That's been my day today.
First of all, I drove out to Clearwater to visit my old college and meet up with a former teacher of mine. This fall I'm going to be teaching an introductory drawing class to high school students in our homeschool co-op, and I wanted to talk with my drawing professor to make sure I was planning the year out right. It was so weird to be traipsing about my old school after nearly 12 years, with three kids in tow. But at the same time it was pretty cool and really made me miss my studio art days. My teacher Mr. Grass was the best teacher I ever had and he was so helpful to me. He even gave me some props from the art department to use in my class. And he played with my kids and showed them all the skeletons and skulls and animal bones so they had a blast. When we left my oldest said, "Wow, I can't wait to go to college so I can learn about science and art." A boy after my own heart. Ha.
Then I got home and guess what was in my mailbox? Yep! My doll quilt!
I think I displayed quite amazing self-control by NOT ripping right into the package before taking pictures.
Check out all this loot!! Oh my gosh. I got TWO quilts. TWO! And a pretty little comp-book cover that I adore. I literally jumped up and down when I opened my package.
This little quilt was at the top of my list of ones I wanted, and I especially love the little pointy border because it's so unusual. And you know me and gray and bright colors....yum.
And the bonus quiltie is every bit as awesome! Heather Ross, wonky geese, green and orange and pink...AWESOME.
While my partner Anna was stalking me she found out I was a fellow Christian and decided to make me this book cover with crosses on it. It's so adorable. I feel so blessed and lucky to have received such a lovely and generous package!
Lastly I leave you with a picture of my growing collection:
