Today is my birthday and it has been a great day, even though I started it out by getting my allergy shots. I am feeling much better than I was on Monday though! And thank you all so much for all of your wonderful compliments on Midi. I cannot stop staring at it! I definitely appreciate all of your kind words.
As I mentioned last night, I received this beautiful Just Nan chart from Carol. Carol sent me the Nan’s Garden chart which is perfect. I love Just Nan designs, although I have only stitched some of her WhimZis. And I am signed up for my very first Round Robin in October, which is a Just Nan RR. So, this will come in so handy! Carol we may have to do a SAL of this design some day in the future! The chart came with the beads and a little frog charm too! Thank you, Carol. (Carol alerted me to the fact that I don’t have a wish list…so I will put that on my list of things to do.)
Also over the weekend, I received this fabulous book on Crazy Quilting from my best friend, Julia. (Excuse the flash in the photo.) I have been wanting to learn some of the embroidery stitches used for crazy quilting and for general embellishment on quilts. This book is great. It has really good descriptions and drawings as well as projects to make and patterns for them. Thank you, Julia!
And today, I received this exquisite kit from my friend Sherri. This is called Elegant Geisha and Sherri knew it would look just perfect with my Kimono quilt I am working on to hang in our dining room. Thank you, Sherri!
I am grateful for wonderful friends!
