- 1 yard of green fabric
- A candle that smelled of spring
- A pincushion (either home made or what could pass for home made)
- A quilting notion or toy
- A bunny (could be chocolate)
- A spool of thread
- 4 fat-quarters that reminded you of Easter eggs
- A 12.5 inch quilt block (using a basket pattern and made of pre-selected fabric)
- All of the above packed in a container of some kind.
I loved EVERYTHING in my box, but honestly, if I had gotten any of the other boxes, I would have been just as pleased. These ladies know how to "pack a box" :-)
Now what made this "party" especially fun (beside getting gifts--which I always find make me happy) was the fact that this time we also took a "road trip" to this fantastic quilt shop in Smith's Grove, KY (Whittle's). I had never been there, but I gotta tell you, I will definitely return. The prices are unbelievable and the pleasantness of the owners are something that I haven't experienced in years!!!!! Of course I definitely cut into my allocated shopping budget for AQS, but there is absolutely no way I would ever have been able to find these same prices. If you are ever near Smith's Grove, I really recommend you stop by---you will NOT regret it!!!!
After the shopping trip, we went to a great restaurant for dinner, exchanged our gifts and reminisced about all the fun we had. I am so grateful to my Yo-Yo Sisters----because I am new to this part of the country and had to leave my other sister (Diane) behind when I moved. Because of them, I find I have less "pity parties". If only Diane would move here, there would be perfection in the world (hurry up April 20---Diane is coming to visit). Unfortunately I had to go to work yesterday, but my happy memories kept me smiling all day. Our next "party" will be in July or August and I can hardly wait!
Well, gotta go get ready for the day, have a blessed Easter and thanks again for stopping by!!!
