Squishy Mail - Argh!

I've been in what I'm calling "roster reconciliation hell" this week. I won't bore you with the details, but it has required long hours on the computer for three days this week. I turned everything in this morning.  Yay!

In the midst of all this yesterday afternoon, the mailman brought such a nice surprise.

A gift from my friend Stephanie. She posted this Pirate Girls fabric on her blog recently and I commented on how adorable it is. Below is a photo of one repeat.

So she picked me up a fat quarter of it along with a couple of companion prints and a cute little zipper pull to match. I'm feelin' the need to make a bag with this little bundle. Thank you Stephanie!!!

I also have gotten that pen I told you about yesterday to work again. I'm about halfway done with marking the remaining part of the quilt. I can only tolerate doing a little at a time but don't want to take to long in case the pen decides to quit cooperating again. Hopefully by the end of the day I'll have it done and can get back to the fun part - the quilting.

Nothing I tried yesterday with the pen was successful. So I just put it down and went to work. This morning when I tried it I didn't press down very hard and tried to keep the pen as vertical as possible. And it is working again. Go figure!

Oh, lucky you!!! I love that fabric, especially the gray one on the bottom. Cute zipper pull too! Stephanie is a special person and a great friend.

I'm so glad you like the fabrics! I know you'll do something adorable with them!

That's so weird about that pen. I wonder what the deal is!
