Fun News of This and That


I got my bundle of love from Cyndi in the mail this week!
I had won a bundle of fat quarters of the yummy Sew Cherry fabric...
but that's not all!!!
Cyndi, from Bluebird's Wing is always so sweet... she included an assortment of Kate Spain
desk items and a cute lunch tote that it all came in. 
Thank you so much! I feel so lucky!

Then today at my lunch time I received this little package of goodness:
 
Here is a slightly blurry picture of a layer cake group from
Me and My Sister designs. I get to start working on a
shop sample using this group and the pattern you see here!
Lucky me again!
Of course, it will have to wait a tiny bit...
I do have a certain Le Petite project to work on this weekend...
because we are just days away from the first of September when we will be having the
Le Petite Parade of "George"!!! And I can tell you... George is lookin' gooood!
(edit: oops, I meant August)
But there was one more thing I had wanted to tell you that was both new and fun...
hmmm,
did I already tell you???
It had something to do with bundles of love... packages of goodness...
oh,
I know...

I'm going to be a grandma!!!!!!
Lucky me!

Congratulations, being a Grammie has been the best thing in my life. I didn't think anything could beat being a mother till I had two grandsons. One little guy was born blind but he is such a joy and taught me so much, God always has a reason bring these children into your life. I babysit him three times a week and we just laugh all the time. Get busy on those quilts.

Jeanna said...

You are going to "LOVE IT".... being a gramma.... makes up for any non-fun events we had in raising our kids!
LOL.... Congratulations! I had no idea what my parents were talking about, until I became a gramma too!
So exciting.... there are lots of fun things to sew.... besides a great quilt or 2 or 3! I mean, there are quilts for all times of year! Right!
Enjoy the excitement...

Congrats a billion times over. It is just the best. I am going to be one now for #2. And it is just as exciting. I love that little block by Marby. It is so incredibly cute. I had to stop and squint at it. The applique was so perfect, it looked like printed fabric.
