I received a wonderful, and very thoughtful gift from my friend Annemiek (along with her friend Corrine) in the mail yesterday. Annemiek lives in the Netherlands and she and I have become very good friends even though we have not met...yet.
The mug says Learning Dutch while you're drinking.
And those were the words with pictures on the mug too.
She also sent the most adorable "cupcake" pin cushion. The "whipped cream" on the top is spectacular and the strawberry has stitched "seeds" in it.
So today I have been busy righting all the "stuff" that had been moved. I put some of it back, am selling some of it and have found yet MORE UFO's to work on as well, *sigh*. Of course no weekend is complete without starting something totally unrelated to finishing anything, right? It's OK right? Well I had bought this adorable monster fabric to make a rag quilt with and so it is all cut out and I am going to finish it this week. Really, come h--l or high water I am. I am going to make a huge push to get some of the other UFO's worked on over the next few weeks too. This may mean less time here though. We'll see. Oh yes, here is the monster fabric cut up and ready to stitch.
Now if you had monsters that were this cute wouldn't you want to play with them too??
Yesterday we went to LTW's farm and got some more farm fresh eggs and a TON of produce, thanks LTW!! You and Becky are the BEST!! DH, DD1 and I went to the tractor supply store then to the farm. We had a really nice visit too. I did skip my class on Sat for the farm visit, but I am trying to spend more time doing things with the family, so it was a trade off. I did weigh in and gained .6 this past week, but in reality, after the weekend I had actually put on 5 so I worked really, really hard all week and lost all but .6 of it. I'm OK with that! Birthday's are once a year so I guess it is ok. I am back on track and hoping for a good week this week.
Hope you all had a good weekend and that you managed to stay cool. It is so HOT and humid here!!
