Oh, my Kellan..playing with the new Tommy the Train pieces that Grammie Debi sent him. He loves these little trains. His t-shirt says, "It seemed like a good idea at the time." Mommy, Jessica, says now that he's getting around faster, he's able to have his favorite "no-no Kellan" treat.....the dog food!!! Yeck!
ELAINE's QUILT is coming along every day! I received our first swatch this Thursday from Margaret...who is from NY. I'll be posting the swatch when a few more come in. But, I want to say, Margaret, it's as if we went shopping together. The piece you sent is absolutely perfect for the quilt!! Thank you so much! :) *Note to Barbara: No, it's not too late to be included in Elaine's Quilt project. Please do send your piece!
NEW BLOGs (at least new to me!) I've had the most fun today looking at new blogs and seeing what's going on with stitchers I've never met or seen before. As quilting is in my mind these days, I found the most wonderful blog to share with you. Please go by and see Kim at http://bittybitsandpieces.blogspot.com/ . She has such awesome quilts and things, and she has great links. I love her personality, too.
Another new blog to me, and one I thoroughly enjoyed is: Vanessa's V and Co. which you'll find at: http://www.vanessachristenson.com/
Wendy Jo's http://wentostitch.blogspot.com/ was fun for me to see because Wendy Jo and I and several others are just beginning to start our "Emblem of Love" Quaker RR. You'll like seeing her, too, I think.
