Well things certainly livened up around here! The mailman came and brought some excitement! Winona (no blog, yet) sent me this gorgeous purse and accessories! It is just beautiful. Look at the wonderful crosshatching on the bag....Included were matching wallet...the slots are incredible (I forgot to take a pic of the inside), a coin purse (with a penny for luck), a kleenex holder, and a glasses case!!I just love it all!!! Thank you SOOOO much Winona!!!! I have everything all organized in there. It was not difficult as the inside of the purse is full of wonderful pockets!!!I know...5 tubes of lipstick, but a girl has to be prepared!
Winona also included little packages for Charlotte and Zach. She made them crayon holders. Charlotte has hers loaded with crayons now. Zach, also, and he used his this morning during math. The kids say "Thank You WINONA!!!!!Winona and I chit chat on the phone once in a while....along with quilting, diet, husbands and grandkids, we love to talk Biggest Loser!! Last night we were both thrilled to see our favorite win!!! Our least favorite almost slipped and fell. I had a bad thought, but soon contained myself! She really was mean!!!!
I, too, have been busy sewing and am almost finished with my last project. I can't tell you what it is, but I love, love, love this fabric. It is Moda, 3 Sisters, Vienna Nights Collection. It is part of my Galena fabric, and is almost gone now.
Along with the excitement of Mail, Biggest Loser's finale, and sewing, My little Emerson came for a visit. TJ came too, but avoided the camera like the plague. I am glad Emerson can't run!!! I just have to share some of my newest photos of her. These were taken just after I fed her cereal and a bottle. The girl likes her food!!!!We shared stories back and forth....she listened intently until she had something to say.She ooooooed and aaaaaaaaahed and used her hands to animate her story the entire time.Then she would notice those animated hands and stop to look at them for a moment.Then she would talk some more.Oh, she also found her tongue.....see.....After a while, she was ready for her nap. She always likes something over her face when she sleeps. She will turn her face into a blanket if you don't give her something to half cover her whole head!"Enough with that camera, Grandma. Let a girl get her beauty sleep!!!"She slept most of her nap with her little hand up in the air..... I think that is enough excitement for one day, don't you???
