Our UPS guy is always here by 2...no sign of him...I knew my package from The Fat Quarter Shop was due...7 p.m. the truck pulls up across the street...delivers...2 substitute UPS people in the truck...gal driving, guy delivering. He jumps back in the truck and take off...I'm standing in the front window about to cry...next thing I know the dogs are barking like crazy...the gal comes running up on the porch and tosses my package...YIPPEE! it's here. And off she runs to get back to the truck which is stopped 3 houses down the street. I couldn't believe anyone would be running...it was still 93 degrees at 7 p.m. So here's the wonderful new Designer BOM using the Glace fabric...I'm telling you, this is some pretty stuff. I got the finishing kit too and it is gorgeous...this is going to be one awesome quilt. I couldn't resist...I had a dozen other things that I should have been doing, but I cut this month's block out when I was cutting up a storm today. Hmmm, maybe I'll keep up with this one this year too.
I was cutting up a storm today...I like to cut a bunch and then sit and sew...this is pretty scrappy and I wanted to keep the blocks organized...so since I had a bunch of clothes pins out in the garage...not sure why I saved them since our homeowner's association doesn't allow us to hang clothes out...I put them to good use. Each clothes pin has all the pieces for 1 block. I'm getting organized in my old age...LOL!
We're going to see our friend tomorrow and deliver her quilt. We got really good news...even though the tumor was the size of a baseball the pathology report came back benign. Thank you all for your thoughts and prayers. She's not out of the woods yet...there was some damage done to her brain getting the tumor out, but they are all very confident with lots of rehab she'll be back...her speech was the most affected, and she has a good bit of work to do on fine motor skills and her balance but she's strong and has lots of great support. Well, when Andy said this morning that he wanted to go see her tomorrow because they don't do as much therapy on the weekend so her day is more free, I said I can't go unless I get a label on the quilt. He said that he'd been thinking about the label a lot. I left for an hour to walk and came home and he announced that he had the wording done. I got it on fabric, but a border on it and I'm stitching it down tonight. I just have to share with you his wonderful message...
That says it all...my man is a sweetie!
