Well, the hubby just got up and I thought I'd have more time, so I guess I gotta do this quick...
Yesterday I went out to the mailbox and found these, finally arrived from England!
Yay! I have all 26 now.
Karen said she thought they were swimming, but I told her they were good and dry when they got here. Maybe they took a detour to visit Florida for spring break and got lost? Lots of sun there - good for drying out waterlogged packages...
Thank you so much! They are more beautiful in person.
Now, what to do to get them all together? Fun for the weekend!
Then, today, when I was expecting bills, this was in my mailbox (along with assorted junk mail and NO bills!):
Marsha said she planned to send this super cute little ornament with the blocks, but didn't have it done on time. I love it! Thank you!
Wondering what else good will happen this week. But if this is all, I'll take it without complaints!
And a little peek at what I've been working on between studying for a parasitology review/exam and household chores:
So it's sideways. And if I flip it, it looks wonky because it was taken sideways. That gingham is from Mary, but the rest is from my stash. I cheated and bought some yellow buttons for flower centers - I'm trying to make these from just my stash, but I thought buttons would be so cute.
I'm planning on a few random leaves, too, but those circles are giving me headaches. Gingham stretches and ravels something fierce and I didn't leave enough of a seam allowance to gather them easily...live and learn!
I hope you're all accomplishing more than I am. This Friday is my review/test (not sure exactly what to call it) and then my evenings will be my own again...once I cook dinner...
