Some designing and some parcels in and out.


Well our Internet is now running at full speed again. During my forced stay away from blogging I have been doing a bit of designing. This all came about because last week I walked into my local patchwork store planning to get some freezer paper. Did I remember to get the freezer paper. No. I was saying to myself I must remember it but I came across this lovely blue bird material and bought just half a metre of it. Plus a few other things!!! Can you guess what the two words mean???? I have made it into a table runner and started the hand quilting on it this evening. I love hand quilting and with Winter upon us it is a great time to take up quilting in the evening in front of the fire.
Now you may be wondering why I needed the freezer paper. Last week I received a lovely parcel from Vicki. I was lucky enough to win a prize in her recent giveaway. I won a purse made by Vicki. She put in a few extras including some of her famous hexagons. Now in use on our table. I will have to get that freezer paper so I can make Vicki's Tulips in Bloom pattern. Thank you so much Vicki.
Early on in the month I posted a surprise parcel to Bobbie Lynn and it has arrived.
Thank you so much for our friendship Bobbie Lynn. I can't believe it is nearly Friday,the week has gone just too fast.
Happy Days to everyone.

Hello Bev,
Neat print and birds are all the craze right now. Very cool color. Funny, see what happens when our eyes catches something pretty. Hope you get your paper soon and have fun with your new quilting items there.
Thanks again Bev.

Yes, all most the weekend and we hope that Saturday we will be driving up to Northern California to see the puppies. : )

How exciting it is to do some designing...your little bird is so sweet. Does the writing say 'Blue Bird'?

Looks like a great week for mail at your house - love your winnings! I have done that same thing in getting distracted from the very thing I went out to buy.

Love the blue bird print. I immediately recognized 'vrede' - 'peace' in Dutch. Wow.
Congratulations with you great win!
Have a lovely weekend!

Lovely material Bev. And as a Dutchy I know of course the word: vrede. I saw the Simone already translated it for you.
Glad you are totally back in cyberworld!
