I really want to get my last 6 strips sewn together on my Scrappy Bargello. I can't believe it has taken me this long to do it. Yesterday I found these Winter hats on clearance for 2/$1, so I bought 20 of them!!! You say, why 20??
They are child size and I thought I would make them for all the kids in Hunter's class. He is having a Valentine's party in a few days and I thought I would throw these in with their gift bags that we have fixed up. So I decided to embroidery each of their names on them. The boys is embroidered in a varigated green and the girls is in varigated rainbow colors. I have them all done now and it only took me about an hour to finish all 20.
I am so far behind on reading everyones blog. I am so sorry if I haven't commented, I just honestly haven't felt like sitting here at the computer for very long at a time. But I have been wondering what everyone has been up to. I will try to catch up on a few of them tonight.
Here is another photo of Donkey. Doesn't he look so comfy?? As you can see he is sleepin on on of my quilts and a quilt magazine...my kind of cat!
Before I finish my post for the night, I just want to thank everyone again for my quilt and all of the sweet comments and personal emails. I have recieved a few emails from quilters that have gone through the same thing or one of their family. It is so nice to know that someone cares. That just goes to show that "Quilter's Are Special People"
The funniest thing happened this morning. I was at the grocery store doing my shopping and a friend of my mom's walked up to me and said "I heard that you recieved a quilt" I didn't know what to say. I asked how she knew, she said that my mom told this lady's sister and her sister told her. So I told her the story about it and she said that it was about the sweetest thing she had heard of. I felt so PROUD!!! I plan on taking it to my guild meeting at the end of the month to show them what beautiful work that you ladies do.
