My mailbox has been full of goodies the past couple of days!
First off was a little box....and look what was inside! Quiltmaker Magazine's 100 Blocks Vol 2 is being released, and my block is in there! It's #174 on page 58...it's also in mini mini form right on this adorable mug!
I'm considering the HUGE PIN ((Did I say HUGE?!))as a coaster, or a wall ornament, not something I would wear on my person! But it reminds me of when I was in high school, and the popular thing going was to cover your purse with as many buttons ((FLAIR!!)) as possible! The goodies came just in time for Halloween!
The bundle of Magazines showed up on my door step on Saturday as Lisa and I were sewing away on her 13 gift quilts. I had to open the package right away and get my hands on these! There will be more fun with this issue, including a designer's blog tour and giveaway! and I'll tell you more about that as soon as I can verify what day I am supposed to post on it! ((>_< Yeah, I've been pretty pedal to the metal these days! I just need someone to tell me where to be and when, and what to do!))
Lisa and I had a great time power sewing on Friday and Saturday.
Friday night she surprised me with an invite to do a walking ghost tour in Old Salem ((It was a gorgeous night for it.))and have dinner at the Salem Tavern as well. We deserved it! We had worked hard all Friday!
Saturday was more of the same...we finished the 13th quilt, and she got binding machine sewn on all of them, sleeves started, while I manned the quilting machine.
My 10 days off is drawing to a close! I'm off to Rochester, Michigan on THURSDAY! It feels like coming home, it's my 3rd Michigan trip this year. Maybe those Michiganders will just adopt me :cD
