150 - wow

Who knew my tiny little blog would grow to 150 posts long. Wow, I'm so amazed.

This "Quilter" sign was a mother's day gift from my sister this year. It's so pretty, I keep it right up on my desk where I can see it all the time.

Ok, so soooo many things going on. Tonight I had some coffee with my new friend Susan - Hi Susan! and we did a bit of quilting, and she showed me her amazingly beautiful Sunbonnet Sue blocks. She's a super-perfectionist quilter. It's such a pleasure to meet somebody like her who is so passionate about quilting and such a natural at it. Good quilty vibes! Thanks for spending some time with me, my friend.

In other news, my only created yesterday Dear Hannah group already has a new member! Wow again, how cool is that. Welcome Betsy! You rock for joining in on all the fun.

Also, yesterday, I ran out and bought a huge bunch of colored pencils. I want to make something like this project, over at Mama Urchin's blog. My son would go so nuts for a pencil set like this and with all the kid birthdays we go to...what better gifts could you possible make.

I do like the pencil holders for gifts. They'd be great for fine-line markers, Sharpie markers, crayons for little ones... endless list. Now my mind is spinning... what shall I make? Although I just cut out a purse this afternoon, I feel like a nap with the good book I'm reading.
