Sorry for the Blurry pic but you can see a lot of people waiting in Post office, and this isn't usually this short. It is usually out the door! I must admit everytime I send off a package, I don't miss the lines. Our post office is SO EFFICIENT!!!! It is something I will probably never take for granted.
But the way that they get around may be the thing that made me smile the most. I wish I had a dollar every time I saw a truckload overflowing with passengers....I think I could bail out Wallstreet!I hope you all have a great couple of days until I am back in Mississippi.

get a photo of the recipient of the houndstooth I made for a local college fellow. He wanted a cozy lap quilt for his girl at the game. She loves brown and gold. And I am working on another UFO, which was started before the Wee one was born, these very bright blocks, have now been pieced together, but have to add borders to the top,as it is just under a double. Hope to have it finished over the weekend. I am planning on practicing on my DD in laws quilt...to get straight line practice, then will attempt the customer quilt. So may have a few photos to share after the weekend. If all things go well. My ship DID NOT come in this week, BUT I have been assured that it is LOADED on the truck to arrive late next week! Now I am leaving next weekend to go see the lovely little Princess, then on to see the Wee one, and will be gone until election day...so no unpacking if if arrives too late. It really may be Christmas before I get to open the boxes! AT this rate!!! Hope you all are having a lovely weekend. Its going to be a good one for me.

When will my ship come in???? and more UFO's for Finn's challenge.....and the real haunted house!!!!
Well have just finished binding the string quilt...with the dark, quick binding...and bound and finished a little old Christmas panel.... did some very simple swirls on it. But I made Wonky letters for my South African Memory quilt....made from blocks my friends made for me before I left SA. They incorporated some of my favorite things...and memories into each block. What a pleasure to see it loaded on my machine.... and have begun dwirling.... or colleenishing the quilt. About half way through now. I am so excited...as still have some of the bright sashing fabric to use for the binding. Nothing from SA yet...but now have been told it will be coming next week.Will my ship ever really come in???? It will be fun to see when that actually happens.
The South Africa quilt....has a picture of the Mountain that was just behind our town, and animals from the Kruger Park, My favorite radio station, Algoa FM, A cricket player....... a Xhosa hut, my books for Africa program, our sewing group.... Can't wait to have it all done..... and show it off. I think it will look pretty grand...now have to sort where to hang it. As my buddies added some beading... and dimensional things...so really can't be used on a bed...or laid on. The South AFrican quilt, has been fun.... and I had never used Tonya's methods to try to do any kind of lettering before. I had so much fun, not quite as Wonky as I would have liked, but I really enjoyed trying to do these. Its going to be quiet week here, I must baste a quilt for a hand quilting friend.... and finish off Memories SA, then try to work on my Halloween stash buster table topper. I am going to use Libby's idea..of putting some harvest colors on back...so it can do double duty. Can't wait to scratch through the strip drawers to see what I have out there. And finally a picture of the real haunted house...... My mom's house....taken last year.... just before Thanksgiving! I warned you ..... it really is falling to bits. Can't find the pics of the closeups.... but still looking. Have a great weekend...... I so am going to!!!!
