makes me feel tired and lethargic and I haven't even felt like stitching.... :( How very annoying!! .....But hopefully it will go away soon and I will be able to get something done.....! I the meantime I am enjoying just having a break!

I'm glad you think that Ms. Polka Dot turned out well. I was looking at a photo of you the whole time. Amazing how much you two look alike.
