The last 2 days have been wonderful in my mailbox!!! I received 3 very special packages......
#1 - in November 2007 I joined a 15 month Round Robin with several other bloggers that was slated to end this month, so the finished projects have been trickling home. My little beauty arrived home yesterday. Today I had the chance to really look at my lovely quiltlet. I started with the little shoofly block in the upper left corner and the only guidelines I provided were "Please use pinks, greens & creams". I am in awe of the finished quilt!! I cannot wait to hang this little treasure in my office at work!!! Thank you to all of the ladies that had a part in making this quilt, I am thrilled!!!
#2 - I am a member of the Machine Quilting Professionals yahoo list and after the Secret Sister program started, some members were feeling a little left out. So, Cynthia started the Red-Headed Step Child swap for those of us that didn't join the Secret Sister program. Each month we send a little giftie to Cynthia and she puts those gifts into a big box. Then she draws a name to determine which of us will receive the box that month. January I was apparently chosen as the lucky recipient!! Well I gotta tell you, I sure don't feel like the red-headed step child right now!! The box was chock full of quilty goodness!!! I am in awe and absolutely floored by all the goodies!!! Thanks so much to all the Red-Headed Step Children that helped put a big smile on my face :)
#3 - My mini group, the Sundae Quilters, got together before the guild meeting this past Saturday to exchange our Secret Santa gifts. I was unable to join my friends because a nasty storm was headed our way, and I drive a little over 2 hours each way over a few mountains to get to the guild meeting. So my BFF, Nancy, mailed my gift to me. Jan got my a Gypsy Rose jelly roll....You have no clue how tickled I am about this gift!!! I am a HUGE fan of Fig Tree and love anything they design!!! This is a jelly roll that I have been lusting after for awhile and now I have it in my hot little hands :) Thanks a million Jan!!!
So even though I'm not feeling 100% right now (picked up a stomach flu bug) I have a silly smile on my face :)
Thanks so much everyone!!!
