One of my favorite prim blogs to read is Christine's at Preferably Prim. Christine lives in Ireland but she definitely has a flare for Americana. I won this stocking that she made, and I love it. It's hanging on a door just inside our house; I think it looks perfect. Thanks Christine! Please check out her blog.
And my blogging/quilting bud Melanie at Covered Porches sent me two pieces of a sagey green fabric to use in my Hop To It quilt. I think this shade of green will really add the spark to this quilt that I've been looking for. I'm also thinking maybe one of the fat quarters needs to be made into a miniature quilt, but I'm still thinking through that one.
If you haven't checked out Moda's Bakeshop yet, here's the link for Angela's quilt. Angela, a couple of my daughters, and a couple of our friends started a small quilt group. We've only been able to get together a couple of times, and then summer came. I'm looking forward to sewing with this group once summer winds its way down. She is a real inspiration to me, and her modern style of quilting is really growing on me. Angela, thank you so much for your friendship!
And if all this isn't happy enough, we'll be getting a new granddaughter on Monday. Jenny and Randy's doctor has decided it's time for this baby to be born, so they will be making an early-morning trip to the hospital. This is the third grandchild that has been born because of a doctor's decision instead of the Lord's will. But that seems to be the way things go now, so we roll with the flow and pray for the best.
Generous friends, great mail days, family, and one more baby to squeeze. Life just doesn't get much sweeter or better than this.
