A Sweet SURPRISE !!!!!

Oh, wait ..... THIS isn't the sweet surprise ..... this is just the aftermath of my Easter sugar high and the immediate CRASH that follows ......


.......but at least I try and have a little bit of self restraint (unlike SOME people I know .....)

....(pssst ....Kitty .... you have chocolate on your face .....) She's gonna hate herself in the morning ....






ANYWAY, there we were, Kitty and I , sitting around trying to recover from the sugar high/crash when in walks Kid #1 with the mail ....
......bills, junk mail, bills ...... nothing fun here .....









.......ooohhhh look, this is fun ...
the June issue of McCall's Quilting......









.......ooohhhh, and look ....
here's the latest issue (Issue #7) of "Fresh Vintage" that I ordered from Fig Tree Quilts ...... and that's fun, too..... but it's not the SWEET SURPRISE .......


......THIS IS !!!!
......what is it, you ask?.......












....it's this CUTE bag made by and sent by Lisa !!! ....just because she's so nice !!!














...and look what was inside!!!

.... FABRIC !!!! 4 different flavors of pretty Hawaiian FABRIC !!!!!!! It was the perfect pick - me - up for my sugar crash/low !! THANKS Lisa for the very SWEET SURPRISE !!!!


(oh, and now I'd better go pour "Kitty" into a cab .... she really overdid it and is in no condition to drive ......)

Toodles,
Mary Anne (aka Mare)
