we are back from a long weekend at the beach and I completely turned off my brain while we were gone. But then I stuffed red envelopes all last night with grammie's help and couldn't sleep, so I am officially back. I have crazy brain. I need to make extra some room in my life for two things. more quilts and pies. quilts and pies, quilts and pies. and I got a lovely needlework project at the coast, will show the kit later-very excited about this.
This sweet little bag here was made for my neighbor who made me some earrings to match the dress that I made in this fabric. So, she got a bag out of the scraps. . .it was kismet because she made the earrings to match the dress without even knowing it. green and orange are wonderful.
and I got this in the mail last week from thimble. the button of the month for June-so thrilling!! you know, I don't get mailorder, so I didn't realize how fun it really was to get something in the mail that you sort of forgot you signed up for. . .you know? I love magazine subscriptions too for this very reason. although I get none now (except ms kids and everyday food, both gifts, for which I am very grateful).
okay-my head is all over. need to tie up loose ends for mailorder (some e-mails I need to reply to) and then a quilt is on deck. And then pie! And soon we will have the pdf available for those of you able to crack the secret word. I will give you a hint if it's too hard (Pete said it was, I beg to differ)
