Warm, Fuzzy Feelings!

How good can life get? I have been happily working in 'My Studio' preparing the first block of my Civil War Bride Quilt and the Postie arrived!

See to the left - a Signature Block from Stephanie of Loft Creations. Stephanie hasn't joined the Swap, but has sent me a block anyhow - I will treasure it, thanks Stephanie - I'm quite overwhelmed! And oopsy! I have covered the signature on this little note - earlier in the week I received this little note with a pattern of Stephanie's sent to me by Baby Girlfriend!, Shari. Oh, I have been so happy!
As I was pulling out of the garage last Tuesday to go to Girlfriends! Day - dear Ann, my next door neighbour came to the car and asked if she could weed my front garden. Of course, there were great protests on my part and what can one do with such a wonderful gesture - Ann is formerly an English lass - she insisted it was such a lovely she wanted to spend it in the sunshine!
My heart is very warm, so I thought I would like to share this feeling with you all!

Hi Lurline
I will be watching the progress of your Civil War Bride Quilt with much interest. that Bag has such personality and I know your version will look wonderful. We had wonderful Spring weather today too. It does make you want to get out into the garden. My Vegetables literally sing in this weather :-)

Special gestures from special people for a special lady!

Is there anything better than a 'warm and fuzzy' feeling?

What would we do without our friends! The block is lovely, too.

Diane said...

My mother in law came to visit for several weeks and she got my flower beds in good order right away. I was so happy she came to help, since I am not that good at it. I would rather spend my time sewing than pulling weeds.

Such a lovely gesture -- could she drop by here, perhaps tomorrow? I have a few weeds she can play with -- I'll try to have some sunshine, but also some shade. The high 90's make the sunshine hard to take!
