Time for what you ask , well my granddaughters and my daughter in law are coming for a visit in just a couple of days , to say I am excited is an understatement , can't wait to give them a big hug . That is the really sad part about living so far from your grandchildren it is too long between visits but we are grateful for those we do get .
Time is also getting close for the Think Christmas blog hop hosted by Lesley of the Cuddle Quilter and Madamme Samm our wonderful Blog host and cheerleader . I will be Thinking Christmas on the August 1st so be sure to stop by there just may be a little giveaway for you .Want another little sneak peak ?
I went to the Farmers Market this morning and bought a few fresh veggies and eggs and on my way back to the car spotted a really wonderful friend of mine who I have not seen in close to a year so just had to go over and visit with her. Chris had a bag in the car for me , she said it has been in there for quite a while hoping we would bump into each other . Inside the bag was a book and a quilt top she had purchased for me. I will take a photo of the quilt top later to share with you . It is an applique quilt with some of the work done but the person who had started this had obviously taken on a much more difficult task than they realized so gave up the ghost so to speak and now the task is before me. I think it will become a next winters project , perfect for sitting in the evening and stitching on and give me lots of opportunity to practice hand applique . Thanks so much Chris you are the best. Ok I decided to take those photos now while I think of it so here is the quilt top showing just some of the work that has been done and you will get to see the colors being used , I think all of the pieces are in the bag ,hope so .
I might as well show you the book Chris so kindly gave me as well .
