Too Cute!!


My friend Cheryl from Boston sent this to me for my birthday! It's the most adorable little lamp! There's even real thread on the spool! Thank you, Sweetie! I love it! I'm going to put it up in my stash room on Grandma's treadle machine. It'll be perfect there!

Cheryl and I met on Alex's old message board. She flew out for the Road to California quilt show in 2004, and then we saw each other again last November at Alex's retreat. Can't wait until this November to see her again!

It was a very long "short" week at work. But everyone was in a good mood and the work flows seamlessly when it's like that. I need to get busy picking up around this joint tonight. Jane's coming over tomorrow for a sew day! She suggested we go to a nice little Mexican take-out place near here for food tomorrow, so no cooking. Just sewing up a storm! I can't wait!

Gratitudes:

~ All of my online friends, many of whom I have met in 3D!

~ A good interview today with an accountant!

~ A wonderful call from my brother tonight! Less than three weeks until I get to do some major hugging on him!

~ An email tonight from Judy that made me smile!

~ The inspiration I get from all of you!

You two will have a ball. And ditto on the Mexican food!

Sounds like a good week...just hire this person before you have to interview the other one!

You and Don will have a blast together. Can't Judy meet you down there too! That would be super.

Love you always,

Marilyn

That lamp is just perfect! I have an old hand crank that looks quite like that little sewing machine. Have a great time sewing with Jane!

Miss the lamp - it's adorable. I have a friend who has one on her sewing machine cabinet. I've always tried to figure out a way to put it in my purse - it's just TOO BIG. LOL

What a terrific birthday surprise.

I already know that you enjoyed your day with Jane - WooHoo - a full day of sewing!
