Well, on the quilting front, I have to confess that I haven't got much to share. I do have a small project that I am working on, but I'm going to share that on Sunday. I'm joining in with Kim over at Kim's Big Quilting Adventure with her Scrap Basket Sundays--it was perfect timing as I was just starting in on making some projects from my scrap basket. Otherwise I have bits and pieces of different projects going, but not underway enough to share. I also want to get started on the sashing for the Blogger Girl's BOM, but haven't managed that yet, either.
Saturday around noon, I went and got the mail. We had a visitor arrive!
This is Flat Kiley and she is visiting from South Dakota.
Are familiar with the book, Flat Stanley? It is a children's book written about 30 years ago. It tells the story of Stanley, a boy who is flattened when a bulletin board falls on him (if I remember the details correctly.) Since he is flat, he can be mailed to California to visit relatives. When he returns home, he is able to foil an art thief ring by dressing up and standing in an empty picture frame in the museum. He is sad, though, to be flat and his brother re-inflates him with a bicycle pump. This book has launched many school projects with different "Flats" getting sent to relatives or friends in different parts of the country/world. We last had a Flat visit us in Alaska, and it was great fun.
Saturday was a gorgeous day, so in the afternoon we took Flat Kiley out for her first adventure (the requirement is just to do a write-up of where the Flat visited, but we have lots of fun and do creative adventures, etc.) Anyway, when we were out, we ran into a teacher from Oklahoma who was taking her class's Flats on the same adventure!
You may see Flat Kiley on the blog once in a while. Hey, my life is not that full at the moment. I think Kiley will be helping me organize paperwork later but I suspect that she will be terrified by the shredder, ha ha.
The weather may have been gorgeous on Saturday, but it snowed on Sunday and rained all of yesterday. I'm so ready for spring!
I planned to spend the rainy day yesterday up in my quilting room sewing, but I had recorded the first season of "Call the Midwife" on PBS Sunday, and I only meant to watch one of them yesterday and I ended up watching it all! Wow! I had previously not been interested in the series, but there has been so little that I like on tv lately that I decided to try it. Wow! I fell in love. By the time I watched them all I was a bit of an emotional wreck, but in a good way!
Hopefully I shall get some stitching done today. Have a great day!
