Yes sir it came to me today. I have watched this puppy travel from China to my front door ! I was on the steps with pen in hand to sign for my baby. She is a beaut and oh so fast compared to her older sister. My heart is happy.

A perfect day to get an Fed Ex box and a bonus to see the crocuses up in the yard!


I have been playing with scraps again.....imagine that!!!
Something new for me you know!!

And this is what I have come up with. A cute little quilt for a special niece.
[more on this later]

And a few pictures of other things I have been doing in my Internet silence.

Block of the month that I found on the internet.
[I love,love the internet...don't you?]


A sweet little burp rag with a pretty edge for a friend of Erin's
I love making these sweet things.

Well hope to hear from my friends, good to be back.

Yes my favorite laptop is on the blink so I can not post pictures at least not new pictures! Hopefully this month I can put in a new hard drive and more ram. I think those are the names of things I need in my computer? I am a sewer not a computer person !

Have been busy and much to show for all the time spent with needle in hand.

Have a great week and hope I will be posting again soon.
