I got the most beautiful bracelet in the mail this week.  A couple of months ago I sent Trish from a couple of books from the Elm Creek series and in return she sent me this beautiful bracelet.  You must visit her blog I just love all the fabrics she uses in her quilts.  Thank you so much Trish I just love the bracelet you sent me.  You are a sweet heart. 


I found the red rick rack I need for the borders of my Swell Day quilt.  I found it in Ohio at Blackberry Patchworks Phyllis was so helpful all the way to mailing me a sample.  Phyllis is a sweet heart I really enjoyed talking to her.  She always made me laugh.  To visit Phyllis you can go to

I had lunch with Joyce this Tuesday from it is so much fun catching up with her.  We did our Christmas swap and had a great lunch at laMad.  My sweet David took off today and he is going to take me to lunch and to the quilt store.  Yeahhh!  Hope everyone is having a great day.


  1. Gorgeous bracelet. Can't wait to see the rickrack inplace on the quilt. Love rickrack but hate sewing it down! I am so jealous that you and Joyce can lunch together! Lukcy girls!

  2. Love the bracelet too!
    I adore rick rack on anything especially quilts.
    So great that you get to have lunch with other bloggers.

  3. What a beautiful bracelet! Love the rick rack too. You sure are going out to lunch a lot, girl, how fun is that!

  4. Lucky you to receive such a beautiful gift. I like ric rac too, it reminds me of when I was little in the 60's and 70's ric rac was on everything.

  7. Hi Donna,
    I am so glad you got a little motivated by the post. I hope you make one. If I can do it you can, that's for sure. Now, in what ways are we alike? Like I don't already know :) But really, is it the way that I am attention deficit, can't follow a pattern, have to try to act normal in front of relatives? giggle I'm curious!! Have a great weekend. I'm not sure what to do first, I want to sew and paint and quilt, I can't decide.

  8. What a sweet friend to make that bracelet for you! Glad she had the rickrack you needed!!
