Big Thing #1 - THANK YOU all SO much for your lovely comments!! You all are so kind and encouraging - you make my world a brighter place to be - and I'm so grateful! And, I also got so many more wonderful ideas on the little things we can enjoy to make life sweet!! So thanks girls!
Big Thing #2 - The winner of the last member of the "Lonely Quilt Tops Club" chosen by RNG is
Mary of Quilt Hollow! Now, here is the amazing thing - I had no idea when I put this quilt up to give away, that someone would be so sweet as to offer to quilt it for free! But, that Charming Girl Wendy of Why Knot Kwilt blew me away with her generosity!
And, believe it or not - our friend Mary won't be keeping this quilt - she's going to give it to a dear blogging friend of hers who's 17 year old son recently passed away - just to let her friend know that people care - and to hopefully brighten her day a bit!!!
I think this might be why I LOVE BLOGLAND so stinkin' much!!!
BIG THINK #3 - Brave Girls!!!
A couple of months ago, my dear bloggy friend Carol of Brown Quilts told me about these inspirational e-mails she gets from "The Brave Girls Club" - and I signed up for them, too! It's fair to say WE LOVE our
Brave Girls e-mails!
Every week-day, Carol and I look forward to reading these e-mails - they are one of life's simple pleasures - and I wanted to share so that you can sign up, too - if you're interested!!
BIG THING #4 - Soul Restoration II Class! I signed up for this class - it starts June 7 - and I just can't wait!! It's an "artsy" journey to creating the life you've always wanted! We'll be making fun art projects to help us as we assess our unique talents and gifts, clarify our purpose, goals, and dreams, identify the things that hold us back, break down goals into bit sized pieces - and even set up rewards for ourselves along the way (I just love that rewards part (smile))!!
You can watch the class videos when it's convenient for you - and participate with women all over the world (and little ole me)- in this fun journey! Registration is still open (the class is $99.00)! For more info, go HERE!
If you do happen to sign up - let me know - so we can chat, and share the experience! I'm sure I'll be sharing my art projects here throughout the summer!
BIG THING #5 - I put the finishing touches on
"Simple Things" our quilt along (mini) sample - and Carol did the larger version! We are beyond excited!
The quilt along starts a bit later this week - so stay tuned!
