The Wilted Quilter has a Mascot
Isn't she the cutest thing!!!??!! In my previous post, I was crying that I was too wilted and tired to quilt lately. Now, I don't have to worry because Ms. Mousie is going to pick up the slack. She is now the official mascot of my blog. See her little sign!!
This is a present from my dear friend, Diane at Clover Hill Quilts. Our guild had our monthly meeting last night at her shop. Our group met prior to the meeting at a local eatery for dinner and then went over to Diane's place to shop with a great discount to our guild members. I was a pretty good girl and only bought some great "Rose & Hubble" fabric for a backing to my niece's quilt. This is an older fabric that Diane had got from a lady who recently closed her quilt shop. When I got home I found that it was an exact match to one of the fabrics in the blocks for the quilt. I also bought a teflon pressing sheet for applique that I had wanted for some time. I think the prize for the most fabric bought went to our Francine!! She actually bought an entire bolt of fabulous pink fabric!!
I also received a great little placque from Mema, Diane's mom, to hang in my sewing room. It said "Good friends are like stars, you don't always see them but you know that they are always there". I think that's a great sentiment and is exactly how I feel about all of you gals in Blogland. I can't actually "see" you but I know you are there It's a good feeling to be able to share the ups and downs on any given day and know that you all can relate!
