LIFE JUST DOESN'T GET MORE FUN THEN THIS!!! PART 1

I am always tired on the days I teach class...standing up all day and talking takes alot out of me.

We did get the machines in today...and they are soooooooooooooo awesome. Janome's. They only sell the Brothers here, the low end Brothers and well...they just won't go over bulk fabric and the tension is always messing up. So...Minnie went off island and got some Janome's.....just wonderful.

Now....that was part of the good day. Here is the rest.

I had an awesome mail day. Here is a panel my sister sent, have your checked out her panels from her store? I think I am going to take off the Happy Valetine and make this a fall wall hanging....the debate is still out. Or at the rate I will be going, just make it for Valentines and maybe it will be done by then???



Jennifer sent me this tissue holder and card holder....what a terrific job she did... I am so amazed at everyone's expertise in sewing, I hate comparing but my work is not as good as the items that have been given to me. I need to up my abilities.
Thanks Jennifer.



Then Miss Mary sent me these fat quarters.....for the life of me I was stumped. I could not figure out why until I went to her blog...she had a giveaway a while back and decided to send everyone something that entered. It wasn't a little something either. Thanks Mary.



Why part 1, because tomorrow I will continue my mail day...just too awesome. It seems that the mail is taking forever and when I do get mail, it is in bulk. But hey, who am I to complain..it is mail and it makes me soooooooooooooooooooooo happy, just warms my pea picking heart....or is that pea brain? Hummmmm

Woww, what a day. New machines to play with, a panel to think about and a couple of useful little gifts and some fabric to stroke. What more can a girl ask for?

I had Judy in NC send me a cute little quilt made from the panel that you had up last week. Check it out, it's the second quilt down.

I think its all the talking when teaching that poops me out...I don't want to talk to anyone when I get home. :)

I just love that baby quilt...the applique fabric is fantastic. I love that its clearly a baby quilt without being cutesy. I'm trying to do get to that place.

I also got some Valentine fabric last week, and I think I've decided what I'm going to do with it. Have fun making your project, whether autumn or Valentine.

I love good mail days :)

I love that panel. I too cut off the Valentine sentiment. I added some more borders around it and used it to make the backing of a quilt for my first grand baby. I love the whole thing.

Yvette said...

How exciting on getting the new machines. I am sure they will be well loved. Janome's are a great, reliable machine.
