Sweet Surprises

Chen over at Mushyhead's Sweatshop was so sweet and sent me a little treat. She had seen I LOVE owls and she had some extra owl fabric from a project she made so she sent it to me only asking that I make a quilt block using it and sent it back. I think I can handle that. I think I know what I want to do too! She also sent me a fat quarter of another owl fabric she thought I might like. She was right!

I also received from my daughter, my mother's day gift. Three year olds can't wait. Her dad took her shopping. I got a bag full of candy! Gummi snakes and sharks and some chocolate and pocky. I love pocky! Then I got some Christmas rings, a valentine's day frame and a huge lollipop. Plus, at day care she made me a plant out of hands and gave me her potted plant. She was so excited!

As a side note, Kat at Ripping Out Seams is hosting a virtual quilting bee. If you have never done it, it is a great experience. Everyone is assigned a month and during your month you send enough fabric to everyone to make a quilt block of your choosing and they send it back. Its fun because you are challenged to try new things and to be creative. Check it out!

I also saw a picture of one of the twins. Mary-Kate or Ashley, who knows. Anyway, I love this purse. I think I am going to figure out how to make one similar out of fabric since I can't afford the leather one she has. Isn't it cute!?
