Mail Call

I have had some pretty things in the mail this last week. My doll swap on is coming to a close. Yeah! All the quilts have been delivered but one person is away. She will have a surprise when she gets home.

I received a pretty quilt from Kat in TN. She asked for my name because this is her last swap for awhile. Her hubby has some health problems so she is taking a break to take care of his needs. I am glad she made me one. I have always wanted one from her. She made it completely by hand and did a beautiful job. Makes me want to try to hand quilt again. The flowers are puffy. Thanks Kat!

Then a few days after I got Kat's quilt I got another surprise. Wanda is in my swap too and she wanted to make me a quilt just because she likes me. I have wanted one of hers too. I bounce problems and ideas off of Wanda. She lets me vent and gives me some great ideas. She made a pretty quilt also. I liked her machine quilting. It really went good with the fall theme.

Then a couple days later I went to the mailbox and there was another package in the box. I couldn't figure out what it was. Needless to say I was very excited because it was another doll quilt. It wasn't due till the end of Jan. but Robin at sewcrazygrandma wanted to get it out early. It has a fall theme. It is very pretty too. I love quilts that make a chain. It is one that I have never made though. One of these days. It is on my to do list. I loved the appliqued leaves.
I have been very blessed the last couple weeks quilt wise that is.

I never posted that I wrecked my car. Coming home from church a lady pulled out in front of me. She is lucky my reflexes are still decent. I pulled to the left just enough that I hit her between her front door and the front fender. It could have been alot worse. No one was hurt. I had some bad bruises and I am sure she did. DH didn't have any complaints and it hit on his side. Mine came mainly from slamming the brakes and the seat belt.

My car had $6,000 damage and will probably take 3 or 4 weeks. It wouldn't be so bad except my loaner car is a piece of %%$ foreign car. It would have been nice to have a fun car to drive while they fixed mine. I won't drive it unless I have to. I use DH's Jeep. And I can't take my dog in the loaner either. But no one was hurt so I can not complain too much.

Margaret aka Supermom is starting her LA business. She had a special and wanted quilts to LA. I sent her one to do. She still might be wanting some more. I know she will do a good job quilting it. I wish I had more done to send her. Of coarse if I would quit making doll quilts I might get some finished!
I will let you know when I get it back.

I found a nice website. It is a place I would like to visit on one of our trips down south. And she is also having a nice giveaway. But I added her site to my blog list. Take a look.

Thanks Melisa from Sweet Home Quilt Company Blog for the chance to win!
