Time to set my weekly goals.

  1. Quilt pink top
  2. Finish string blocks to a top
  3. Make a set of binding

Okay, those are all the goals I'm going to have this week. I have many other things to do so not a lot of sewing time. I even took the pillowcases off my goals for this week.  Pillowcases are easy--but I like to use a different sewing machine to make them, and I dread getting it out.  I think it's the lifting of it, it's very heavy. 

But I've had a GREAT mail week. First, I was in a book swap, and got two wonderful quilt books and a table mat. These came from Betty in Iowa--Thank you Betty!! I have never seen either book before, and I've already picked a quilt to make from one.  The other book is strictly historical information on quilts throughout history, and I love it.


And today I received another package, this one from Zana Nini's. Did she know what I needed? Yes, hotpads (I had just been throwing a bunch of old ones away!) and an apron with ANGELS on it.  And it has green binding. ;~) The apron has lots of pockets on it, something I can use when I quilt. Thank you Katie!!
I was just thinking, if I wear the apron when I quilt, will the angels help me from saying bad words when things aren't going well??  Or maybe they will just help me so things go right?  I like that idea!  I will take all the help offered!

I'm glad they arrived. I tried to take them to the post office myself, but then the van wouldn't start! I had to have DH take it to work and mail from there.

Maybe they're like kitchen witches and make everything turn out okay. Though it doesn't look like you have any problems in THAT department!
