"Mid-Week" Post......with nice mail.....and 3rd Annual Neighborhood Block Party

 "It is one of the blessings of old friends that you can afford to be stupid with them."   ― Ralph Waldo Emerson 


I thought I would post something in the middle of MY work week......I've worked half my week already.....will work Monday and Tuesday and then I'm off!!  With that I will get a chance to catch my breath again after returning from vacation last week and going directly back to work the next day........

So here is what I wanted to show you was waiting in the mail when I got home! 
  I won these beautiful appliqued kitchen towels on a giveaway at one of my favorite blogs, "Needled Mom".  Mary also included that yummy green FQ with the Inspirational words too!  Thanks, Mary....I so love all of it!


I entered a postage stamp swap at the Curious Quilter also and had 6 envelopes with 100 charms each waiting!  With this swap I will have well over 1000 charms for my quilt...........I think with all the finishes I need to get done by Christmas this might be a project for next year................


  I also joined Beth Shibley's 3rd annual Neighborhood Block Party..............This is a lotto..........we will make one house block and hope to win several.............this year Beth at Love, Laugh, Quilt  is also asking for an extra block or orphan block to use for a charity quilt............if you are interested .......check out the link............ I noticed several of my followers and bloggers that I follow have already entered also!
 

 Ok I am going to wind this up because I have to be to work before 7:00 tomorrow morning.......so I will talk to you again on Wednesday for OFW...........and just say Ta-Ta for now.............

Glad that you enjoyed your goodies.

I can't wait to see all of your little squares together.

Your house is darling. I need to get mine made and in the mail to Beth too.

Enjoy your days off.

Nice win you had from Needled Mom. WTG! It's so exciting that you received so many postage stamp charms already. Maybe mine will all be in the mail when I get home this week :) Can't wait to see what kind of house you come up with this year. I loved the one you did last year.
