Quilt Pink and Mother's Day

I had two packages this afternoon. First, my quilt I bid for and won from the Quilt Pink Auction. Thanks to *Bidder #5* I had to work very hard to win the auction but I'm glad I didn't drop out for a couple reasons - I love the quilt and it was donated by Little Quilts in Marietta (I was feeling nostalgic just having moved from there).

The second package was Mother's Day Flowers from Chris & Becky and Adam.


Thanks for all the encouraging comments - I'm going to visit Mom for a week so maybe when I get back I can finish my Spiderweb top and quilt the top for my Aunt. I'm usually very tolerant of my work so I'm not sure why I've been displeased lately but taking a break will help.

Those flowers are soooo pretty! What great kids. And the pink quilt is just fabulous, and the money went to such a good cause.

Hi Mary! Admired again your quilts. The spiderweb is beautiful,but much sewing with stripes! Yor quiting Fay Feathers is so fine I never seen. We have only 1 longarmer here, what I know, and she has 5 designs!!!
Your hometown Minnesota looks inviting! I was at my mother several days, wish you happy visiting at your Mother! Aune

Glad you got that pretty pink quilt. I really can't compete for bids as they usually end while I am at work, and doing e-bay at work is a big fat no-no. Bummer. Have a great trip. (Fantastic flowers.)

I have to say - that althought I love teh tulips and yoru quilt you bought on eBay is beautiful - the main reason I am leaving a comment is b/c I think Chesty looks so HANDSOME out on your patio!!! How in the world do you keep him so clean. His fur looks like Cool-Whip :c) ~Bonnie
