Every Day Is A Better Day

Today was even better than yesterday! 
I was able to go the whole day without any pain medicine! 
I was kind of tired and needed to nap but no pain meds were necessary!!
Woo Hoo!!
I even had a visitor today.
My friend Pauline came over to see me and brought me some patterns I had ordered from Crazy Quilt Girl.
I will take some photos tomorrow to show you. 
Cori is going to be carrying some Australian designer patterns so be sure to stop over to her shop and check them out over the next few days.
She may not have them listed yet, as she has been crazy busy, but soon.

I also got the cutest get well card in the mail today too.
Thanks Dianne!! 
That kitty looks just like Captain Jack!
It is so nice to know that my friends are wishing me well!!

If that wasn't enough, I received my order from Hawthorne Threads today too.
OHHHH so cute!!

Have you seen Backyard Baby?
If you have not, you are in for a treat.
I fell in love with the forest but the bug jars are a close second. 
I think I will be buying more of this line.
Not only is it beautiful but some of the softest fabric I have ever felt!


Backyard baby

I have come to the conclusion that I need all the Lizzy House pearl bracelets in all the colors.
Sounds easy enough, right? Well it isn't.
So far every tie I find it they are out of stock.
I did manage to find some of the light orange and then added a little bit of Out Foxed.
LOVE all of it!

Lizzy House Fabrics

Anyone else like these lines? Or have tips where I might find good deals on them?
I got these at Hawthorne Threads. I am a big fan of theirs. 
Fabric.com carries them too but they are out of stock right now.

I know I am healing when I am finding it difficult to sit still and "relax". 
ACK how I hate that word.
I don't know how to do that very well. 
So this afternoon when it was just me and the cats I hauled out DD1's Halloween Tumbler quilt and hand stitched the binding down on that quilt!
It's all finished!!
I just need to stamp a label on it and it is ready to wash and hand over!!

That's my kind of relaxing! Hope you are all doing fun stuff.
My stamina is not back to normal yet so forgive me if I haven't commented on your blogs of late.
I will get there.

Glad you are convalescing well. I love that bugs in a bottle fabric. I looked up the pearl bracelets and found some on Etsy.

I hate it when I see something and it is not available any more. At least now with so many fabric shops online it is possible to see all the new designs as they come out.

Oh I'm *so* glad today was a better day!! And look at you ... no pain meds! WOW! I'm glad you've got some fun stuff to occupy you. That Backyard Baby, in particular, is quite darling. My husband's favorite bird is the flicker, so that pattern caught my eye immediately! :)

Each day will get better, just catch your rest! I love that bug jar fabric - but have resigned to support my LQS - we need to support our local businesses right now.

Hope you are up to quilting real soon hon:)

That Backyard Baby is real sweet!

Glad to hear your recovery is going so well... hunting down fabrics online is a great way to distract yourself during your convalescence!

Take care and happy hunting!

Glad to hear that you are recoverey nicely. I don't think you had the same surgery as me because I can't go the whole day without something. Remember you need to cough and for me to do that I need help. I love that pearl bracelet fabric but I'm being good and I won't even look for it on the net.
