I was already feeling pretty good about today and the fact that I got all the blocks done for the Pips in a Basket quilt. I laid them out on the living room floor this morning and played musical squares for a while.
Then I got the mail, and there was a squishy! Gorgeous hand-dyed fabrics, giveaway winnings from Vicki at Dotty Jane Designs, along with a special mini-quilt or candle mat!
Can a Monday get any better? I think not!
Just look at that tiny pebble quilting, so pretty. Thanks so much, Vicki! I just love it! The wheels are already turning on how best to showcase those lovely fabrics.
It had been a while since I'd been thrifting, but I had a a 25% off coupon from Goodwill burning a hole in my pocket and due to expire in a few days. So we stopped there yesterday and I found this pretty little black and white damask print plate. My coupon saved me all of 75 cents on it, ha.
Dad's tomatoes are becoming ripe. I picked a bunch yesterday and made fresh tomato chili last night with about eight of them. Just rinse, core, and give them a spin in the food processor. No need to peel at all.
He grew several varieties this year. This particular kind are on the small side and have interesting little...um...points.
I entertained my inner 12-year-old and gave them some "embellishments" in Picnik (online photo editing). What do you think?
I just gotta be me...
