I got presents!!

The darling little elderly lady next door is moving into an assisted living facility today. Yesterday I went over to chat with her and she gave me an awesome gift!!
She had this tucked away in her closet for who knows how many years....

It is an unfinished quilt top - Tumbling Blocks in some very interesting prints. It has a few stains but should be ok after a good soak. I am hesitant to soak it before it is finished and quilted as it might be too fragile....Unfortunately it will sit on my shelves for a while until I finish up a few other projects.

I think it will look great in the guest room, which is done in Americana/red, white & blue colors...

Dear Hubby bought a new iron just for little ole me!
He has a lovely habit of ironing his work uniforms on high heat with starch and our old iron was always a mess. I had to clean it up everytime I needed it for my quilting. Now I have one of my very own for my quilting/sewing projects.

Isn't she a beaut?! Pretty good score, if I do say so myself.

Hope you all are having a great weekend too!

If I could get Big Daddy to do his own ironing, I'd happily buy him his own iron - or two.
