Musings of a quilting enthusiast

It was a good day!

October21

Yesterday was a good day for me. Well, they are all good days, but this was a really good day.

I started the day out by making spaghetti sauce in my crock pot while pondering how to get that blasted woodpecker to stop pecking at the house. Rat-a-tat-tat, rat-a-tat-tat!! Maybe he was asking to be invited to dinner?

Then my web goddess came over to brainstorm some changes to my website. During the visit, we heard the UPS truck arriving. Murphy the Wonder Dog is my UPS alert system. Note that he has his own quilt at his look-out post!

Murphy on guard!

I received not one, but two packages!!! Yippee! My web goddess grabbed my camera and we headed outside.

The first package was from my son, Chris. He and his wife are expecting a baby in a month, but they are currently living overseas. Since holding a shower for them here was impossible, I arranged for a “Shower in a Box”.  We packed up some easy to ship items and send them over the ocean.
Chris and Susan were very surprised, delighted, overwhelmed, etc. Mission accomplished! Chris, being the thoughtful son that he is, sent me a thank you gift. And here it is! A great gift basket full of all sort of goodies. Thanks Chris!

Then it was on to the next box. I had a pretty good idea of what was in this one. I am sure the neighbors heard my squeals of delight as I unboxed my shipment of Froggles, my new fabric line for Blank Quilting. YES!!! I had been waiting for this to show up!

So now I have to find room to store these bolts. They will join the bolts of my other fabric lines (and a few bolts of blenders) in this cabinet in my dining room. Hey, doesn’t everyone keep fabric in their dining room? If you are quilter you do!

My fabric...a lovely sight.

The day ended with spaghetti and meatballs for dinner. Unfortunately, my dear husband Grant will argue with the “Good Day” assessment. During dinner….CRACK! My husband’s front tooth completely broke in half under the gum line. He had a root canal when he was young because of a sports injury. So now he’s off to the dentist. I swear it was not my meatballs!!!
