One more post for the day…with pictures…

I was going to post and share a picture of something I purchased YEARS ago and finally used it today to aid in separating values in some batiks (it was something I got on sale on a whim)…

Then I was going to show off all the neat things I have “acquired” this week from Cheryl….an AWSOME PEZ dispenser and a cool coin purse in lime green of course (sorry Cheryl, not going to show off my new clothing):

This someone from work gave me this cool pirate fabric—which by some weirdness I did not own yet –and a yard to boot!!

Oh and did I mention, this weekend is my local Ren Faire opening weekend?Β  Yes, I get to play pirates on Saturday πŸ™‚

Well, that was my plan to show off some pictures from my week….that doesn’t involve sewing….until today’s mail came…..

I FINALLY….FINALLY (I was not happy it too this long) got my Quilter’s Home Magazine.Β  While I have read most of it at work, I will finish it up….my favorite line still is “my friends call me the Gay Martha Stewart” pg. 62.

And then a totally complete surprise package from the wonderful Ms. Betsy.Β  Let me say I’m still rather speechless and so moved by her generosity.Β  But I do want to share because it is just incredible what she sent me.Β  Let’s see, the first little thing is bling!!

Then, there was a little fabric basket, 6 coasters and a BOO hand towel….well, all things are Halloween πŸ™‚

And last but not least this gorgeous table topper (that I might use as a wall hanging):

I apologize for being a show off of my gift from Betsy, but I’m so genuinely moved by her gift I want to share it with everyone.Β  This was one of the most moving packages I have received and I will treasure all these gifts!Β  Thank you again, Ms. Betsy!

I’m tuckered out now with all this excitement.
