I do have a big smile on my face having received these great tie dyed shirts from Vicki. Aren't they spectacular?
She included some handmade soap. I really have been wanting some of that. And if all that wasn't enough, she even made the wrappers. What a talented lady.
To complete the week I found out that I had won a blog giveaway. Do you have any idea how many of those I have entered in the past year? The blog is Piece O Cake Designs, I know you've seen their adorable patterns. Scroll down a bit and you can see the beautiful appliqued block that's coming my way.

As soon as I got those shirts I cut them up and backed them with fusible tricot, along with 3 of grandpa's shirts, and that's as far as I got. They have been sitting there on the "design bed" ever since. Nicky has picked out some fishy fabric he wanted included. He has nagged me several times when I'm ever going to work on his quilt?
As previously reported, I have been making blocks for the Princess Jellybean quilt. I am afraid if Nicky sees Alli's quilt being worked on and not his, well, he will not be too happy. So, I have finally started putting something together. This is only a start. It needs to be squared up a bit. I intend to put a border on it (with all those fishy fabrics) and I am going to applique fish in the open blue areas. Then I will have to find a longarmer to quilt it. There are so many wonderful quilters out there, I don't know who to choose. But I think it will be awhile before I have to make that decision.

Dotti's card is gorgeous as usual. The letters are some sort of metal, copper I think. The colors are wonderful and her workmanship is great also.
I could probably make better post cards (and greeting cards) if I would just break down and buy some stuff. You know what I mean, stamps, inks, papers, do-dads and what-nots. Good grief, there is only so much one can cram into a 10x10 room.
