My late post today is due to the fact that my computer monitor bit the dust this weekend. I have my trusty little Netbook, but looking at the screen for any amount of time is a definite eye strain, so I had to wait until this afternoon so I could post from my work computer!
I realized this morning that today marks my first year of blogging! I wanted to send a heartfelt thanks to everyone who has stayed with me this first year. This experience is unlike anything I had imagined. I've not only been inspired beyond belief from all the gifted quilters in blogland, but I've also made some true and lasting friendships! Thank you - everyone!
I've been testing bags again. This time for Linda of All Stitched Up. Her latest creation is the Kakadu bag, which is named after one of Australia's national parks. I decided to go out of the box on my fabric selection this time! My friend Carol whose embroidered jeans I showed you a while back helped me with the selection. I used Andalucia by Patty Young for Michael Miller fabrics.
Remember the bag, Sugar Baby, below that I tested for Stephanie? It's a very small bag that I thought would be perfect for my next door neighbor's granddaugther, Malia, who is really into purses!
In Saturday's mail was a cute little Hello Kitty letter. I didn't recognize who it was from until I opened the envelope. It was the most adorable thank-you card from Malia!
She even drew a picture for me on the back!
I spent some time working on my hourglass blocks this weekend. Hopefully by next weekend I'll be able to show you some good progress on the quilt!
