Fantastic Mail Day!

O.M.G. - O.M.G.!!!  I received my May block today for Block Swap Adventure from Gina.  She was concerned that I hadn't received it yet, and I told her that when it arrived, I would blog about its beauty to the entire world.  So here it is world.  It's a beauty!  And it came wrapped in some of the leftover fabric.

I also received my Secret Santa Sack today.  My partner is Laura Q.  She was worried that I might not like My sack because she's  not a quilter.  I told her it didn't need to be quilted.  I know that she paints, so I suggested she might paint on a canvas bag.  And so she did.  Is this amazing or what?

It is so elegant with the fabric flowers, the painting, and the fringe.  Thank you Laura, I absolutely love it!  And it's filled with Christmas presents.  Instead of send 2 gifts each month until Christmas, i think she sent them all at one time.  And I'm not allowed to open them until Christmas, of course.  ooh, that will be very difficult for me.

In other news, dh and I are going away for the weekend, just to get out of the house.  On Saturday, we're driving down Skyline Drive, so I might take a picture or two to share.

Thank you all so much for your words of comfort and support.  We'll just be taking it one day at a time, trying to remain strong and positive.  Your prayers and good thoughts are very much appreciated.
