I'm home and very happy to be back in my nest :) We were in East Texas helping my parents pack up their house and enjoying one last visit. The kids got to swim in the lake and hunt for critters, take turns driving the golf cart and were indulged in several trips to the cafeteria - something we don't have here in Idaho. I knew when my daughter said, "I kin kitch him", referring to a cat that got out, that it was time to be on our way back home. What is it about a southern accent that is so contagious?
The last thing I did before leaving town was go by the post office to see if my Back Tack package had arrived and it hadn't, so I've been very anxious and excited to get home and see what I got. It came beautifully wrapped in a polka dot tea towel (I re-wrapped it for the photo, my BT pal did a better job) and was filled with an assortment of beautiful fabrics, ribbon, cool old buttons, embroidery thread and sequins! There are sweet treats for me too - some exotic flavored tea, a little bear notepad and a bouquet of flower pins. Thank you so much Back Tack pal, I love it and can't wait to get started on my project! (click on each picture for a larger view)
Speaking of projects, I see Amy is getting a monthly apron sew-a-long going that I really want to participate in but I don't know if I'll have enough time this month - I love the theme though, Home on the Range :) I also received copies of Amy's vintage bird crochet patterns and Stephanie's baby lamb pattern, both projects I'm excited to do; thanks to you both, I'll get something in the mail to you real soon!
I came home with lots of goodies that I can't wait to show you in the next couple of posts but I've got to get back to my chores for now.
