A little surprise landed in my mailbox this weekend.
Recently Wendy posted a challenge she was taking called Brooms Out Of The Closet. She had a drawing of all the bloggers who left a comment on that post - YIPPEE! Her daughter drew my name. Tell me, what girl doesn't like to win a prize. For me, it's just the joy of hearing my named called. But then to receive such a fun package in the mail, it was an extra treat.
The charm pack of Cornucopia fabrics is just perfect. A couple of months back I purchased the charm pack of wovens from the same line with plans to make the currently postponed Easter project. Maybe in the back of my mind I knew I would end up with an even better piece if I waited just a little longer.
But wait - there's more. She included a delightful pattern by a designer in her area. It's right up my alley. Nice and scrappy. It will definitely get added to my list of quilts waiting to be made. Thank you Wendy for such a delightful package - quilt bloggers are just the best.
I'm still trying to get back to my regular daily routine. Seemed like I was spinning my wheels last week and really accomplished nothing. Today, no more sleeping in. I was up early (not bright- we haven't and won't see the sun today) By the end of the week, I should be back to my usual daily cycle of chores and quilting. Hubby mentioned yesterday that he hadn't seen me sewing lately - that's a sure sign that I need to get back to my machine. I think I hear it calling my name.
