Get Your Phil On
Groundhog Day is a holiday celebrated on February 2 in the United States and Canada. According to folklore, if it is cloudy when a groundhog emerges from its Burrow on this day then spring will come early. If it is sunny, the groundhog will supposedly see its shadow and retreat Back into its Burrow, and the winter weather will continue for six more weeks. I wonder what Punxsutawney Phil at Gobblers Knob will predict for us today?
Some lovely spool Blocks arrived from Bobbie at Itsallaboutme. I was getting a little heavy on Blues, so these wonderful Blocks will be a welcome addition for variety. Just love the Brown textured spool.
These lovely extras came in a very special Box from Jinnie over at Lots of Fabric2. She was paired as my sender (I sent to someone different) in Cheryll's Initial Valentines Swap. Lookie see........
My pretty Valentine!! Oh, my initial done so special and Beads - yum - special threads, special stitches - so many things I love. AND it fits so lovely on my Ackfeld hanger. Oh, I know - the Easter Bunnies, my grandson loves to play with them, but they do add to the whole thing. Thank you Jinnie for such a wonderful Valentines.
GIVING AND GIFTING
I was completely floored with this lovely Bundle - Sentimental Studios' 'Summer Breeze II'!! This was sent to me as a thank you - from my SIL - for helping her with her first quilt. There was also a Bundle of various muslins (I love muslin). I told her I would only accept it if she promised to come share it and work on a project along side me. So our Summer Breeze projects are being plotted. Thank you Jeri!!
