Aren't Friends The BEST?

I am overwhelmed by the blogging friends that have all taken time to
send me some blues for my dad's quilt.
 I received more in the mail this week. 
This is a GREAT thing as I need to add some more variety to the mix. 
Also I received a package from Australia from Badskirt Amy
She just happened upon some Mendocino and I scored BIG with her help.
 Thanks Amy!

These blues also came along from Amy. 
Hey, so I just noticed the black spots on both of these pics.
 I will have to check and see if that is really on the fabrics when I get home! 
I suppose I can work around! haha

These are the other blue packages I have received, one from Brenda
(a fellow Michigan quilter)
Thanks, Brenda!

The other is from Jan Maree.

Spectacular!! Thanks Jan Maree.

I did manage to get a quilt bound this week but have not been able to get any photos, hopefully soon! DH came home last night and it was good to have him home. 
 I brought the dog with me to go and pick him up as he was going to be at his work
 so the dog was allowed.
 I think she almost had a heart attack when she saw him, it was hysterical!! 
She may be even more excited to see him than I was! LOL. 
The cats were not impressed.

Have a wonderful day!

I LOVE the first fish print. Adorable!

Glad you are getting lots of blues; the more the merrier! That is one color that is also lacking in my stash. Seems like we all have a tendency to 2 or 3 colors, and have lots of those, not so much of everything else.

The little fish are so cute! And I agree, blogging friends are the best! Have a happy day!

You are welcome and so glad to be able to help a little! That is the way of it here. The Bug always wants me to pick her up for a hello after work, but if the hubs is gone she will wait by the door for hours for him and I am afraid if he was gone more than a day she might waste away to nothing. The cat is that same with the hubs though, the man is well loved by all two and four footed.

Awesome stuff! I get annoyed when my dog (yes my dog) gets over the top excited to see my husband...like, who am I? :)

You are welcome - glad I had some that would work for you - happy stitching!
