The dotty chicken fabric or the fried egg pincushion??
Well in this case it is the egg, but it should have been the chicken fabric because it was mailed first. Aren't both of these adorable? I see you shaking your head up and down - very good.
They are both gifts from other bloggers - quilty crafty bloggers are some of the nicest people. Terry at Terry's Treasures made the felt friend eggs pincushion with the smiley little face. And Melinda at Melinda Quilts ETC gifted me the wonderful chicken fabric. Thank you both from the bottom of my polka dot heart!!
Now I just was able to let Melinda know that the fabric had arrived, even though it has a postmark from over a week ago. Melinda's package won the weekly mail mix up lottery. I live in a neighborhood with lots of duplicate house numbers, but different street names and we have had a succession of mail people who don't seem to pay too close attention to this fact. Every week I get at least one item that belongs to someone else in the neighborhood but has the same house number. I usually just take the item and drop it in the correct person's mailbox. However some neighbors mark it "wrong address" and send it back to the branch post office and let the item do another rotation in hopes that this time around it ends up where it should have gone and this adds several days to the delivery time. Sometimes things never show up and I wonder if the people who received it accidentally opened it and then kept it. We've had all kinds of things disappear and it is annoying.
Well I can't believe it is already Wednesday. I've had stuff going on every day. Last night was a fun event. I went and saw these guys...
they put on a great show even if these do look like this...
There were over 10,000 people there and we sang every Beach Boys song. It amazes me how many of us aging Midwestern baby boomers still love tunes like Surfin' Safari and and Catch a Wave and Surfer Girl.
Hope your week is going well - happy stitching!
