We Are All Happy!

The puppies are always happy to see our mail-lady - not as happy as I am though! Thank you so much Kathie of Inspired by Antique Quilts. Kathie is one of my oldest and best friends in Blogland and I am so honoured to be the lucky Owner of one of her quilts - the additional red fabrics is for a border - now , in the recent past I have joined in the controversy of hand versus machine quilting this one will certainly be fine hand-quilted - oh, I am so happy - big hugs, Kathie
The pretty little print in the background is from Patchwork on Stonleigh, just a bit too gorgeous to pass by!

Let's get back to Kathie again! She has sent some quick pain relief in her parcel also, lol! Lots of new 10" Kaffe squares here - what a thrill. Really though, today does feel so much better - I'm off to the shop to buy something nice to cook for dinner - it will be good to give the Master Chef a break! Hope your day is happy, too!

Love that center piece in the new fabrics -- someone gifted our group with a bag of left-overs that look a lot like that and I'm going to try to put it together into something nice. Not patterns I'd usually work with but they caught my eye and I want to work with them.

Candace said...
