A sweet mail day for me! Nan sent me this yummmmy chocolate candle and Hershey's magnet from her recent vacation, and let me tell you it smells so good I think I am going to be tempted to eat it!! Then from my Secret Angel Stitcher, present #2. She sent me a pair of her favorite scissors with a wonderful hand stitched fob attached and two additional fobs!! I am one lucky stitcher :-)!!
The kids best friends had a baby boy on Tuesday...baby Calvin Matthew made his appearance. His mommy had bought fabric for bumpers and a quilt, so that's what I worked on today. The quilt and backing are done and ready to be quilted and bumpers are cut and just need to be sewn! Since making bumpers for baby Polka Dot I have gotten a little wiser about buying the bumper forms. Sometimes they don't fit the crib!!! The girls figured that I need to trim down 4 of the bumpers for the perfect fit. Another finish, Block 5 of the Designer Mystery Block Of The Month - YIPEEE!!
Friday was a fun day visiting our girl at her new apartment and her cat DC, such a sweet cat that she inherited from the person that lived in her first apartment. I can believe someone would leave such a wonderful cat. She could not have picked a better kitty. And here's how our girl spent her Saturday....flying thru the air with the greatest of ease - WOW!!! I really admire her for giving that a whirl! You go girl :-)!!
So is everyone busy on Christmas projects?? My next 4 reindeer blocks are all cut out and then some buttonholing...no problem!! They should be done by Christmas 2010!
We are off for a few days of camping at the beach. The Santa Ana winds are expected to blow, so we should have some crisp clear weather. A great time to spend warm and cozy in the trailer sewing.
Hard to believe it's the middle of October ....soon all the ghosts and goblins will be out trick or treating...happy Fall to one and all. See you later alligators :-)!!
