October Skies

I had a piece of registered mail at the Post Office since the first of the month.
It is so inconvenient to go there but after my last "reminder" yesterday... I decided to go ahead and stop at the Post Office on my way to work today. They opened their window for me even though it was before time to open. I had a package from Malaysia? What could that be?
It was my wonderful Friendship Bag! It was waiting there for me for two weeks!
My swap partner is Aida! Thank you so much! I love it!
I can't believe that she that she hand quilted this little bag! Goodness! And do you see all the extra goodies that she added to my bag? So sweet and thoughtful! The little details are incredible! I wish I could have gotten a better picture
of the embroidery work on the heart. I am in awe!

I love October...as if I haven't told you that enough!
I was having lunch with my friend Patty today and I couldn't help taking
a few photos of the wonderful clouds in the sky.






I just love the day after a storm and thought I would share that with you!
I am busy finishing up the details for my retreat on Friday.
Lots of last minute loose ends and still name tags to make
and door prizes to package up! The list goes on...

Love your goodies from your friendship partner--very pretty!!! I also got a package today that had been "floating" around on the ups truck--because the driver didn't want to walk up a set of steps to deliver it--at least that is my "excuse" for him--LAZY--it had my new fabric for OCT Cindy Lou Who--so you know what I will be working on tomorrow????
hugs, Di

I got a package today too! It was the Cindy Lou Who pattern plus 4 other Schnibbles pattern that I liked and ordered. Sure hope at least one of them will be in the Year of Schnibbles. If not, I guess I will have to have fun on my own.

Those clouds go me through the rainy summer we had here. There's something so uplifting about the clouds after a storm
