Doesn't this remind you of a pumpkin? I have a friend/co-worker who I've worked with for about 10-15 years that gets out and about to fun places where she is always picking up sewing items for me. Sue has given me many little surprises over the years here are just a few.She finally found my blog a few weeks ago and went about to start her own. I haven't seen it yet.I would give you the link, but she hasn't shared that with me I think she is shy. Oh SUUUUUE where are yOUUUUUUU? Thank you! xoxmar

The only longaberger basket I own is this little one, I love how my rick-rack looks in it and keep it out to view, it was sent to me by my friend Julie in Wisconson, she is an old pal from AAQ message board days. I never got to meet her and haven't heard from her in a long time, but I think of her everytime I glance at this little basket full of color. Thank you Julie. The little wooden carry all is also from a good friend I meet on AAQ message board. At Alex's quilting retreat I was admiring it. When Vicky got ready to leave she asked me if I wanted it! She didn't want to take it back on the plane. It's small and easy to carry around to classes or sew days and sits by my machince holding extra needles, threads, cutters, lotion, you name it, even Tums!! Thank you Vicky, ILY!! The little quilted zipper bag holds all of the feet for my machine, I have to hide them from the cats, this is perfect! And guess what?? It was gift from another friend made on the AAQ message board. Gail, I love this little bag and it is always at hand. Thank you sweetie!! Now the big white basket was a great garage sale find, all of my rulers fit in there and it's nice to look at too! I collect tins and have had the big round one for about 30 years, it's one of my favorites and holds all of my buttons. The little one is a Jack Daniels tin and holds my basting pins, it was given to me by my uncle. So there you have it.
ALSO.... Another little contest, with a very generous prize! Jackie over at Canton Village Quilt Works is giving away free quilting to one lucky person. Hope I get lucky!
AND.... I've finished my pincushion for the swap, Happy Dancin in California!!

Other than that I've been working on my office at work. I've finally moved in to my final resting spot (lol sounds like a cemetery eh?) I took some before pics so that you could see what I'm dealing with. It's a mess I tell ya, one big mess. In fact the whole unit is a mess, this move involved 15 of my staff, plus myself. One more move to go at the end of June and we will all be able to settle in. I'm still not done with my office, I've moved it around some since these pics were taken and I still have about 6 boxes to unpack. Now I would like to find a nice little black stand up shelf. Maybe I'll hit some garage sales this weekend. Oh and my door, this funky door, I need some curtains for it or something. (Like my sign?) Anyway, I'm told by the facilities manager that the *&%*^ door was $7500 or so. They didn't plan to put a door on that wall because it is a load bearing wall. For some reason the architects felt that the reception supervisor's door should open up to another unit, not reception (duh) and had it on the opposite wall. Well, they had to move to the costly plan B and this is the result. Too funny, they tell me if there is an earthquake I've got the safest spot in the office :-) Tomorrow is my Friday off and I'm takin it!! I'm soooo ready for a long weekend. It's good to have that bloggy feeling again!xoxomar Post Script: Big bloggy hugs to those of you who emailed me with concern. It means so much to me that you care.
