Today=lovely

After school today my mom had made her delicious Chicken Spaghetti and TEXTED Adam and I to come over. yummy!! It was great visiting with her and letting Catalina run around in the back yard. She loved the yard so much that we are letting my parents keep her for tonight :) She misses her grammy and grampy :)
When I got home, the mailbox was full of amazing Happy Mail from lovely friends:

First of all, how cute is that banner that Jaime made for the Happy Mail blog? (Which by the way is accepting more people for the next round!!)
I received this special special embroidery from Jaime herself!

One of the million reasons why I love Jaime soooo much is because she is so generous and caring. I had left a comment on her Flickr about how much I loved this piece and then boom! I check the mail, and it's in my mailbox. It came yesterday actually, which was a really crappy day. It's amazing how one person's giving heart can change your whole day!!
Next, I got this cutie-pie letter and stickers from my new Canadian pen-pal, Suzanne!! Thank you Suzanne!!!

I loooove it! and I will be sending you something back very soon!
These cuties came from France:

AND this gorgeous headband came today as well:

It is soooo Whitney (from The Hills).
And to make my night even more fabulous, this is what I have been doing since I got off of work:



cutting lots and lots of squares from the new Hether Ross Far Far Away fabric :) Eeeek!!! Sooooo lovely and so soft! Here are some close ups of the different prints:

And here is the quilt that I was inspired by :) Image from Film in the Fridge:

I can not wait to get started ironing and then sewing!! I also need to go to Jackman's this weekend and see if I can get some help binding my last quilt!. I need to get it done so that I can have a finished product and not a collection of quilt tops :)
I am off to create!
I think that I may do some painting tonight too, we shall see!!
Have a lovely weekend friends.
xoxo
