Stopping by to say...

This is a quick post to say two things: 

First, a much heartfelt thanks to my friend Ann who has spoiled me with a wonderful package of goodies!  Am I a lucky girl, or what? I just love everything! 

The two pieces of fabrics on the left are Liberty prints! Yes, now you know who had started me on the Liberty madness! Thank you again, Ann! :-)

Second - we just finished watching the final match of the FIFA World Cup.  Big congratulations to Germany! Well done! What a great team, what a great match, what a fantastic World Cup this has been! I think it's the most exciting World Cup we've seen in awhile.   This game arouses passions around the world. See you again in four years! 

And that's me for this quickie post. Life is good. Summer is here and it's hot! (Hot for here.) Even the cats are moving slower! 

Happy Stitching!

Even for someone like me who doesn't usually enjoy football, I did dip into a few of the matches this time round. Next up the Commonwealth Games which, of course take place around twenty miles away from where I live. Glad you like everything.

That was so sweet of Ann! We watched the World Cup too but missed the goal since we had to catch our flight. Seattle was sweltering but so much fun! Hope you're staying cool and enjoying the summer so far. Thanks for the info on AVFS. I haven't had time to stitch and figure out what I want to do since I emailed you. :)
