Some goodies in the mail and tomorrow...........

These last days I have received some quilt goodies in the mailbox. Want to see.................????

First I got an envelope from Lappemor and Hanne. A beautiful pattern which have been on my wishlist some time. And a T-shirt with Lappemors logo on. I will wear it for sure. Love her logo. I guess Hanne fixed this when she visited this shop on her summer holiday. Thank you both for a lovely surprise. I did not get the oportunity to visit Anne Heidi's shop when I passed through Tynset, but I promise I will soon.
Same day I also got a big envelope from Nadine in Belgium. She wanted me to rest my arm and therefore she sendt me this lovely book "A patchwork collection of inspirational Stories, Quilts are forever" by Kathy Lanmancusa. Do you know this book? It is so wonderful. It is full of wonderful quilting stories. As Kathy writes on the back of the book; these stories deliver the spirit of quilting, friendship and love with every word. I enjoy reading these stories and recomend it to you. Thank you for all these goodies Nadine :)

These stories makes me think. In old times women had their quilting bees where they met around the quilt, telling stories, quilted and had fun. Now in modern time we meet in blogland, sharing ideas and photos of our hobby. Making good friends all over the world. Perhaps this is the modern way of having a quilting bee.

Nadine; I've found my DJ blocks. 46 finished and 15 border blocks. I know I'll never finish them, sooooooo............... LOL
And today the fabric I have ordered from Northern Quilts arrived. Look how pretty they are. I have this pattern that I want to make, but none of my fabrics was what I wanted. How odd...... LOL Anyone else out there having the same problem?????
I always want to reduce my stash, but this time I really did not have what I wanted in my stash.................LOL

I have something to admit.................
................yesterday I had to find my stitchery and do some stitches. I used a very short thread as my physiotherapist told me to do. I manage to sew slow, very slooooooow and rested while changing to a new thread. It felt sooooooo good.

This evening I will trace some new stitcheries to bring with me to the cabin this weekend. I do not know if I'm able to sew anything, but I have to bring it with in case I can.

Because tomorrow am I having my shoulder surgery. I starting to feel a bit restless and I'm having butterflies in my stomach. But I'm perhaps so stupied that I'm not afraid.....yet. After having so much pain these last months I am looking forward to get my shoulder fixed. And then sewing sewing sewing ...............LOL

It's day surgery and I will come home in the afternoon. A friend will stay over here with me so I will not be alone the first evening/night after surgery. If I'm not able to blog tomorrow or the day after, and you want to know how I'm feeling, Laila at Jacobs Quilt have promised to give a report to you. And on thursday evening or friday morning I'm going to the cabin with eight other quilting girls. Better to be together with them and be spoiled than staying home alone :)


Oh yes.....I got my Secret Santa friends name today. I know exactly what to make for her. And Donna................ I promise to be a good girl and not tell anything to xxxxxxxx.



Saying for today:

Never let a sewing machine know you're in a hurry

Good luck on your surgery. I'm wondering though what are you having done to your shoulder?

Stitching always feels good doesn't it? I hope you recover quickly and are back to sewing and stitching soon.

Angela said...

Sending you healing prayers! Be a good girl and mindful of what the doctor says now.

Hei May-Britt - kan du ikke værsåsnill å ta ett bilde til av de glassdropsa - på en nøytral bakgrunn så vi får sett ordentlig på dem.

Leanne said...

All the best for tomorrow my thoughts will be with you. Rest up and you will recover faster.

Julia said...

Good Luck with your surgery. I hope that you will be pain free and back to stitching in no time. What a wonderful way to recover from surgery, spending time in a cabin with quilting friends.

Colleen said...

My mother had many a quilting bee in our home growing up. I loved your comparison with blogging today! It was great! I've often wondered what my mother would think of all the new quilting techniques and methods and equipment we have now. She died in the early 70's so alot has changed. Good luck with your surgery and I pray for a speedy recovery in not time. I wish for you pain-free sewing soon!
