Starting the Week a Day Late

 I had a surprise package in the pile of mail when I got home yesterday!  A friend brought a huge pile of sock yarn to my mom's for ME!  Mom knew I would love to get a preview of the pile and so she mailed me some!  Yippee!  You can never have too much yarn, right?!  Thank you to Sharon for your generosity and for Mom who doesn't like to wait for good things either!
I loaded the embroidered quilt for Millie on the frame again this morning and changed the threads and designs from the disastrous first attempt and it is progressing wonderfully this time!

Now off to do some major cleaning out for a joint yard sale this Thursday and Friday.....

    happy hunting for the yard sale:)
