More odd bits of news!

Hi There!

Okay, here's another GREAT buy
that I picked up at Mardens:
Perle Cotton Thread....
2 for $1.00 !!!!

Now, since I posted my BRIGHT colors,
my friend Frummie sent me a picture
of fabs that she picked up
YESTERDAY afternoon.

Guess what?!??
They're "Brights", too!!!!

Sorry Frummie.
I KNOW I should have asked you first,
but I didn't think you'd mind
if I posted your pic on here.

Then, today, my cousin "G" sent me an email.

She managed to find out information
about "Cali Elena"!!!!

Here's what "G" wrote:

"Hi - I was reading your blog - congratulations to you for your new (to you) sewing machine! Sounds like it was a big surprise! You probably have found this by now, but this page says your machine was made in 1951 at Anderson, South Carolina USA. ~ G ~"
Hope you don't mind that I
copied your email, "G"!!!

Now, at least I know that
"Cali Elena" was born in 1951 !!!

Thanks "G"!!!!!

On the sewing front, I've completed
a over-the-shoulder tote,
for my niece, whom I affectionately call
"Princess Sophia". *grin*

And then, since I had a LOT
of Eye Spy fabrics,
I decided to make an
Eye Spy quilt, for
the Princess.

No, it's not quilted yet,
but it IS on my "to-do" list,
once I start helping my
friend with her Long Arm machine.

Here's a couple close-ups...

And the bottom part...

Okay, I'm pretty tired....

Hope you have a great evening!

great I spy quilt, Rosa- you do such fun things for others.. I am sure your niece will love the bag- very cute and would be very popular in my kindergarten.
I see you got to Marden's - good price on floss and such great colors.
Nice little sewing machine- something wonderful about those older machines.

Thanks for the lovely Tim's card- I have been the luckiest lady these days.
