Still Here

I haven't been anywhere in days.  I'm getting spring fever.  Tomorrow is errand day, thank goodness.

Saturday, the mailman brought me a box.  I was awfully surprised, I hadn't expected anything...but when I saw who it was from, I got excited.  It was from Mickie at Three Poodles and a Nana!  I had to laugh, in the card she said Happy Un-Birthday, but it really was my birthday!

And inside?  The cutest little zipper bags you ever did see....

A charm pack of Good Fortune and a purse insert pattern....

And two darling mini-quilt hangers!

I couldn't believe it!  Thank you Mickie, you are a sweetheart, I love my gifts and will treasure them!  I'm already thinking of a mini quilt design for the Good Fortune - to hang from one of the quilt hangers - I think my mojo was in that box too!

I really am working on something fun, although I don't think I'm allowed to show you yet.  It's not done, anyway.  Tonight I finished the hand stitching, tomorrow will start the wacky borders, and then the serious embellishment will happen....can't wait!  How about just a sneak peek.....

Now I need to go read about 100 blogs, you've all been busy while I was stitching - see you soon!

One more little pic of the puppy bag....

What a good friend, and so lucky timing! The zipper bags are so adorable, especially the puppy. I loved the peek at your project. Both your hand and your machine buttonhole look so nice and neat. I look forward to seeing the whole thing and finding out the whole story.

Happy Birthday!!

Those little bags are so darn adorable! What a sweet package to receive. I like to switch out my purses alot and I keep telling myself I need to make one of those inserts. It looks like a nice pattern so maybe I need to do a little bit of shopping and buy on for myself :)

Love your sneak peek.
