Two More Anticipated SOK Packets Arrive

When I originally humiliated myself by begging, er, I mean asking for your Thimbleberries scraps for my Seeds of Kindness charm quilt, I didn't think I'd get much of a response. Oh, me of little faith! Before today, I received over 200 different pieces.

This AM was spent at the dentist. I am getting a crown. No, I didn't win the Mrs. America contest. Those days are gone. Long gone. I took a picture of my temporary crown, but it was lifesized, and frankly disgusting. Only my dear dentist has looked that closely into my open mouth! He put the temporary crown on today. I go back in 3 weeks for the real deal. Expen$ive!!

My two oldest boys went with me for their semi-annual dental cleanings.

To add insult to injury, I went shopping for shoes after bringing the boys back home. I can't think of much I like less than shopping. The shoes I'm replacing are at least 15 years old. I think I can get another year out of them! They are black dress shoes. Not only are the styles outrageous, the prices sent me into shock! After some deep breathing I was just fine.

To add a bright spot to my day, on one of my calls home, my WH informed me that two more seed packets had arrived. One was 10 pieces and 2 lovely self-published patterns from my new dear b-friend, Marcie, and another air mail pack with lots of pieces (I think 40+) from a new cohort, Cathi in Canada (hi to all Canucks reading).

Note to self: do not take picture of Thimbleberries fabrics on top of quilt made from Thimbleberries fabrics. Duly noted.

You are going to have enough seeds to make a full size quilt if that keeps on. The power of the internet. Wonderful.

I'm with you on buying shoes. HUG I'd rather be barefoot.
