I haven't even had time to properly peruse it yet, but I am excited because if I can make things like the rest of you are making - this has to be a good thing. No more jealousy. Time to join in.
The postman also brought my name tag for the FQ Retreat. It was made by Carol, who I look forward to meeting at the Retreat. She was thrown in the deep end for this swap I think, as it was her very first one. Therefore it amazes me how well she has done. Because I got not one, but two wonderful name tags. One on a lanyard and one with a pin - so I can choose which to use according to what I am wearing, etc.
|Love the ribbon used for the lanyard.|
Not only did she send me two name tags but Carol included these lovely place mats too. I feel like I have been totally spoiled. Thank you, Carol!
Meanwhile, I have no sewing to brag about. I have done a little on my Stitch Tease block but I am not allowed to show that here as it is all top secret until next year when each person in the bee receives their pieced quilt top. All very hush hush and exciting beyond words.
I am down to one sick child at home. One sick car still at the garage. But it is a long weekend, and I am taking Emily to London tomorrow. That will break the monotony!
