Before Christmas I participated in a fun contest over at Angelina's blog, and I won this cute potholder. It came along with one of Phillip's postcards which I love. The contest was about the worst gift you ever got and I thought the salad spinner from an old boy friend was pretty bad but turns out there are some people with some real bad-gift stories. I really enjoy Angelina's blog, I find it interesting and thought provoking, and often eerily like looking back on the years where Frankie was young. I would have enjoyed standing in the back of the classroom with Angelina. I always felt a little bit of an outcast during the school years.
I've been sewing. A lot. The mystery quilt clues are going out this week so I have to get on the ball, I'm not all that much farther ahead of the crowd. You can see here I'm ready to get busy, coffee, sewing, Sidekick. Gotta keep in contact with my peeps. The quilt is turning out cute. I'll post photos once the quilt is revealed in a few weeks.
Some people have asked just what a mystery quilt is. A mystery quilt is one where you don't know what the finished quilt looks like. Clues are passed out giving you fabric amounts, cutting and sewing instructions and you follow along doing each step not knowing where its all going to end up. This quilt we're working on is twin size I think. Or close to it. I think I'm on step 4.
And this is a pretty box of spring. Soon to be in a pot on my porch. I hope you have a super day my dears!
