Mr. Baxter comes for a visit and I got a surprise today!!!! Oh, and a little peek at the bag swap.

Peg-Thank You!

"Thank you so much"-Peg @ http://happyinquilting.blogspot.com/ sent me a package I wasn't expecting at all. I tell you, quilter's have the biggest hearts. Peg, this was so thoughtful, you didn't need to (but oh it was so exciting). I'm posting before I email you, that it came today. Look what all she sent just because I sent something for the challenge she had. She wrapped a magazine Australian Quilters Companion, an address book with the most beautiful pictures of quilts and wall hangings in it, a Kit-Kat bar (yum) and a beautiful card all wrapped up in a fat quarter and tied with a bow. I have seen a project in the book I want to try and the address book is going to have all the new quilters I have met online in it. Thank you again, Peg.

Now I have to tell you about a little man, Mr. Baxter, who came and stayed with me while my DH was working so hard.





Isn't he the cutest thing, when I shake my foot he will start playing and running, see he's getting ready... This is my daughter's dog and since they went out of town he stayed with me. It's so good to have a man around the house.

I was going to show pictures of the purse I made for the purse swap and thought I can't do that now because she doesn't know who I am and I put her initials on the bag. So I guess you will have to wait until she gets it before I can show any pictures. There is only one view I can show and it is the back view. The bag is large enough for her quilting project and full of pockets so she can put all her sewing items in it when she needs to grab it and go. I'll take pictures of the other items I'm sending her tomorrow. So here's a peek:

That bag is too cute!

Joanne Kennedy said...

Well someone is going to be happy with their swap! Can't wait to see the front.

Mr. Baxter is so cute! I think you need to get a Mr. Baxter for yourself, that way he can always be there for you. Nothing like a dog to love you no matter what!

I'm so happy you didn't get hit by the storm. How scary.

Hugs,
Joanne

I love that dog of your daughters! What a darling little face he has, cute name too! Boy, when we were trying to pick a name for my son's bulldog, we went round and round, Baxter is such a cute name!

What fun a swap! Looks like you got some really great goodies for quilting.

Take care and I will check in with you soon, after the wedding mad dash has passed! YIKES!!!

XO,
Donna Lynn
