Good mail is easy to find!

I have had some great mail in the past few days.



Pincushion won from Calico Daisy. The stitching is exquisite.



Fat Quarters won from Krista. I love the ones she sent me and some of them are in colour palettes I have not used. It is going to be so fun to create with them.



 

  

 


My potholders from Rosebud Johnnies/Jessica. They are beautiful and she sent me wonderful things with them. I am scared to use them. I love the smiley face spoon. My daughter has decided it is hers for when she cooks.



Here is something that I hope will be good mail for someone; my submission to the potholder pass swap that I sent out last week.

 

I stayed up late last night to watch the Olympic dance skating, and it was incredible to watch. I am so proud that Virtue/Moir won the gold for Canada! All the athletes are amazing and it is fantastic to see the dedication and hard work pay off. I don't have to watch every 4 years though to see incredible talent. I see it on all of your blogs each day and I am amazed at what you do. You are all an inspiration!

Gorgeous haul!!

As for the O's - I think I may have cried a little with every medal.... Especially Joannie. And I haven't watched figure-skating since Elvis retired...

Your pot holders are adorable. What do you put inside of them as far as batting goes? My great aunt used to make them and lined them with denim from old jeans. Thanks! Jenn
