The mailman has been here

I'm so blessed!  Saturday or was it any event...... I got some great mail!  First I received this awesome stuff that my friend Annie made herself with her computer and printer!  It will have to be something really special for me to cut into this stuff.  I LOVE it!

Look what Annie made me!

Thank you so much, my friend!  If you have nothing to do, you can print me off some more with that gorgeous penmanship,  lol  I have a Birthday coming up in case you didn't remember!  lol

Then, I got my quilt from the Little Quilt - Sew, Vote, Swap group.  I got the one that Cindy Sharp made and it is so gorgeous......although bigger than I expected at 24 x28 inches.

I also received a package in error that should have been sent somewhere else, but that's another story in itself and I won't go there!  It was funny though and really threw me for a loop for awhile.  Good thing I had the senders e-mail address from a different situation.  Crazy!  I will say that the package is off now on it's way to the proper owner and hopefully things will turn out okay!

Then, I again joined the Scrappy Mug Rug swap (my 2nd favorite swap).  I have a partner who has very specialized tastes so this might be a challenge.  The theme is spring and while I would normally make something with white (my signature, or so I've been told), I thought I'd make something for her/his tastes for the first one:

Spring Mug Rug

If you want to read about the challenge I had with this one, click on the picture and go to the Flickr site and read what I wrote under the photo.  I will make more mug rugs for this swap.  I rarely make one of anything for swaps, (as you all know by now.  lol) I love making little stuff!!

So, other than my clean, very short cut Toby, I have nothing else to show you today.  Toby is blowing his puppy coat which results in matting something terrible so I thought a shorter coat might be wise for awhile.  Actually, he is looking more and more like a Bichon instead of the Havanese he really is.  Think that's because I was "in" Bichon Frises for 30 years and only know how to groom that breed??  Duh?

Toby loves naps on the bed!

Have a good week, my friends!  Until later.................

That's a pretty quilt you received, and the mug rug is very cute! And I think that is the most adorable little puppy ever! SWEET!

Maybe white is your signature at the suggestion of Toby! He is gorgeous!! I love those printed sheets, can't wait to see what you come up with!!

Annie said...

You are so welcome! Birthday?!?!?!
Of course I remembered, but you aren't getting fabric sheets...not in time anyway.

You, my dear, have a variety of signature things: White, Buttons, Bright and Colorful, need I go on...

I wouldn't know one dog from the other so I'm good with the cut!
