Chelsey worked last night, so I stayed up and quilted. I’m up to 48 blocks completed on my red/green project. I’ve been kind of calling it the Blessings quilt, because it started out with the Yuletide Blessings fabrics. I’m shooting for 72 blocks to make it queen size. So maybe I can work on it again tonight.
It’s snowing; we’re expecting 5 to 8 inches by evening. It’s beautiful, I’m just nervous about driving in it. But with life in the U.P. you have to just get out in it--- because the snow isn’t going anywhere for a while.
Today’s photo is a late Christmas gift from a friend.
An Internet friend—three year’s ago I would have been mortified at the thought… and my father probably would still be mortified if I discussed it with him. But these gifts came from someone I’ve never met…and I think she knows me pretty well.
She made the purse herself—she knows I love old keys—Look at the fabric, and the inside is the reverse. The talent some people have impresses me so much.
She recognizes life would not be the same without Sharpie markers. And when life is at it's worst music from when I was a teenager seems to fix it.... Whenever she sends a surprise, she always throws something in for my kids Sunday school class—she sent rubber stamps this time. I told her that life is better with dark chocolate and she found a candy bar I’d never seen before (notice all I have left is the wrapper). The scarf even has an old key on it.
We can’t get DMC floss at our Wal-Mart anymore and I whined about it to her and she became my personal shopper and sent the floss complete with a bow.
I had Christmas all over again when I opened the box.
I better bundle up for work.
