Lots of goodies waiting at the post office this morning. Firstly from Chookyblue a stitchery pattern and some quilt labels for leaving a comment on her 50th post. How easy was that! Thanks very much!
Second is my birthday present from DH. My birthday is still a few weeks away but seeing as I organised this I wasn't going to wait - The Civil War Diary Quilt and The Civil War Love Letter Quilt. I wanted the Diary book last year for my birthday and without going into the long drawn out story, I didn't get it. So on the 17th of July I pointed out to him that there weren't many shopping days left till my birthday if you had to order something from the states! He said order what you want, and I did! Thanks so much Russ.
Will I make the quilts? I don't know. Taking my track record into account probably not, but they look interesting reading. I'll need to start a collection of Civil War Repros now.
