Jingle All the Way!!

I know that it is Spring.  Well, supposedly.  With all the cold weather and snow everywhere, it is sometimes difficult to tell.  Being in the mood for something quick and fun, I put together a doll quilt...with flannel!  

 Jingles Flannel by Minick and Simpson (2009).
Measures 18 inches square.
Tied with red perle cotton.

 Now, that should make the warm weather come...don't you think?  ~grin~

I received a surprise package from my older sister, Joyce, this week.  She just learned how to read a knitting pattern, so has been busy knitting some fun dish cloths with designs!  The first one she did was a church design...

The note included with it read, "I am giving you my very first Church dishcloth because you were so instrumental at getting me back on track with my faith and I thank you for that and love you very much."  That is so special and made me tear up, that's for sure!   

The other one she sent was this...
The state I live in...Wisconsin.  Pretty cool, hey? 

Joyce is such a special person and a wonderful older sister!!

This week, I have been working on some other projects which I cannot show you quite yet.  And, I finished hand sewing the binding on me Mum's quilt...  

I don't have anyone to hold it or anywhere big enough to lay it out, so will need to wait before I am able to show you the entire thing.  I will be getting it laundered and photographed soon, though...I will be taking it to me Mum in 2 weeks!  I am so very excited to see her bed all decked out with her new quilt and pillows and bed skirt.

I should be able to show you a few more things before the end of the month.  

Wishing you all a Blessed Easter weekend!

"For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.". Jeremiah 29:11

Your Mom is going to love her new quilt. Great new dishcloths too. The church one is extra special with the story behind it.

Oh my gosh! The doll quilt is darling! And I didn't know you were going to post my note on your blog! But that's okay to share it. I was wondering if you were going to share that you couldn't figure out the Wisconsin dishcloth cuz you were looking at it upside down!!! That was so funny! Glad you liked the surprise. Can't wait to see what else you are working on and mom is just going to love her new quilt!! Love you - Joyce
