Well, I have just had the best week so far. Really, the past seven days have been wonderful. Last Thursday I had lunch with a long lost friend, and I shared the little giftie I made for her. In the mail this week, I received a lovely card from Nat and the little book in the picture. We had shared with each other that we both love shoes, and just can never have too many, so the little book of quotes all relates to friendships and shoes. Just too cute! The card says 'I'm looking forward to kicking off our friendship again'. So sweet!
Also in the picture is a 'tumbler' template. I had seen the tumbler quilt on Dawn's blog, and thought it was wonderful, so cruised ebay once more to see what I could come up with. I have a different package of Pepper Cory's templates, so when I saw this one, I knew it would be a good one to have. The thing I like about this one is I can use it with my 3.5" pre cut strips. Yay! It arrived this week, and I really want to play with it, but I'm going to wait until I get some other things finished.
Also, by popular request is a picture of the 'Hat Boxes' quilt that Linda gave to me while I was in the US with her earlier this year. This quilt is one of my most treasured posessions, and it's on display on the quilt rack in my lounge room.
The quilt is just beautiful, and Linda has made it up beautifully. I can't tell you too much about it, as I don't know who the pattern designer was. I know Linda had it professionally quilted. The fabric is just gorgeous, I could just look at it all day long.
Also, one of my non-blog friends asked me when the picture in my profile was taken. Well, that's an easy one, it was taken in April this year while I was in the US. You can just see the corner of Linda's blue shirt on the bottom left there. We're in McClintocks bar at Pismo Beach. I'm amazed I look anything more than tired, as it was the same day I arrived in the US, so I'd just spent 16 hours flying, and several hours in the car that day! I think I was running on adrenaline!
Today I'm going to spend some time in Cameron's room tidying and culling the toys. Wish me luck people, this is going to be a big job!
