Bloggers are Such Nice People

After reading about my I spy quilts for my Grandsons I have had lovely offers of fabrics from my on line friends one of which was SUSAN  from Thimblestitch. Her very cute squares arrived today and I know the boys will love them in their quilts and she also put extra shine on my day my surprising me with the sweetest little handmade thread catcher. It is just adorable and I love it.
Thanks so much Susan for your kindness.
I have been very busy and managed to get a few projects to the finishing line and am sewing the binding down on this one.
I would also just like to say a great big thank you and send  huge squishy hugs to all of you who left me such uplifting comments with regards to my interview on Bronwyn Hayes lovely blog Red Brolly. It was so kind of you all and I really appreciate it. With regards to the interview my Daughter Melissa took all of the photos and got generally driven crazy by her mad Mother for a whole day trying to decide what I wanted.
I shall leave you with a lovely photo  Melissa took while we were preparing for the interview. You can see more of her photography here. I just love this one.
Have a great weekend everyone.
