Happy Birthday Auntie!

This was the birthday present I sent my auntie.  When I packed it, I was worried the little penny rug would get lost in the tissue paper so I wrapped it in a piece of neon green tissue paper and wrote on the card that she should look for it.  Well, she didn't and threw the tissue paper in the dumpster!  She emailed me and thanked me for the turkey but not the penny rug so I called her and told her to look for it-that's how I found out it was in the dumpster.  My aunt's husband, who is obviously awesome, dug in the dumpster until he found it for her!  She is pleased to have all of her birthday present.  

So now I am stitching a matching penny rug for me-in honor of Ray!

Bought this miniature at the Quilt Festival!  I liked to so much I bought a second one in different colors for my aunt's Christmas present.

Wool Crazy

Well, guess I have a wool stash now!  I've spent two days at the quilt show and I still need several pieces for a pattern I bought!


 It's a top!  My goal for my two week vacation was to get this to a top and here it is!
