First I want to say thank you for all your supportive comments and e-mails regarding the challenges facing my family right now. Thank you for indulging my request for thoughts and prayers!
A couple of weeks ago Karen at Log Cabin Quilter started pulling quilt tops 'out of the closet' and was doing an incredible show and tell. This pink and brown triple nine patch spoke loudly to me - I opened her blog that morning and was instantly in love. :-) I left a comment and told Karen how much I liked it and the next thing I know she's telling me that it's now mine and she's going to send it to me. WHAT????? No, she wasn't kidding and the box arrived earlier this week along with three pieces of fabric that will work nicely for backing. This is the picture that Karen showed on her blog - I hope she won't mind that I 'borrowed' it - I wanted you to see what I saw. :-) I have a huge pile of flimsies that need to be quilted - I have a tendency to put it off. (they do take up less room that way - LOL) I made a promise to myself that I will quilt this one very, very soon.
Scroll down - there was an additional surprise in the box!
I was shocked to find this beauty in the box, as well. I've never made a double wedding ring quilt but it's been on my "someday I want to make" list. Isn't it wonderful? I was so shocked to find this in the box that I had to double check with Karen to make sure that she meant to send this to me. Yes, it was meant to be mine!
I've been feeling a little sad and weepy lately - these wonderful surprises and others I've received recently have helped put a smile on my face. Karen, thank you so much!
I hope that you're having a wonderful day - thank you so much for popping in to visit with me and do come again soon.
