I just looove a good pressie in the mail!!! Especially when you were not really expecting anything. Well yes I was, but didn't know exactly when during the 2011 year. Melissa sent me this beeeeeeeeautiful little handmade notebook and bookmark!!!

It was part of the Pay It Forward Giveaway many of us quilting bloggers are in. The notebook is sooo cute with the pretty flower on the front, and the bookmark has the CUTEST brad that is keeping the tassel to the bookmark. If you look close enough in this photo you will see the brad is a silver camera!!!!

I LOVE IT!!!! Thank you sooooooooooooo much Melissa for the sweet little pressie!!!! I know already what I plan to use my little notebook for!!!!

Tonight I finished the Green Scrappy quilt top!!!!

Wooooooooooo hooooooooooooo!!!!!! All I need to do now is serge around the edges to protect them from ravelling. I don't want to layer or quilt this one yet until I get the Red Scrappy Strippy quilt quilted and binded. I put alot of work into that green quilt. And I just looooooooooove how the interweaving pattern turned out. I decided I will keep this quilt to put on William's Big Boy bed when he eventually graduates to that bed. I have some quilt tops already made up for some time that I will use to donate to my Iris Kirby House charity.

William and I have another birthday party to attend this coming Saturday. I am hoping to get out tomorrow afternoon or Friday afternoon to pick up the gift I want us to give. Hopefully that night, I might get back into the Rainbow Stash Challenge. I had a purple/green row by row UFO that has been sitting in my UFO cabinet for ages. I need to size each row and determine how I am going to put the rows together. I will post a photo of the rows on Saturday when I pull them out.

Tomorrow night I need to put away the machine and ironing board and haul out my scrapbooking supplies. I will be working on making William's birthday invitations. His party is at the end of the month and since we have a birthday party to attend this weekend (a little girl from his playgroup) it would be a great time to pass out some of his invitations. It still blows my mind that he will be 1 at the end of the month!!!! I hope every year of his life doesn't go by as fast as this one. He is growing up so fast on me. It makes me sad. SLOW DOWN SWEETIE!!! What's the rush????

(A little stroll down by the ocean close to where our friend and new (almost) 3month old new playdate friend live!!

Sigh..... til next time.

Quiltingly Yours

Wow - your quilt came out beautifully. I have been watching your progress and must admit I could nor picture it all done. Certainly all your hard work paid off - lucky William xx
