Why there is a smile on my face

I caught a cold this week and am at the "I think my head's going to explode" stage. When you need tissues with you every minute of the day.
So why the heck would I be smiling so much this morning?

Yipeeee!!! Look at the giveaway goodies that arrived for me - all the way from the U.K., thanks to the generosity of Jane. A pretty practical tote and a couple of quilting mags. What a wonderful way to start my day. Thank-you, Jane! I see a cup of tea and some quiet time browsing through the magazines taking place later today.

*Just a brief update on my thrifty plaid quilt... I managed to get the extra round on about 10 blocks (not shown in this photo) and hope to finish the rest today. So far, I'm liking the results. Another reason to smile (even as I grab for another tissue...).

Hope your day is filled with reasons to smile!


  1. Love the jeans bag - maybe I'll make something similar from my pile of old jeans.

    You must tell me how you linked to your Flickr photos in the sidebar!

  2. what a great package to get in the mail! your quilt is looking wonderful.

  3. good package, great quilt and hope you are feeling better really soon......

  4. Wonderful gifts and quilt and hurray for the inventor of tissues./ Hope you will soon feel better!

  5. How cool is that seeing that bag on your blog!! Glad to have been able to provide some reading for your tea break :o)
    Love the plaid blocks..and can't wait to see it when it's all together!

  6. The quilt is looking great! I think you must have inspired me - I bought a plaid shirt at the thrift store today! Hope you are feeling better soon, looks like you've got lots of fun stuff to read in the meantime! Take care!

  7. What pretty new treasures! Hope you feel better soon :)

  8. great quilt, what size is the center square?? I'm thinking I need to make one with all these jelly rolls I have maybe with a
    4 1/2" center and make something for ME! Hope you're feeling better


Go ahead...say something! Got a question for me? Ask it! I can't wait to hear from you... so start writing... and thanks in advance for letting me know you're sharing in my online adventures. Hugs and happiness to you!
