Romika's Present!!

Look what arrived at my door today! It is a Package from my friend Romika. (Robyn)........................Way over there-----------> in Australia!! The package is HUGE! At first I was like: "Is this really for me?" sure enough my name is on the box.
Upon opening it up I was greeted with the usual bubble wrap. THEN after removing that I came across Fabric! (Every quilters dream!) It was "Bush fruit dreaming design " by: Doris Nampitjinpa. You gotta love the selvages on them!

Next I grabbed the Dark Chocolate covered strawberry licorice. O my GOSH!! is that stuff good! I ate 3/4 the bag before I could dig out anything else! (Then I noticed it is 117 calories per servings, with 7 servings in the whole bag....You do the math. I don't want to...LOL)
Then in the cutest little box tied with ribbon was this owl mug. How special! I had sent her an owl pin cushion and now I have the gorgeous mug to remind me of her every morning!

Then when I thought it couldn't get better than this I see a bird pin cushion! How adorable!! Bird soap, a dragonfly applique and see that frog?? I hear from other bloggers that they are super delish! I can't wait to try it!
Maybe I will split it, maybe not.
I wonder how you know Romika that I like birds, dragonflies, frogs and owls?? AND my favorite candy is licorice? It is like having: Christmas, my Birthday and Anniversary all rolled in! Thank-you from the bottom of my heart!

Then last but not least, the book worm of the family grabbed this. I might have to wait until he is done reading it before I get a chance to peek at it! Dan sends his many THANKS FOR SENDING THE BOOK.

I love everything! You are so special and I am very thankful and BLESSED to have you as a friend. God Bless you!~!



Look Who dropped in for a visit today!! It's our grandpuppy!!
His dad had to work on his boat.


Mother's Day

WOW!! What a memorable Mother's Day!

The day before my hubby gave me $$ to go to the quilt store & buy fabric.

Then First thing on Mother's Day my youngest was standing at the bottom of the stairs when I first came down in the morning, holding a candle & card. "Happy Mothers Day!" He proclaimed. HE remembered!! (maybe it was the daily reminders I had given?) So on I go.........

It was during church the ladies got carnations, to remind them they are beautiful!

AFTER church the men had dinner all ready. The foyer was decorated in pink with flowers every where. Little mini "menus" were on each table. Then they had waiters!! A decision of: Stuffed pork loin, Talapia, Barbecue chicken, couscous (sp), rice & vegies, Grilled vegies, Salad, Ice cream & cake was hard to make. I wanted dessert first but my waiter said that was improper?? G!

After a nice dinner & NO CLEAN UP we headed home. Son #3 had a card sitting on the table (he had to work) He gave me a preloaded visa card. How cool! I get to go to the fabric store again and not feel guilty about spending big bucks....LOL. His girlfriend text'd me wishing me a Happy Mothers Day.

Son #2 presented his gift. A nail kit with money attached and a card. The card read like this: Happy mothers day!!!! (pink one in picture) Open it up: "Thanks mom for everything......Including this paper" Love Matt....LOL He used my scrap booking paper. Gotta give him extra credit for that one. But this mama doesn't keep count.

Then later on my Son#1 & daughter~in~law came over they brought a dozen roses and a necklace hand made.

We topped the evening off with a trip to Mickey's (everyone's favorite ice cream place).

It was such a blessing to have my kids around me on this special day!! My sister~in~law was up for a visit. I thank God.



Sunday Best

Today I was blessed with not one, not two but THREE!! quilting books!! Thank-you Randa!~! I really appreciated them!
This weekend we had a mini vacation. On the spur of the moment we threw everything in our fifth wheel and took off. We went to Zeeland, Michigan. I found a really cool christian resale shop. It was quite refreshing. I bought two antique tea cups with matching saucers. I will post pictures of my week #3 hexagons tomorrow. I plan on doing them tonight.
