Another Great Mail Day!

Don't you just hate days when you go to the mailbox and all you have are bills?? Well...this evening I stopped by the mailbox and had two things in there, the first was a bill and I just stuck it back in the box (I'll get it out tomorrow...maybe) The second was a package from Toni (the quilting pirate) She is such a sweetie and has made my day! So I'm sitting at the mailbox in my car and I just can't wait until I get home to open it so I turn my interior light on so that I can see. The first thing that I pull out is the adorable little Pirate Rubber Duck!!! Now how cute is that?? I just had to giggle when I saw it, it is just so her!!

Next came this beautiful pattern for a wallhanging. It is called "Do The Funky Chicken" It is so cute!
And then I stuck my hand in the package and I could feel fabric (oh what a feeling that is!) I pulled it out and there were lots of Civil War fabrics!!! They are all different from the fabrics that I have so that gives me new ones to use. I had been wanting some reds and yellows but couldn't find any around here!
So THANK YOU SO MUCH! I can't wait to use them! And as far as the little pirate duck goes he now has a new home right beside my sewing machine!
I did a little bit of sewing this evening. I made a tiny bowl for my sister. I don't have a photo of it because she took it home. As usual, I am very tired today and have had two naps and would love to take another one. Mom came out today while I was trying to clean and I think she felt sorry for me because she took my trash out, did my dishes and helped me clean up my bedroom. I'm trying to get my house cleaned up fairly good, I will have company stopping by in a week or so. A friend of Mom's and I guess you could say a friend of mine is stopping by to talk about quilty things. I have known this lady all of my life and I know she is not coming to look at my house but sometimes you just really want your house cleaned for company...
