Gratitude Post #2

A couple of weeks ago, or so, I posted a comment on Vicky’s blog to be eligible for a giveaway she was having.  She gave away a tower of 40 (FORTY!!!) fat quarters, all coordinated, in lovely Moda fabric.  And I WON!!!  I thought I would photograph the fabric next to this cool pelican sister-in-law Grace sent to us a while back.  (We love the pelicans at the Texas Gulf, and doesn’t your heart ache when you see the harm done to all the Gulf Coast wildlife by the oil?  Anyway, this pelican is safe and sound!)

The fabric arrived last week, but I’ve been a little slow (and a lot busy) and haven’t taken the time to take a photo and properly thank Vicky.  So thank you very much, Vicky!  This was such a beautiful and generous gift, and it will make a very special quilt some day.  (I just bought the book/CD “The Farmer’s Wife Sampler Quilt“, and I think Vicky’s fabrics would be great in that quilt.

And I’m also grateful for all my blog readers out there.  I’ve never met most of you, but there are a lot of you that I feel like I do really know.  I appreciate every single one of you, but especially Bert in Alabama and Eileen in Illinois.  If I haven’t blogged for a while, I’m likely to get an e-mail from one of them saying, “Are you okay?”  It’s kind of nice to be missed! 

Hope you’re having a wonderful summer day.

  1. I read you got THE FARMER’S WIFE SAMPLER QUILT BOOK. I got to go to a program put on by her. She only lives about 12 miles from me. the book is wonderful!! and very worth the cost. She is very nice and gives a great program on old Farmer’s Wife magazines(from long long ago) When I got to the table she had just sold her last book, but she met me later on and delivered the books to me.
