Susan's blog and later found out I'd won!! The gift is from this lovely site:
http://www.fluffysheepquilting.blogspot.com/ sent all this straightaway with a sweet note. It's like Christmas in May!! Please click on their sites for a visit---both fun places to spend some time :-)
Also won some fabric fat quarters from Maureen that should be arriving shortly! Such a jackpot/bonanza of goodness for just typing my two cent's worth on a post I enjoyed....it doesn't get better than that!!
BQFF Barb stopped over Memorial Day with German chocolate truffles for me and DH on her return from her trip home. AND BQFF Judy sent a written tutorial example of some FMQ'g we saw! (she knows I'm a 'show me' type learner :-)

This funny little thing is a dahlia bulb given to all the guests at a recent bridal shower...
Enjoy this long weekend. Remember to say thankyou to someone who's served our country. And remember those who aren't here to thank........
Time to put the sprinklers back on...!

Making a new batch of baby burpees and a couple Farmer's Wife blocks to follow later this week, I hope.
Had an extra special Mother's Day at our DD and DSIL's. They made brunch and gave us 2 moms a wrist corsage!! Forgive the hand that needed lotion, and isn't that so pretty??
Enjoy the beeeeautiful Spring weather this week--and hope we all get some sewing in!! Or gardening would be just as great! :-)

More flowers coming into the garden scheme. My sis works at a big greenhouse and always gifts me a HUGE planter for Mother's Day (when their business really gets going!!) I am a lucky gal :-)
If I'm not around to post in the next few days, Happy Mother's Day to all moms, aunts, sisters, grandmas and girlfriends !!

you know the Zambonie machine comes out between periods and swipes everything smooth and clean...And looks so F U N while it's doing that!!!
Well--the sewing cave is in major dissarray at the moment. And a Zamboni would be just the thing to send in !
Wishful thinking asside, my DH will be busy this weekend with the Michigan Turn Marshalls and the office is closed till Monday for me......So a 3 day weekend of sewing can begin as soon as I get my **** (self :-) in there and reorganize a bit !
Let's see if I can distract you (and me :-) for a while longer by showing you some beautiful fabric recently purchased on sale...
That's the ticket!! Here's the choices for the next NYB block:
The lily of the valley idea came from Fun With Barb's blog (check out her great blog!!) and the pretty teacup was purchased for our anniversary..(i have started a nice collection after 36 years)
Have a marvelous weekend--we're in for a beauty weatherwise--so enjoy whatever you do.
Me.....I'll be in (and out!) of the cave...Progress reports to follow randomly ;-)
