Priority Mail

Don't you just love to see a Priority Box in your mail? Judith drew my name for a giveaway on her blog and made the cutest little fabric box with a cat on the lid. I love containers of any kind, but especially ones that are made with someone's hands. Thank you so much, Judith!

I've been dealing with some bug here all week so I haven't accomplished much. It's really put a damper on my January plans. Thursday night I was feeling a bit better so I sewed a few of the Carolina Crossroads Mystery blocks together. Friday morning I woke up with no voice (which Jim is smiling about). I could understand it if I had been cheering at a big game, but I wasn't even talking. I'm hoping the bug is just working it's way out as I don't feel too ill otherwise.

I love how the blocks look together and hope to have a top by the time the week-end is over. Even though my voice isn't working properly, my foot is still able to work the pedal on my sewing machine. Bonnie posted that she plans on another mystery around April 1st. Maybe you'd like to join in for that one?

I am glad you like the box. I loved making it.
The colors on your quilt look great too. I like seeing all the different colors a lot.

Looking great Jeanne! Keep going!
Can't wait to see it finished!
There is a lot of laryngitis going around here. My son had it at the beginning of the week.

I see that you were able to move your foot, I hope that you are feeling better.

I think I like your marvellous color choices the best of any I have seen yet. Fantastic!
