These beautiful squares arrived today from Sandra! They are so sweet. I love the way she sewed them into gift-wrap packages. Thank you Sandra for these beautiful squares! My stitching has been for Sandra, so nothing to share here yet.
Earlier today I picked up some more pretty fabric – I love these soft rose prints. I have been to 7 quilt shops in the past 4 days, I did not have enough of the light fabric I’m using around the blocks on my Lazy Girl’s Jane Austen Quilt (at least that is what I’ve named it). It doesn’t look like a special color but there are many colors of off white and I finally found a shop today that had a (nearly) matching color. I have done all this driving in 95+ degree weather with NO air conditioning in my car. It is a good thing that it goes in for repairs tomorrow – that will keep me out of the quilt shops – oy! My new sewing machine is going to have a very warm welcome!
PS – Current reports from the kids in Michigan include, tubing, the blob, and dinner with grandparents. Aunt Janet lives on the lake and my parents and Jerry’s parents live in the same town. They have all mentioned how much they love the Food Network. We got rid of television almost 4 years ago – so my kids are enjoying some time with satellite tv as a rare treat too.
