Secret Pal Gift, & Machine Quilting Frame

I had a lovely surprize in my mailbox today from my DJ secret pal. I also look forward to my little gifties from her. Inside the package was a hot pepper pin cushion, a deck of travelors playing cards, 2 I'd rather be quilting note pads, a cute shamrock with an Irish saying, a scissors leash which I didn't have but needed as I am always losing my scissors, and a baggies of 2" squares which I love, as my favorite quilts are scrap quilts, and the more different fabric I can use the prettier they turn out.

I can't believe it but I ordered my machine quilting frame today. I have been wanting one for a few years, and finally took the plunge today. I feel so guilty about spending the money, but DH convinced me that I deserved it, and that I should order it while I had the chance. I am so excited, I can't wait for it to get here. I am very busy cleaning out my sewing room to put it in. It sure is going to take up a lot of space.

Tomorrow is Friday the 13Th, and I feel a little apprehensive about it as usual since losing a couple close relatives on Friday the 13Th, but I keep telling myself that it is no different than if it were to happen on say Monday the 12Th, it is just that the date keeps me thinking the worst. Well, it's about bed time, and one of my favorite shows is about to start so gotta go.
