Mr. Postman....I think I love you!....a tiny Yester-year finish

I know it is exceptionally pathetic of me to be so excited when I get packages in the mail.  Despite all of the wonderful things to do in my town, I spend most of my time inside my own four walls.  Yes, I am that dull.

Yesterday I received my prize from the Little Quilt - Sew, Vote, Swap swap on Flickr. 
Bet you want to know what is in that package don't you!

Fresh out of the envelope....some yummy charms, a lovely note, and a granny square quilt...

Ironed...and made presentable. I love it!

The back is just as pretty as the front.
Thank you Deb!

This is the quilt I sent.  I made it from my scrap bin and used it as a learning tool for my 16 year old son.  He wanted to learn how to use my long arm.  He did a great job quilting it for me.  I was hoping that he would consider helping me get through the pile of quilts I have waiting....Halo seems more appealing to him.  (Surprise.)

I've been cleaning out lately...or trying too.  I started a tiny quilt made from foundation pieced sailboats and lighthouses in 1995.  It was for my 16 year old's nursery....It was decorated in lighthouses and red, white, and blue.  I didn't know that he was going to be a boy...I hoped that he might be a she, in which case I was going to add some touches of lace.  Never happened!  Anyway, I finished the mini some time last year.  When I was cleaning out I found one lone block, two hours work from being finished.  Last night I turned it into a tiny pincushion.  Doesn't it look cute with the kitty?!

Ta-ta-for-now.  Hope your day is smooth sailing.

Love the bright quilt you sent, my kind of colours! And your son helped with the quilting - that's so cool. The granny square quilt is very pretty; that block is on my "some day" list! Lovely pin cushion too!
