Last week, before my trip, I was feeling kind of blue. And on the bluest day, the mailman delivered a little package from a sweet, thoughtful friend. Carrie went to a quilt show and found something she thought I would love - and boy was she right! Isn't that fabric gorgeous?? And the card too - oh it made my heart sing!
Carrie, you just have a knack for making people feel special. Thank you SO much, my sweet friend. Not only did she lift my spirits [before I knew I was going to the Lake, imagine that] but she also got me started on a new set of stitcheries to go with the fabric!
Tonight while I was blog surfing, I came across a new quilt-along. This is a good one - it's for free-motion quilting! I really need this, I'm not brave when it comes to fmq and I really want someone to hold my hand and tell me how to go about it. I think it will be GREAT fun. Unless it comes out really bad, and then I probably won't tell you about my efforts. Go see Christina at A Few Scraps to sign up - she's also having a give-away!
I probably won't post the rest of the week - we're hoping to go to Port Huron to meet friends at the beach there, and the Woodward Dream Cruise is getting into high gear, for the grand parade on Saturday. It shouldn't be as hot as it was last year, so we're going to be there as much as we can. I can't get enough of vintage cars - and there are some beauties! Have a WONDERFUL week, everyone!
