I Am Soooooo Lucky!

I am so lucky to have all my blog friends!  Last Saturday I went to a meeting at the local quilt store and sat next to Marie, who had followed along on the quilt along.  I hadn't met her other than through her emails as Toad, so it was a nice surprise to finally meet in person.

Of course a lot of my quilty friends were there and it was great to catch up with them!  Through quilting I have met a lot of wonderful people, and for that, I am thankful every day.

However, today I am more thankful than usual.  I went out to the Dentist, which is never fun, and came home to a present at two of my three doors.  Wow.

The present at the front door was from Donna.  A lot of Nova Scotia loving.  The grape jelly was made from her own grapes, and the sea shells collected from her beach.  Blueberry syrup and Lavender soap and lip balm, all made in Nova Scotia.  And the placemat, oh my goodness!  Love it.

Donna took one of the blocks from the Quilt Along and made me this stunning work of art. The quilting on it is fabulous.  Thank you so much Donna!!!!!!

And now for the back door.

Hanging from the back door was a gift bag with treasures.  A little (LOT) of Crossroads Denim and a Starbucks card.  I am one very lucky quilter!!!!  A special thanks to a special friend.

It's hard to get back to reality after having been so spoilt.  I think I'll sit back and sip on my Starbucks Tea a little before I cut into the Denim.  I have a plan and will show you what I make when it is done.  Hope you are having a great day wherever you may be!
