As you may know, the stork is the symbol of Alsace, and you can see it everywhere...
Back home, I found a lovely surprise package in my mailbox.
Who was it from ????? May Britt, of course !
And what was inside ?????
hmmmmm, she spoiled me again with a lovely, lovely pouch
(she knows how bad I am at doing these, heehee....)
gorgeous Kaffe Fasset fabrics
applique needles (how did she know I needed new ones ???)
and cuuuute gingermen buttons.
THANK YOU SO MUCH, dear friend !

Then we'll have dinner all together
around the family table
and we'll talk and remember the good old days.
Laughters, photos, favourite quotes & things...
A very nice moment.

That's how I felt, when reading TAZZIE's last post, this morning. Please, go and visit this nice lady. I think she needs some friendly encouragements...
Not only fabric and thread are involved in a gift of friendship,
but also time and true feelings,
and when it leaves our home, a piece of our heart is going with it...

THANKS, DEAR CONNIE ! :>)
Did I only spend my time, browsing Blogland, visiting my friends (yes, you!), and looking at all your beautiful projects ? Well,
I PROGRESSED, TOO... AT MY OWN PACE (remember the "turtle quilter"?)
Here's my first big block of 12 birdies... Five more to go. I really, really enjoy handpiecing them together, and adding some stitcheries for the eyes, beaks, and feathers..
A nice pile of blue fabrics are ready for many other birdies (72 in total), together with other ones for applique leaves, and yummy brown rick-rack for the branches where the birds are standing on...
I also made a felted needlecase + pincushion for a swap partner. It's flying to her now, shhhh...
This is the inside of the needlecase. It took me some time to finish, but I enjoyed making these
Of course, I spent some afternoons and evenings on my Angels Story quilt blocks, fusing and stitching. Can't show my progress today, as a local quilter friend borrowed them for the week-end (she's starting this project). I'm working on blocks 9 + 10 (out of 15).... slowly but surely, I'll reach my goal ...but I'll certainly won't win STINA 's challenge ! HeeHee. Never mind, what matters is the journey !
On another subject,
I'd like to share with you some personnal thoughts about my blogging.
I've been considering about closing this blog, the only reason being me.
Don't worry, there's nothing serious at all : I'm fine, happy, and life is beautiful (moreover, with retirement coming by next December, Yepeeeeee !).... but I'm enjoying taking my time, and I realize I've been a "bad blogger" for quite some time, now : few posts, slow progress, etc... Then I thought I would feel so sad, cutting that link between you and me - I've been blogging for nearly 3 years - and I've learned (and got) soooo much through you all. I'm so grateful....
So, maybe a "BLOG BREAK" ? Like I've seen some friends among us did ?
I'll think about it, with you all in my heart :>)
ENJOY YOUR SEWING !
THANKS FOR YOUR VISIT... 'TIL NEXT TIME !
