This Makes Me Happy!

I love getting mail.  When it's not jury summons.  Or bills.  Or junk mail.  Or.....
Saturday, a very happy package came to my house and brought me this

from Ansje for March's STUD.  A keychain calendar, a music cd, some candy...

an exquisite pin in the shape of sewing scissors...and

this simply charming spools quilt.  The theme for March was the alphabet and Ansje's letter was "S".  I just love the fabrics she's picked out and the binding is over the top cute!  Ahh.  Just realized I forgot to take a picture of the lable she made.  It is too much.

Ansje is a flickr friend and very talented.
If you get a chance, check out her flickr photostream to see some of her beautiful work!
Thanks Ansje!

Ansje's quilt will go in the mail today or tomorrow.  We're on spring break here and this weekend was spent with friends and family near and far.  We don't have any big plans.  Friday, we are going to KT's house for the day!  I'm taking along some sewing.  Not sure what yet, but maybe this

little lovely.  This is the heart I slept walked pieced the other day.  I had a vintage sheet I used for the background.  Soft, yellow polka dot sashing.  The outside border is the top border of the sheet, which I'm just in love with.  Same happy polka dots for the binding.  This makes me happy when I look at it.  Everything Life should be about.  Soft, pretty fabric, flowers, love.

We're taking Javi to register to vote today.  Other errands.  More laundry.  More spring cleaning.  C-man had co-op yesterday and science class everyday but Friday.  Poor kid doesn't really get a spring break, but we'll be finishing up school with him my mid May!

Hope you have a bright, happy and sunshiney day today!
