Checking In

Mother's Day was wonderful. Mike, Simone and JJ gifted me with a lovely bonsai tree and then took us out to dinner. A special delivery brought a beautiful bouquet in shades of yellow from Kari, Craig, Abby and Ian. We, also, spent some time visiting with my mom and got in a card game at home later that evening. I was a happy mom.

We had Bee at my house on Monday and swapped our third set of four inch blocks. Aren't they the cutest! You can click the links to see the first and second sets again if you missed them. Half-way through the year already and the count is at 36 blocks.

Monday was also the day the staff of The Quilted Cottage treated us with a day of sewing and lunch for helping at the Shop Hop. We each received a lovely wine glass filled with Starburst candies and a star charm. (The Shop Hop theme was 'Reach For The Stars') I left shortly after lunch to get home before the Bee ladies arrived.

Then there was a Priority Package from Little Quilts in the mail. It contained the cute fabric I had recently won on their blog giveaway. The week has been good so far.

You have had a good week! Love that bonsai; it looks like a camellia with a nifty trunk? Those tiny quilt blocks are really pretty.

You are a busy lady! I am glad your Mother's day was good.
