Admit it, you wish you were me. I’m going to holler now: I LOVE THESE RINGS! I felt lucky that Cathy introduced me to Louise’s work, but then I won the rings and can’t believe how lucky I am! As you can see from my somewhat rough hewn hands, I am not a girly girl. Louise’s style suits me so well. You can often find me clicking on the items in her shop and dreaming. You MUST see more of Louise’s GORGEOUS work at her shop! Thank you, Cathy, for hosting the giveaway and THANK YOU, Louise! I really love the rings!!
Still can’t believe my luck!
The Royal Mail was busy with me today because some of Aneela’s adorable fabrics arrived as well:
Such cute designs!! Really sweet and playful! Aneela has been making some really fun things with her prints and with her collection of Heather Ross prints. Adorable!
A couple of new books hopped into my Amazon cart last week:
Wonderful books! Highly recommended!
A happy package also arrived from Australia:
This issue of Down Under Quilts contains Sarah Fielke and Sue Spargo’s collaborative design, Peacocks and Plumage. Not that you would know that by looking at my photo…which covers over that detail in the bottom right corner. Ooops! Sarah sent along some delicious fabrics for me to play with as well. Thanks, Sarah!
Many things going on around here this week besides checking the mail box. All of them half finished. Yesterday as I was quilting the Rouenneries spider web quilt, I RAN OUT OF THREAD. You would think I would have a suitable substitute for light beige quilting thread. Um, no, actually I don’t. I had been putting off a little mail ordering from Arizona. And look what happened. So, I got out a quilting hoop to work on a little “accent” quilting while I await the UPS truck:
The loopy part was done while I still had machine quilting thread…. See, I can find things to do while I wait.
Speaking of waiting, I’ve had a silly story to tell you ALL WEEK. But I have been waiting on Mr. Fed Ex Ground ALL WEEK so I can get to the story’s ending. Harumph. It even has a topical theme. But you’ll have to wait to hear it.
So, go find something to do while you wait! Enjoy the weekend!
