Yesterday the mail came late and this was in it. My first box of blocks for the APQ Block swap from Katie!!! I am very happy! The blocks are perfect and she also sent me a darling bracelet (it's actually a scissors fob!), a little flower pin cushion and chocolate. After being in the mail truck all day, the chocolate was very soft, so it went in the refrigerator right away, but I tested it this morning and it is wonderful (I am addicted to chocolate). I have my May & June blocks ready to mail and will send the May blocks to Karen in England soon.I received another surprise on Saturday from DS#3/DIL. The card says Happy Mother's Day, but it was a week early, so I think it is actually a thank you for going to take care of Jonah. The florist said that I would be receiving another bouquet, because the order was for Lilies and they didn't have any - so I'll be getting a Lily bouquet at some time this week!!! That's a good deal!
Since we arrived home, I have been sick with laryngitis, but not feeling too sick to sew. I finished this doll quilt as well as 14 more star blocks.
This baby quilt was actually finished before, but doesn't have the binding on. It is for our niece, who is expecting in July. I'm saving hand work for our next trip, so I'm not rushing to get the binding on. We plan to deliver it in person on our way home from Oregon.
Our next trip is planned for May 25 or 26. We'll be going to Oregon to visit DS#1 & family. Our GS will be graduating from 8th grade and GD will be having a birthday while we're there. In the mean time, I need to get a bunch of hand work projects ready to work on in the truck as well as piecing to do with my featherweight.
