I love love love happy mail. Probably one of the many reasons I do these swaps. This was made for me by Leila (flickr name needleanddime) Aside from "happy mail" you really get to meet some wonderful crafty people you would never have the experience meeting. Inspiration at the artistry of ones work to name another, but you get what I am trying to say. Thank you Leila. It really is the best.

My "work in progess" piece. Will end up being a crib size quilt. I got to have some sewing time yesterday and it was awesome. Fabric line is Moda Bliss. The gingham is going to be the backing and its going to be sashed in white. At least that is the plan for now. Subject to change.

"We've never been to Great Falls Park"
" OK let's do that"
" Where it is?"
"I don't know- Great Falls?"
I hate to keep comparing BUT after living in upstate NY and seeing Niagara I think it is cheating to call these falls. But it was a pretty day and we had a good walk.
It got us out of the house in case anyone wanted to see it, which they didn't because it was too beautiful to go looking for homes. Maybe next week. Better yet- In God's Time. Have you heard that song yet? Country station. Loved it. Heard it for the first time Friday on the way home from work. It is perfect for us.
Did you have a good weekend?

Congrats to all the girls who got up there and did their thing.
* note* I can't down load the talent show without it crashing my computer so you will have to come over for popcorn and a viewing

Then I went out to lunch with Bethann and she gave me all this sewing stuff and a gift card to JoAnns. Whoot whoo.
Wristlet came from my friend Staci
And owl earrings from sister in law P.J.
And to top it all off. Baby Dooley aka Ella Grace Dooley was born. I found out her name when her mom texted me from the hospital as I was walking big sister Stella. All in all a pretty great day.

I'm not getting much sewing time and I hope that I get a break within the next two week cause I would really love to finish this. The house is getting there. Just need the carpet cleaners to call me back. It's always something I guess. See the line in the carpet by the quilt? Learn from my mistake and never use the spray adhesive on or near your carpet. Pray that comes out.
Have a great day.
