A FUN surprise in the mail AND SURPRISE ! (the BACK of the Grad Quilt is DONE too !!!!)

Yesterday when I got my mail (and this time I stopped at the bottom of the driveway in my CAR before driving up the driveway .... that way, if Mama Bear is hanging around I can jump back in the car and cower there until she decides to go on her merry way ....) ANYHOW, there was a VERY FUN and UNEXPECTED SURPRISE waiting for me in the mailbox !!! (Don't ya just LOVE getting FUN MAIL ?!?!!!)

..... it was from Sharon !! I couldn't imagine what it could be so .....

...I opened it and .....

..... found this VERY CUTE zippered pouch inside !!!

...and inside that cute zippered pouch was all this FUN STUFF !!!! AND a note from Sharon telling me that she made me this zippered pouch to replace my tacky ziploc bag sewing project tote system !! THANKS Sharon !!!! You've got my back and I appreciate that !!! Now I can hold my head up high and know that my take along sewing project is traveling in STYLE !!! (speaking of style makeovers ..... next project is my hair and clothes!! .... WAIT ..... now don't you DARE send Stacy and Clinton from "What NOT to Wear" over to my house !!! it would be WAY too embarassing!!) ... ANYHOW .... Sharon, thank you, thank you , thank you for such a very sweet surprise !!!!

OK, next on our agenda today is yet another SURPRISE ..... yes indeed .... hold onto your hats and tiaras because ......

....the Queen Bee has been fed mass quantities of chocolate and ....

...she actually FINISHED the QUILT BACK, TOO !!!! ..... and almost an entire day EARLY , we'll have you know !!! NEVER in the history of the Moonbeams in a Jar Sewing Dept has ANYTHING been completed this far in advance of the event it is being made for !!! You have all just witnessed HISTORY !!! (any don't expect it to repeat itself anytime soon!!) ..... therefore, it is with great pride that the COMPLETED quilt top and quilt back will be displayed at Matt's Graduation Party tomorrow leaving No opportunity for a snide remark about yet another IOU on a gift quilt from yours truly !!! HA ! .... so, now the plan is for all of Matt's friends and family members to sign that quilt back tomorrow at his party .... and then we'll have to light a fire under the Sewing Dept's butts to QUILT the QUILT !!!! (or maybe just a little bit more chocolate ... and a new treadmill to work it off!)

Be back soon!

Toodles,
Mary Anne (aka Mare)

Sharon's a sweetie! She always has our backs!

Congratulations on getting something done early. That happens to me every once in a while, and it shocks me and everyone else!
