Anvil blocks! T hanks!!!

WOW! I came home to a MASSIVE pile of envelopes! Thank you so much! I have enough for two quilts! Which I am thinking is NOT a bad idea to have on hand, as we always seem to have another reason to share a quilt with someone! THANK YOU to all who sent. I'm sure a few more will come this week. Know that I will grab enough from this batch to whip up a quilt.  Thank you for your kindness! Any extra's wil be saved for the next quilt for a cause.

I had sent out emails to the first batch of envelopes, then when I got home last night, I got a bit overwhelmed by them all and my to do list the next two weeks before I head to Sydney, AU  to teach. So I am thanking everyone else HERE. 

My Angel Helpers!!

(So far, I think  I have everyone's name here that I have rcvd from, but I do make mistakes.) 

They are beautiful blocks!!!
Will post a top pic soon!

I'm scrambling to get two deadlines done, along with running over to Mark Lipinksi's house Wednesday to host with him on Creative Mojo, get packed and organized for teaching in AU, fill out a load of paperwork, pay my (Bleh), Bills, and still unpack from yesterday's return trip from SC. blah blah blah, etc etc... I'm thinking I need a local student for one day a week to help me out, anyone have a daughter in the city, that might want one day a week, work? ( Paperwork, email/computer stuff, nothing very exciting, post office runs, all easy and just everything that I have building up printer is my filing cabinet...LOL!)
You know where to find me! email me!

And Yey...can't wait for Wed to hear you on Creative Mojo (my alarm clock is set weekly so I don't miss Mark's show) - You + Mark = A Show that CAN NOT BE MISSED!!!!
