I must show you the happy, happy, VERY happy mail I received the other day!!!!
From Gene Black -
This happy little embroidered block, that I happened to notice in one of his posts, and admired- ended up in my mailbox!!! Woohoo- thank you, Gene!!!!
He created it from a free download with his Brother(?) machine.After much thought, I think I am just going to frame it.
LOVE, LOVE, LOVE IT!!!
And, it is perfect to show off on Tea on Tuesday!!
This morning's tea, at the crack of early, yet again, is one my friend Teresa sent me from her trip to New Zealand.
NZ Breakfast tea (made by Twinings) , with some local VA wildflower honey.
Here is the little group of teas that "T" mailed me - the Black Adder is licorice, and boy, you can almost smell it from across the room!!!!
I am working up my courage to try the hawthorn tea! We have some hawthorn trees on the property, and I attempted to dry some berries this past season, none too successfully. I am told hawthorn is good for the heart- I will test taste some and report back one of these Tuesdays!!!
Last night, I attended a fabric trunk show at J&B's Country Store/Ben Franklin, in Broadway, Va. Very interesting, and some really cool fabric. Of course, I ordered some.........!!!
Here are some of the quilt tops created from some of his fabric lines:
Some of the samples - I think I ordered the lime green with black swirls below.
OOPS! My friend Bobbie timed walking in front of me just right, I see!!! LOL
**(I had some of my fliers for the upcoming Mountain Meadows Quilt Retreat (August 25, 2012 with Pat Sloan!) printed - so did a little networking and passed them out at the trunk show!!
As soon as the website is up and working, I will let everyone know - so you can make your reservation- class max is 25 students! And, you know, you don't want to miss out on becoming an official "Sloanie"!)
Please join us every Tuesday for tea- drop by Patty and Kim's blogs, for a list of other tea fanciers!!!
