A Bad Day Made Good

I had a couple of bad days this week mostly dealing with sub-contractors and such. On an especially bad day Wednesday when I was about to pull out my hair trying to get the gas company to finish hooking everything up for our gas fireplace, not that we need it right now in the hazy, hot and humid weather, the postman brought me a pleasant diversion. Libby was celebrating her one year blog anniversary with a drawing and I won! Please check out this prolific quilter's blog for some beautiful quilts.

The package arrived and I ripped into it. It was put together so nicely with her beautiful handmade card.
There is not much a quilter enjoys more than getting fabric in the mail unless it is fabric, a pattern and chocolate! Quilters and chocolate just seem to go together for some reason. My husband and I have been enjoying the See's candy so much. Thanks Libby!

In the meantime I've been doing a lot of sewing trying to get my mind off the summer full of workers in the house but I am ready for all the work to be done which it seems like it may be. The rest is up to us to finish which will probably take years! If you're looking for me I'll be right here.


  1. What lovely gifts you received! Enjoy your sewing and thanks for sharing Libby's blog.

  2. Wow - love that quilting *s* Glad your treat arrived just at the right time. One of the best things about shopping at the See's store is the free sample you always get . . . yummy!

  3. The gifts look so inviting to be opened with the pretty tissue wrappings.

  4. Looks Lovely! How are you liking your stitch regulator? I wish my machine was able to accept one but alas no.

  5. Great package! I hear those See's candies are really good.
    It will be so nice when the workers are gone from your home. Sure, you have to do some finishing yourself, but that's half the fun of having a house.

  6. Such special and uplifting gifts!

    They really were the best thing to make a bad day good!

    Hope things will be good for you this week!



I pray that risen from the dead,
In glory I will stand,
A crown perhaps upon my head,
And a needle in my hand.
