Improvement, progress and a little goodie~

Hannah Lovina Joslin
Blackbird Designs
32 ct Latte Country French linen
Overdyed threads specified

First I would like to really, really thank everyone who has sent well wishes to my MIL...She is improving slowly.... Once she got home Tuesday night, it brightened her spirits alot~~ Thanks again for all the emails and well wishes....It truly has made my heart smile.

Secondly, Hannah is coming right along pretty nicely! I hope to finish the right side border and flowers in the middle this weekend~~ The colors are really soothing...I have been truly addicted to this piece~


Lastly, isn't this the cutest little quilted pillow you have ever seen?? It just made my day when I opened the mailbox and saw an unexpected package in there..... Many of you follow Myra's blog and know what an accomplished quilter she is....Well, she sent this cute quilted pillow with a sweet that said.." Just a little something to brighten your day!".. Oh, Myra, you have no idea how this little treat lifted my spirits....Thanks so very much from the bottom of my heart~
Here's hoping everyone has a great weekend and find time to do somthing for themselves..Whether it is something with your loved ones, or just a little quiet time, pause a while....You will be glad you did~~ ((Hugs)), Faye
