Today I got home after having been away for 2 weeks.....Love that fall intercession from Year Round school.... And, what do I find first thing on the table is a sweet package from Myra....Isn't this the cutest little bird you have ever seen????? Myra says this birdie was made to perch on my fall themed tree and it will be perfect~~~ Thanks SO MUCH for this wonderful surprise and Random Act of Kindness Myra...TOO cute!



Next, I had a package from Joan in our Fair and Square Exchange....She knows me all too well with this darling LHN piece~ I have the perfect fabric I am going to use on this one Joan...Thanks again for being my exchange partner!! I absolutely love what you made for me~~




And my dear friend Anglea from England sent me the nicest surprise~~~ It is a lavendar filled sachet with my initial on it....Done is RED no less~~~ AND, some of the prettiest ribbons for my embellishments.... Your wonderful surprise has truly blown me away Angela~~~ Thanks so very much for thinking of me~~~ I love it~~
Lastly, here is a poorly made snapshot of my completed block of SoHRH....I took it last night at the beach under no so good lighting conditions and it really tells.... I probably shouldnt post such a shabby shot, but wanted you to see my progress......I have fallen in love with this larger piece and know have 5 out of 12 blocks done...............
So, that is it for today....I have a mound of mail, MUCH cleaning to do (I live with all men in the household!!!) and not much food in the frig..... Guess you can tell what I will be doing the next couple days~~~~ But it sure was nice of them to let me sneak away for a couple weeks....Some me, myself and I time........

Wow Faye - how special is it to come home from holidays and find something special waiting for us (apart from family of course!) The pieces are beautiful and I love your finished square too! We are fairly blessed in this stitching world to have made such lovely friends with such a delightful common interest! Glad you enjoyed the break - sometimes we just deserve these things and this time to ourselves. Enjoy your day and your chores!! xx

Glad you liked my choice for the Fair and Square. I really enjoyed stitching it for you.

Myra said...

Wow! Your Shores block looks great. I am glad you like my little birdy and your squares and the little sachet are gorgeous. Good for you to be able to get 2 weeks of "recharging" time just before the cold weather sets in. Enjoy the chores and grocery shopping! :o)

Welcome back! I live in a house of men too. I love every second of it! No drama and mostly good times. Only 1 is messy.

What wonderful welcome home surprises! Your SoHRH looks fantastic. What fabric are you using? There is absolutely nothing wrong with your picture.
