My Cup Runneth Over

I received my first ever PIF gift from Jillian at Jilly's Space. (I could not figure out how to attach her link so you can just click on...); Just look at what she made and sent me!!!!!! I LOVE It!!!!! Everything is just adorable. Just in case you can't see the items well in my pics, it's an adorable bag filled with a sweet pincushion, coasters (that I think I am going to frame for my sewing room wall), a cute cute stuffed heart, cherry fat quarter, eye catching packet of red buttons, and 2 tea bags to enjoy while I have a quite morning rocking on my porch!!!!! THANK YOU JILLIAN!!!! I just bought cherry fabric to make a quilt that is one large log cabin block. Looks pretty easy and plan to work on it Saturday. My sweet gifts are already in my sewing room.

I'm having withdrawals....

No pictures to post just yet.....My life has been so busy and I don't know where to begin. I know I made a post several months back about going back to school to earn my BSN in Nursing. After all these years of being an RN by Associate degree, I finally made the plunge to go back and earn my BSN. It has taken away most of of my "me" time!!! I really have missed having my time at my sewing machine and especially since it's in my brand new sewing room. Oh wait, my goodness I forgot to post that I actually did get to stitch a little on Sunday night. My daughter is in nursing school and I got to sew her nursing program patch on her uniform top. It was great sit in that chair (if only for a minute). Good news is: I am finishing up in 1 1/2 weeks for a week break and then I'm going to close the kitchen, put up the "Gone Quilting" signs for my family and not come back to reality for a few days. LOL! I had just started blogging when I decided to go back to school, and even though I have not been posting, I'm still looking at what all of you are doing. (with a little envy of course). Hopefully the next class session, I can spare a few minutes every other day to post a little here and there and sit at my machine at least for a little while on Saturdays. Love what you all are creating out there and keep em' coming.....it helps a girl to smile! Till next time, Kathy
