When I finally got home on
late Saturday night early Sunday morning.
I was exhausted by the time I got to my car at the airport.
Then I had to spend 15 minutes thawing and scraping all the ice off the windows.
then drive home in the yucky cold rain.
I finally made it home and found my mailbox STUFFED with wet mail.
This was in the mail. luckily it had be sent in a plastic envelope, so nothing was wet.
Rapunzel! and Sushi! and Gnomes!
For those of you that are following, this makes 7 packages.
Seven wonderful bits of happiness.
I am so completely blown away by all of the caring, kind people out there.
I know I'm supposed to use all of them for me, but I feel like I need to give back in some way, so I want to give away a few things.
More than likely I'll be using stuff from my stash and not these beautiful fabrics, I haven't had enough of a chance to pet them! Can't use them yet!
I did manage to finish The Boy's quilt. The top has been sitting in the closet for about a year. He wasn't too sure about the idea of spending the whole weekend away from home, so I told him that he could sleep with this and pretend I was giving him hugs to keep him warm.
May I present:
Holy Wonky Rails, Batman!
It finished at about 54"x60"
It's not perfect by any means, but done is better than perfect.
I pieced the back, making it a bit more subdued so he can flip it over when he's "too old" for Batman.
He doesn't care that it isn't perfect. Or that the quilting isn't even and smooth.
He loves it. and really, that's all that matters.
