A Very Nice Surprise

Today when Mr. Muddling and I got home from visiting Miss Ru in the hospital, there was a package waiting for me.  I had won a giveaway from the wonderful Millie of Millie's Quilting on Monday, and it is here!  I have been wanting to make a Christmas quilt and Millie has also given me a craving to make a Chinese Coin quilt.  Now she has given me the materials to make this a two-in-one satisfaction to both of those. Thank you so much, Millie!  It is generous, talented people like you who make blogging so much fun.

Dinah is not happy about Miss Ru's absence and is very vocal about letting us know that.  You would not believe what a voice that tiny little kitten has!

Lady thinks that every dog toy here belongs to her.  Someone has spoiled her badly and his name is Mr. Muddling.  It was inevitable though, she was so tiny and so sick when she arrived - we just are thankful she is alive and well and she really is a sweet little girl.

Bruno of course is the best dog in the world.  For me.  I am always thankful for him.

Here are a few more pictures of the 2 inch strips in Millie's package.

These, along with the 1 inch and 1 1/2 inch strips are going to make putting together one of those coin quilts very easy.

Isn't it funny to think how very close Christmas is getting?  I love Christmas.  It will soon be time to decorate, and that's one of my favorite things.

Blog friends are truly some of the best in the world.  We may never meet in person, but I love you just the same.  I'm thankful for this world of blogging that we share.

Hugs and kisses,

That was a lovely surprise. Happy sewing.
Looks like all the animals were happy to see you home, too.
Best wishes to Miss Ru.

How fun to see the happy little muddling furries. I love how you said SOMEONE has spoiled Lady and then point the stick directly at Mr. Muddling -- too funny!

And, I must disagree that it's funny to think how close Christmas is -- not funny at all -- SCARY!!!!
