Thanks, a letter, and misc.

Thank you all so much for the great bloggy welcome. You have given me enough confidence to keep up with this. LOL Bren, you are a sweetheart. Thank you for sending people my way. See, I can't figure out how to make clickable names. Oh well, I am sure everyone knows who I am talking about. LOL

I received this letter in the mail Friday. It was addressed to Grandma T.... and had our grandson, Ashton as the return address. So, somewhat puzzled, I opened it up. Oh my, the tears started flowing....
In case you can't read it all because of my poor photography skills, it says I LOVE YOU GRANDMA ASHTON. Is that not the sweetest thing? Ashton is 5 and in Kindergarten. Our daughter said his homework was to write a letter to someone. He wrote it, put it in the envelope, stamped it, and walked it to the mailbox. I will keep it for ever. Love you so much, Ashton.

See what I have been doing this weekend.
Jungs is my favorite. We have always had good luck with their stuff. I am getting garden fever. LOL Anyway else excited about getting into the garden?
Here is a picture of the fabric I got on clearance at Wal-Mart Friday. I bought 28 yards for right at $30. No earthshaking fabrics here, but I'll use them in something.
Look at this panel. I didn't really look at it till I got home. I wish I had bought more. It is so pretty. I am thinking it will make a lovely tablecloth or wallhanging. It is much more vibrant that the picture shows.
Well I had planned to post pictures of Ashton's Christmas quilt, but I think I will wait till tomorrow. I made a crockpot of chili today and it is calling my name. LOL
Everyone have a wonderful evening.

Wow, you got a great deal on that fabric, Winona! I do especially like the fabric with the birds on it... very pretty. How sweet that your grandson wrote you a letter. I'll bet it made your day! Children are so precious!

Garden catalogs already?? Mine don't usually show up until February. I love spending a cold winters day looking at seed books and dreaming about my garden. Of course my dream garden has no weeds or insects! LOL!
I have a grandchild the same age as yours. They are so sweet!

Awwww, Ashton's letter is so sweet!
I am terrible at a garden...ask Niki, she saw mine in person!
I LOVE the panel you got. It is beautiful. It would make a beautiful table cloth! Great deal on those fabrics! Sorry you are loosing your fabric store. Is there a Joann's near you?

Winona, I don't know how to work some of the things here at blogger either, maybe we can learn together. As far as the quilting you are about 2 years ahead of me!! I love the fabric, and the panel how pretty. I know what you mean about the pictures not doing the fabric justice. I take many pictures of what I think are fabrics that are so pretty and when I go to post them they don't look the same.
We have a Walmart that so far has kept it's fabric department and I hope they continue.. I love their $2 a yard seasonal fabrics..
Oh and I think Bren is a wonderful lady too, she has been such a good friend to me so far and always answers my dumb questions about blogging and quilting...
