I received some lovely mail the pass couple of days. First was this sweet doll quilt from my partner Emily for the Mellow Yellow theme. And the added packet of sunflower seeds actually were very touching as my Dad's B'day is coming up and he loved to plant these.
This lovely kitchen set arrived from my partner in the Friends Swap. Just lovely and special as this little group disbanded with this last swap - makes it extra special to have recieved such pretties.
And a dear blogging friend sensed there was something amiss at Quilt Lane and sent me a sweet package to cheer me up. I have so admired her dishclothes and then she started to make the swirly scrubbies - now I have some. Candy is always a comfort. There was some gum, but that went right into the purse. Yeah I am a gum chewer - NO a gum snapper, which drives people nuts. I have to chew gum when I am in a car (driving or riding) to help with head pressure.
A few know that I have been caring for my Mom who had some minor surgery. And those who have done caregiving, know that we forget to care for ourselves. So I wasn't so careful in that respect and got a little run down - but popping back.
So I haven't done a lot of sewing, but I did manage to finish up my little spools. Someone mentioned they looked like bows, and my love of buttons - so I made it 'Buttons & Bows'.
Tomorrow , with the help of my SIL, we will be be getting things ready to hang out quilts for the 'Airing of the Quilts' come Saturday morning. And the shop needs a little sprucing up, too. Need to charge my camera - will take pictures.
