I know I say this all the time, but it’s true. I have the best blog readers. Over the last month or so I’ve gotten several things in the mail….
From Ila, I got a dead blow hammer. When I met with her when she was in Iowa I talked about how I liked to free motion machine quilt because I could stand at the front of the machine and see my quilt. That way if I had a seam intersection that didn’t lay very flat, I could just run my stitching over that spot and get the excess fabric to lay down. That’s when Ila told me as she irons the quilt top she uses a dead blow hammer to just pound the spot down. The next thing I knew…Ila sent me a dead blow hammer.
I have to admit..the first time I used it I thought myself a little silly. Now, I love it! If you’re sewing lots of seams together, it’s an awesome tool to have.
In another package from Barbara in Edina, MN, I got a beautiful-beautiful crocheted piece. She had it for years but her taste changed and thought I might be able to use in in the new house. Isn’t it wonderful??
I can’t wait to find the perfect spot for it. I can’t imagine the work and time that went into it. I love it.
From Vic at Park Hill Farm I got a wonderful decorative paint book. It’s full of painting tips and ideas I hope to implement once my life frees up a bit.
I got this one a bit ago but it got in with Kelli’s things. Now it’s back to me and I’ve but it on my nightstand. It’s about the only reading time I get anymore.
Thank you-thank you to all of you. I so appreciate your thinking of me. You always seem to know what goodies will make me happy.
See what I mean about my blog readers…they are the best. I so appreciate all the goodies you all have sent.
