Every so often, I am the recipient of some really cool stuff. Last bee, I received two different gifts from two different friends whose initials are L. You know who you are. And, you both read this blog.
L gave Sydney some makeup. L, I wanted you to know that yesterday, on the way to school, she said “that lipstick from your friend L is the perfect color.” She also said to tell you thanks so much for the nice gift.
L gave me some things that had come to her from her mother. There was a whole collection of quilting motif books and patterns for whole cloth quilts. You guys know how much I love those.
And, there was also this preprinted whole cloth top that I’ve already basted to a backing and collected thread and my hand quilting sewing kit and am ready to bag it up for my trip to Indiana next month. I’m going to be spending a lot of time in hotels that week and if I get lucky, I’ll be a passenger in the backseat of someone’s car while we drive all over the state and this will be the perfect project (if unlucky, I’m the driver.)
I always look at these longingly at the quilt shows, but I’ve never bought one. Now, I have one and I can hardly wait to get started on it.
And, following that theme, the fruit quilt kit was also a gift, and last night, I made this much progress on those tiny tomato leaves.
That’s the first five pieces. Of 49. We’re gonna be at this all month.
See ya. Be well. It’s hump day; the middle of the week. I started washing the red fabrics for the raffle quilt. They ran. Tomorrow is another day. And, another hot wash and dry.
