I'm sure alot of you already know but our friend and blogger pal Mar passed away. I never met Mar but did exchange several emails with her. She and her friends were going to come over for my bloggers party last year after road but just couldn't make it. I had hoped to meet her this year but as you know she was in the hospital. This is a very sad day for me. When you meet bloggers it's as if you have met them and became great friends with them. My very good friend Cheryl emailed me this morning to tell me about Mar. As Loz said today in her blog post, if you love someone tell them how you feel. You may not have that chance tomorrow. And if someone makes you unhappy,move on there are way too many nice people out there. WE will all miss you Mar!!!!! So how's the sewing up there?? Any great shops to tell us about??? I bet you have all the fabric you could ever use don't you?? We're all envious down here. But we're looking up at ya!!!!
Today I sat in my sewing room where I am the most happy and did a little project. As you know I have more fabric than one person could ever use. So.............I whipped up this little quilt.
While I was cutting for mine I also got carried away and cut several kits for another one. I have 7 kits that include the binding, backing and all the little coin pieces are cut out for you. And if you want one they are $25 plus shipping. Just send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org The fabs vary from kit to kit but the colors are all close. The rick rack looking fab is for the back. The little quilt measures 22x24 1/2 inches. Also I have some good news, I'm getting back in to the quilt shop business. It's still in the works but very soon I'll have more to tell. I'll be at market in April. WOOHOOOOOO I can't wait.
I finished my 9patch that I bought at the Quilter's Coop. I hear that my buddy Cheryl went there and she had to get one too. It was cute huh Cheryl??? And so fast. Anne your kit will be going out on Tuesday.
Looky here!!! My friend Suzanne sent this to me. Can you see what she wrote on the outside of that box?? LOLOL Uh..............the answer is nooooooooooooo. Although I do love her little hat. Remember when we had to wear those bathing caps? I hated those things. But her tummy does resemble mine at the moment. Thank you Suzanne. I left her on the kitchen counter so I can remember not to put fattening stuff in my big mouth. lolol
This is a calendar that Boo had made for me for Christmas. I just love it!! He also had one made for Hunka. It is the best!! This is the cover and inside are all these photos of us that pertain to each month. I can't wait to flip the pages. This was from when we all went on a cruise last year. I also got a gift certificate to Fatquartershop and a Starbucks card. What could be better I ask you??
Here's Jan. The Dick Clark photo on for Jan. 1st is from a giant cardboard cut out of Dick that Wilster has in his laundry room. Every time I would walk by there I would think Dick was standing in there. LOLOL
Wilster gave me one of those photo boxes that you load photos in and if keeps flipping thru all the photos. I've got to load it so we can sit and watch. I love seeing photos. He sent us a card so I can put pics on it. Just got to figure out to work it. LOLOL Great gifts don't you think?
Last but certainly not least I received this little guy in the mail last week. Monica had a St. Joe that helped her sell her house and someone suggested I ask her about it in the hopes that mine too would sell. And low and behold look what showed up. Joe himself. He's here to help a gal out. Now where to put him. Monica said he would prefer to stay inside. She buried her's outside and it took awhile to sell her house. So let's keep him warm inside and let him work his magic for me.
He's in my sewing room watching over my fabs and my pincushion collection...........
Or should I put him right by the front door..............maybe he can talk those perspective buyers into moving in!!!!
Or...................should he join Annie and teddy at the table?????
How about............in this nice little setting??? lolol I'll have to think on this for awhile. I'm just glad Joe-Joe has come to live with us for awhile. Thanks Monica!!! If I sell the house what is your cut of the cashola??? I'm just askin...........(how did ya like that Loz?)
Now go off and remember to tell your friends and family that you love them and appreciate them. You may not get another chance tomorrow.
