Oh boy it has been a crazy week. First of all I woke up sick on Monday morning knowing that I had to be dead to miss work on a holiday week so I went in. All I wanted to do is lay my head down on my pillow I felt achy my chest hurt etc. tried to get an appointment with my doctor but she is off on Monday so I wanted to see my second choice but they could not work me in. So after lunch I went in and waited so they could work me in. Waited for over 2 hours and fell asleep in the waiting room. (Hope I did not snore) lol. My blood pressure was up so she did an EKG it was fine so the next thing she had me do was go and get a chest x-ray. She gave me a prescription for antibiotics.
My sweet hubby cooked most of the Thanksgiving dinner. He is such a good cook and I am so grateful. Well I am feeling much better today and ready to get some things done.
I joined in one of Cheryll's swap's at http://stitchingcubbyhole.blogspot.com/ Once a Season Swap and the theme this time was summer since it is summer time in Australia. To my surprise when I open my mail box there was a gift in there for me and when I opened it I was over joyed at the mini quilt Sharon from http://lilabellelane.blogspot.com/ made me. Oh my gosh it is filled with the cutest reproduction fabrics ever.
The back of my mini quilt has paper doll cloths on it. They are sweetest things.
Just look what else she included in my package. 5 inch squares of reproduction fabrics, the cutest little fox, paper and she had the Christmas ornaments wrapped separately for Christmas. I am so lucky to have had such a wonderful swap partner THANK YOU so much Sharon you are such a sweet heart. Thank you Cheryll for the wonderful swaps they are so much fun.
A couple of weeks ago Hobby Lobby had there mannequins on sale so I bought one and this one is much better than the wire one I had. For my birthday Nancy one of my coworkers had given me this lace dress that fits her perfectly. Nancy had given me the purple hat a few months ago as a surprise.
Nancy also included this hand stitched quilt top and little ice skates. Oh my gosh I was jumping up and down literally with excitement. Nancy knows me so well and knows just what I love. I can never thank her enough for all the treasures she finds me. Thank you so much Nancy.
Thought I would show you the little heart needle case I made to go into one of my orders. I had found this felt at the Quilt Festival and have been itching to make something with it.
This is the inside. I think I should of done more to the inside it looks kinda bla.
Hope everyone is enjoying there Saturday. The weather is just gorgeous here makes me want to have a picnic in the back yard.
