Good morning, friends!
Happy Thursday! Hope you're having a great week! I'm joining in with my friends at Not Afraid of Color for our weekly party to celebrate whatever has made the week a good one for each of us.
Sometimes I just like the small things - like *finally* finding the right box to send this quilt to my nephew and his family in Florida.
I finished this quilt way back in November, but never sent it until just this week. I sure hope they like it!
I really liked this movie! On the recommendation of some friends, we borrowed the DVD from the library.
It is a documentary of Mr. Rogers' life, with lots of behind the scenes info about his career and show. There was so much I didn't know about Mr. Rogers, but I do remember the show so well from watching it with my kids when they were little in the 1980s.
I am liking this book. It was available from the library, so I checked it out recently.
There is a quilt along going on, involving the quilts from this book, sponsored by Sujata Shah of the blog, The Root Connection. I'm not quilting along, but I'm interested to see what people make, so I'm "following along," you might say!
Linda, of Koka Quilts, is making a quilt inspired by this one -
made sometime between 1930 - 1950.
You can see Linda's Flying Geese quilt HERE. I really like her version! Lots of quilt examples from this QAL are also being posted at #UandUQal on Instagram. These are really interesting quilts - kind of primitive and improvisational. If I didn't have plenty of other things that I'm already working on, I would think about joining in!
And the surprise... came from our friend, Sally, at Crafts, Cavies, and Cooking! A few weeks ago, Sally let me know that I won the giveaway she was having for her blog anniversary. Lucky me! The package arrived at the end of the day Wednesday (yesterday when you're reading this post)! Sally sent some of her delicious goodies - Ginger Nut Clusters, and two fun cards - a fabric card and some adorable guinea pigs.
Oh my goodness, those Ginger Nut Clusters are soooo good!
Thank you, Sally!
