The weekend is almost at a close. I’m just not ready. It’s going to take every ounce of determination to get back into the work week.
We had friends over for supper Saturday night. Lots of fun. Chelsey had an away ball game in Gladstone so we shivered and shook but sat through it. It was her last away game in regular season….
The best part of Friday was presents in the mail.
I’ve made a quilting friend who doesn’t have a web journal. She sent me this package of gifts. I’m ready for Spring--- these are flower seeds for hollyhocks and sunflowers. I can’t wait. She pays attention to detail… knows I love green AND plaids. These turned into napkins for my dinner on Saturday night. Someone’s blog had this pattern made up in Amy Butler fabric. I just loved it--- No zippers and it looked pretty forgiving… but at $16.95 it wasn’t worth the gamble. Her fabric store ran a special for patterns $0.99 and she picked it up for me…..again spring has got to get here (boy I’ve got a long wait) . We’ve got a lot in common and can relate to lots of the same things. The internet makes the world a smaller place…..

We are having a beautiful weekend of weather which will really make it hard to get up in the dark to go to work tomorrow. Hang in there.

What a great way to package the seeds ... I'm presuming that the seeds come from your friend's garden and that the photos are from the actual plants? Again, what a great way to share seeds with friends.

I'm with Libby on the "don't wait to start stitching for spring". I do a fair amount of summer sewing when there is still snow on the ground - once the snow is gone and it's warm there always seem to be other things which need doing.

Take care.

What a nice package to get in the mail. Isn't it nice when someone pays close attention to what you like/dislike. Love it

I just came across your blog. Just wanted to let you know that I host a free giveaway every week on my blog for high quality, American made products. I don't make any money off of this, I just want to see more attention given to these products and more jobs stay in America.

I'm trying to spread the word! Come check it out!

Thank you!
