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.

Sorry about your accident, Bonnie, but I'm sure glad you came away with only bruises.
The quilts that you received are really nice. I'm sure they helped ease the pain of your accident and brightened your day!
I missed Margaret's offer and would love to have her quilt one of mine someday.
Take care!

Beautiful little Doll Quilts Bonnie. Looking forward to the next one.


Lovely quilts. I really love the oriental one!

So sorry to hear of your accident, but getting by without any really serious injuries is a miracle!

What a beautiful quilt!
I am sorry about your accident. I pray your car comes back to you soon, all fixed up and pretty.
