First, remember how I told you that Mary who blogs at Needled Mom
Well, this week I received an AMAZING squishy package from Mary ...... she made 4 blocks for me!!!! How sweet is that???? Like I said before, Mary is a very gifted Encourager!!!
Oh MY!!!! I am so IN LOVE with these beautiful blocks!!! Didn't she do a fabulous job? They are the perfect colors, and those fabrics.... wow! Look at the fun prints on this one...
....... the cow and pig are hysterical :*)
And I love the beautiful patterns in this one....YUM!
Bright orange always makes me smile! Love those orange dots on the yellow background ...
The mixture of soft patterns with bold geometrics in this one....perfect!!!!
Mary, I am thrilled and so happy with these blocks! What's most amazing to me is how much these fabrics look like the ones I have in my stash, yet I don't have a single one of them! I would have made these exact blocks myself if I had those fabrics... we must be quilting twins! I bet we would have a ball playing in each other's stash LOL!!! THANK YOU so much - these blocks will have a very happy home in my Happy Dance quilt, and I will smile every time I spy one of your blocks in it :*)
Then, on Tuesday, I met with Libby who blogs over at Life On The Hill.
Libby is a fairly new blogger who lives very near me and we decided that we'd like to meet up one day and share blogging tips and get to know each other better. What a great time we had!!!
It was almost the meeting that never happened though, because I confused it with my Wednesday meeting.... I was waiting for her at the wrong place and time!!! Once I realized my mistake of course I rushed to the correct place, and she was sweet enough to ignore my confusion and wait for me. See what I mean about meeting such nice people in Blogland? I had to laugh at the two us sitting there at McDonalds with our computers and tablets, like we were techy queens!!! Of course, we both forgot to get a picture of us together :( But we'll do that next time - and there will definitely be a next time! Thanks Libby for such a fun day! :*)
Please be sure to go over and check out her blog and give her some love!!! She blogs about our meeting too, HERE, as well as a fun new quilt tutorial she will be starting soon for one of her own designs called Dusk to Dawn - I love that quilt!
This has been such a busy week, and there hasn't been much time for relaxing, but I've managed a little knitting in the evenings. I've gotten these about 10 rows into the increases for the heels.
I also picked up some beautiful and funky yarn at Goodwill the other day for a song!
Look at these luscious colors!!!! And the texture is really nice! That dark color is really a deep forest green, not black. I have no idea what I'll make with this, but I'm thinking a nice cowl.
I wish you all a Blessed Easter weekend!
Good Friday is always so bittersweet to me.
It represents the day my Savior suffered and died for me and you.
and it breaks my heart that He had to go through that for me.....
But I'm so glad He did!
And I'm so glad that was not the end of the story.....
Hugs & Blessings!
