Variety Post

Earlier in the week I got to know my "magical voice" friend on the phone. We could have easily chatted all day. Her quilt top was on my longarm this week.

My friend Dana who I posted about in previous post sent a wonderful package. I received not only her tops to be quilted but a "sampling" of Dana's wool and 30's scraps she gave me. Thank you so much Dana! I think I may have enough for the 30's quilt I have in mind and now no excuses for not having wool variety!

Pathetic. I'm just pathetic. Here is what I've worked on and it still isn't finished. Life just got real busy with all else. I received some emails asking where I was....much appreciated. The week got away and now Memorial Day weekend. Enjoy yours!

"Magic Voice" Friend?
The quilt on your longarm looks wonderful. Dana must be a very special friend! You're going to be one busy gal, with all the tops to be quilted.
Mary you are most definitely not pathetic! Stuff happens! Life has a way of wisking one away sometimes! You shouldn't be so hard on yourself. ( Now if I can just use my own advice.... ) ;>)
The basket quilt is very cute! A most definite primitive look! Have a great Memorial weekend. Enjoy being with your family. They grow-up too fast!

I'm bringing my coffee and some snacks this morning to hang out in my hidey hole at the Hollow. I hope it's not too much trouble for you. I'll be quiet, I promise. I think I just need to hear that magical voice yet again. Plus, well, I want to check out that rockin' stash enhancement you received. Right on!

Do you know there are no less than THREE Karen's (before me) that have posted on your blog? It's a world of Karen's. How neat is that? I'm diggin' it!

Off to pack up my provisions, *karendianne.

We've been moving our son into his new apartment (he's getting married next month) and my life has gotten away from me too!! I honestly wish sometimes there were about 48 hours in a day, LOL! Have a nice holiday weekend! Cindy
