Don't You Just Love It When They Love It?

I did deliver my latest quilt to my beautiful friend yesterday morning, and then last night night I got the sweetest card, including a picture of her with the quilt.  Makes me happy, and it means so much to me that she took the time to write a real, honest-to-goodness thank you note.  Those are rare these days, and I have to admit - I'm lax in that department, too.

I really hate to show you a picture of my ratty notepad holder.  I made it for myself a couple of years ago.  I made a lot of these and gave them away to friends and family.  I even did a little tutorial showing how they were made. 

I have absolutely no excuse for not making another one for myself.  This one is truly pathetic.

Anyway, I got busy Saturday (in between finishing-the-groovy-quilt things) and made myself a new one.
I do so love these happy Mary Engelbreit fabrics. 

They just make me smile.

Yippee Yay!  I'm back in business.  I always carry one of these little notepads in my purse.  I keep a running grocery/whatever list of things I need to buy next time I hit the stores.  It's also always a good idea to have a way to take notes when you run across something you want to remember.

It's a beautiful, hot, sunny day here in Houston today.  Hope your day is perfectly wonderful!

Hugs and kisses,

I smiled when I read "in between finishing the groovy quilting things!" I love M.E. fabric as well but I don't do auxillary sewing so one of these cool things wouldn't make it into creation over at LeeHaven. I do other things though. Good thing else I'd never be able to show my face Muddling Through. :0

Oh I LOVE it! I'll have a look at your tute. It looks like a very handy little note book.

Love the notebook cover, I have a secret love affair with paper, and pens and crayons and well, you get the idea...I've been wanting to make a cover; never have. So, nice to get handwritten notes, something I forget to do, too.

Love the cute thank-you note -- how thoughtful of your quilt recipient. And your little notepad holder is super cute too!

I love the fabric on your notepad cover. It is really pretty. It's a good idea to always carry notepads with you.
I'm so glad your friend was happy to get the quilt. How sweet of her to write the note.

Hope you have a great fall day.
