Some stash, some mail, and a finish....

Greetings dear friends and blogging buddies!~ I am so glad you all stopped by today , I will try not to bore you! Been puttering around trying to get some things done. So many things, so little time. You all know how that goes right? Things have calmed down for us a little . We did spend Saturday attending a funeral for my husband's aunt. I know a few of you knew what was going on with her and she passed away on June 1st, our anniversary. She was a very sweet lady and will be truly missed.
Well.... she's at it again!! If you guessed "she" is Shirley, you'd be right! I received a lovely package in the mail with the remaining Hawk Run Hollow patterns and a couple of Little House Needleworks patterns! One of which, is a new one that I was dying to have, Mrs. O'Leary's Dairy Farm. So guess what? Well, I started it of course!! Thanks again so much Shirley for your kindness and generousity and for just being you!!

Faye and I have done a borrowing swap and she sent the pattern back to me that she borrowed. Look what she sent. Counting pins that she made herself!! They are lovely and I am disgusted that I can't get a better shot! I know a few of you have received these and are just tickled pink like me!! I'm sorry that I haven't emailed you yet to let you know they arrived, I do love them and have already put them to use!

I got the piecing pretty much done for 9-Patch Charm Walk. I just need to add a border when I can get the fabric. I had so much fun piecing this and cutting went very very quickly!

Well, I just had enough time to pop my head in here real quick to get some pictures posted .Also to let you know a little bit about what's going on with me. What's going on in your world? Thanks so so much for stopping by and spending part of your day with me. I know your time is valuable and I appreciate it so much that you spend a snippet of your time with me. Thank you from the bottom of my heart! I hope you all have a blessed day!

'till next time,

don't be a stranger,

  5. Those charts make me drool!

    Sorry about your family's loss.

  6. Beautiful! I love it all; and thanks for showing the counting pins. I've been seeing people getting them, but didn't realize they were the linked ones for counting. I want to try using some of those sometime; I wonder if they'd work well for me! :D

  7. I'm sorry to hear about your husband's aunt Sharlotte! Thought and prayers to all of you.

    And I didn't know that Faye made those pins hereself. They're really great, aren't they? And love, love the stash too. You'll have enough to keep you busy for a while and love the quilt too - very pretty colors.

  8. I've picked up a couple of the Hawk Run charts and have 1 or 2 more to get. Faye's pins are wonderful. Your quilt looks fantastic! You should be very proud of it.

    I'm sorry to hear of your aunts passing.
