More Cheese!!

I was ushered into my 48th year
last weekend,
and was so surprised when I received a box in the mail
from my friend, Karen!  (Hi Karen!)


She sent me a STUNNING Longaberger!
It completely matches my new sectional!  And I was giddy!

And then....

I lifted the lid.

OMGosh she sent me a ridiculously large number of little bow tie blocks!

All the while Karen was using these as her Leader/Ender project
and in typical "Hi I'm Karen And I'm An Overachiever" fashion,
she made too many!
And gifted the overflow to me!

I'm so blessed to have friends like Karen!
Looks like there will be more cheese in my future!
Can't wait to sew these together!

Thank you, Karen, for your friendship...
and for the cheese!

I'm glad you are enjoying your little gift! Hope you have as much fun sewing the bowties together as I did making them! Miss you!

Happy Belated B-day Kim - sorry I missed your big day. Love the cheddar blocks hiding in a Longaberger basket - perfect surprise for you. Whatcha knitting lately? I'm furiously working on CL 3 - hoping I finish 800 yards by the 31st - Enjoy the weekend - Mel
