Day SIX: The mind is tired, yet the body remains strong!

Day Six:  On the family walk today, I was so tired, so tired....but my strong, sure feet carried me to the end.

Picasa play day...  Collage.
Fun, don't you think? 

From my favorite monkey came this sweet, sweet package!  Two little quiltlets, a house that I am ready to move into today, and "my favorite things", Horses and an abundance of birds.  I love and loved all of it....from the Greeting stamp to the alphabet card with a "J"....but most of all the quilts that were done with so much care.  Katy noticed that I favorite-ed (on flickr) the house quilt and so she made me this bonus one.  What a pal!   I also love that she chose such cool fabrics, some that I had never seen before.  There is no better way to win the heart of a fabric hoarder, I mean collector, than to give her some lovely bits in a finished quilt.   I am a blessed quilter.

Note:  My quilt from yesterday started out from the bizarre log cabins in the middle with the pointy hats, I think that I am going to make many more house-ish projects before I am ready to move on.  I just keep making things that look like that.  I used Kona cottons for all the colors and the white-ish color is Jo-ann's quilter's cottons in Parchment.  I have not liked some of the weights of Joann's solids...but Crazy Mom uses, a LOT of it, so I thought to give it a try.  It is really nice and is white enough, but not too white.   I am sold.
Peace to you today!

whoa - those little quilts look so cool all picasaed up! (ok, that's a little on the boasty side, me being the monkey in question!) I am still floating on a happy cloud after you told me how much you loved them. You made my day, thank you x
