Good Mail and Quilt Blocks!

Andrew and I are going to sit down and go over the list of horse names this weekend. I asked Richard what he thought and he is such a sweety, he just said "Whatever you want, Baby, it's your horse." They do tease me because I name every animal that we have on the farm, even the chickens.

Tomorrow will be a long day! Friday is my shopping day, grocery store, feed store, dollar store, Walmart, bank, and post office. Since I do all of my shopping for the week in one day, it takes a several hours. Oh, I also have to drop off snacks for Hunter's snack day to school. Pick up both boys and then on up to pick up Breanna, my stepdaughter for the weekend.

Mom will also be home tomorrow!!!!!! That makes me so happy! She has been gone for a month and now she will be back home for a month. We are going to a quilt store about 2 hours away, actually that is the closest one to me. I told Richard that for my birthday I wanted the fabric, book, and cd to make the Civil War Diary quilt. The book came yesterday, the cd should be here tomorrow, and I will pick up the fabric next week. I called the quilt shop a couple of days ago to get directions since I had never been there and she was so nice. I live in KY but this shop is in WV which I live on the border of WV. She said they had tons of the Civil War Reproduction fabrics. She said it ran about $6.99 yd, I had called another shop that was close to this one and she said that had a FEW and it was $8.50 yd. So needless to say I will be going to WV Quilts. Oh and she asked where I was from and I told her, she asked if I planned on going to the quilt show in April at the Carriage House Inn in Paintsville KY. I go every year, it's about 1 hour away. She said that she would also be there and if I saw anything at her shop that I wanted her to bring to the show just to call a few days before and she would bring it with her. She will be setting up in the vendor area. I thought that was very nice since I have so far to drive. She also said that her shop is about 3000sq ft.

I did get a few blocks done today. I checked the website for the Claudia's Quilt Shoppe BOM and they already have the March block up! I was really excited. As you can see it was a very easy block and I needed 4 of them. I love this very scrappy quilt. Then after I got them finished, I realized that I had not even made my blocks for February! Silly me....

Ran down to the mailbox today and I had some wonderful mail! I recieved this beautiful apple pincoushin from Linda. She had a giveaway on her blog a few weeks back and I won!!! It is so cute! She did a wonderful job on it, it is very well made!!! Almost too pretty for me to stick pins in it! Thanks Linda!
And last the medical news....My nephew had his procedure this morning. He had staph and they had to lance it. Poor thing he is only 18 months old, they said he woke up and hit the nurse!! He is doing much better now! Now for my boys....Hunter has his appointment on Wednesday the 5th for his little procedure and Andrew's appointment is Friday March 14th with the Heart Specialist. I will feel so much better after I get all of this taken care of....and then I can start back with my appointments!!!

So glad your little apple arrived safely, sorry it took longer to get to you than planned.

Looks like you have your plate full for the next week or so.

Glad your Mom will be back home...just having her close for moral support is so uplifting.

Enjoy the fun times, don't streee over the down times and give thanks to God for all. I am a firm believer we do not appreciate the mountain highs if we don't experience the valley lows.

Enjoy your trip to the quilt shop. I'm sure you'll have a great time and enjoy spending time with your mom. We would all love to be able to buy good fabric for those prices.

Prices are crazy at some shops, $10.00 at my closest one per yard. I love the scrap bin, all you can get in a bag for $5.00...won't do for borders, though!
