FINALLY! :-)

I'm baaaaaccccckkkkkk! Did ya miss me? LOL
It was a beautiful week end in the mountains of AZ - cooler temps and such! It started out a very mellow and relaxing week end and Friday morning we had a situation that put a huge pall over the rest of the week end. Rather than relaxing I found myself very tense and stressed. I felt like I was walking on cracked eggs all week end. I accomplished absolutely nothing and wouldn't mind if I felt that I'd rested and relaxed but.... OK enough said! :-) It felt really good to get home. :-)
I did come home to a wonderful surprise - my Fall Swap Quilt arrived. Sadly, my swap partner, Alicia, had to make a second quilt because the first one she mailed well over a month ago has never arrived. :-( This one is darling and will look adorable any place I put it in my home. I went back and looked through Alicia's blog and saw pictures of the first one and it's adorable, too. Thank you, Alicia and I'm so sorry you had to make a second one!
I'll take some time later today to read all your blogs - I'm sure you've all been very, very busy.
Thanks for missing me and remember to be kind to those around you!
In Friendship!!

Boy, did I miss you, my friend !
So sorry you had a bad feeling by the end of the week, but the beginning was good a least, and "what's taken is taken", as we say here...
Lovely, lovely Autumn Swap quilt from your partner ! You're right : it can fit anywhere in a home, the colors are so well chosen...

Now, I'll leave some room for the numerous friends who missed you and wish to post a welcome back comment !

Hugs & smiles to you !

Welcome back. We missed you. So now you are relaxed and ready for a lot of quilting. The quilt you received is georgius. Sad that the other one disappeared.

Oh yes I really missed you, I'm so glad you're back. Sorry to hear the weekend wasn't so relaxing.

Your fall quilt is wonderful. I wonder if the first one will show up sometime in the next few months. Alicia made a really nice replacement.

Your swap quilt is cute you got!

Did you know if you send books book rate the post office has the right to open the box apparently to check and make sure its books! Yep and did you know that then if the box arrives and half the books are missing,(unless insured), to bad your loss! Who would think you need to insure books right, they don't break. My friend and I send books back and forth all the time to each other, we learned the hard way, if you send them book rate you better insure them! Just telling what I was told at the post office when I went asking about my missing books! Amazing isn't it!
