Andrea and the Cathedral - and my son!

I'm adding this a few hours after I wrote the below stuff. I can't believe I forgot to mention my favorite son! Today is his birthday! He is 22 years old. He is such a wonderful young man. I am terribly proud of him. Isn't he cute? Here he is last spring with my other favorite guy: my hubby. They are both adorable. [gush, gush]

Andrea H-M sent some gorgeous red/white blocks. They arrived today, one day after I chose a winner's name. Oh, I'm so sorry Andrea's name didn't get included in the drawing. Aren't her blocks wonderful???

Andrea, I am going to send you a home-made checkbook cover. I think you told me that you were sending blocks, and then I forgot. I could have waited another day. So you're getting a small version of the prize I sent out.

Today at work I happened upon this view of the St. Paul Cathedral. I used to take a lot of pictures of the cathedral back when I was posting a photo a day of St. Paul. I always loved finding unusal views of the cathedral. This one would have qualified.

no work-out today - but I walked up 4 flights of stairs again

I loe Andrea's blocks. I think they've got to be some of the best yet. I also love that strippy block in the last post.

Have got another 2 quilts to make up and Finn is making another too.

Andrea's blocks are adorable...and you are so kind to send her a gift out of the goodness of your heart!

Those sons...they are pretty special, aren't they!

I would bet that St. Paul is full of lovely scenes, everywhere you turn.

Keep up the great work for a healthier you! ;-)

For your kindness, I've just given you the "Cupcake Award" over on my blog. Truly very sweet of you!

Thank you! Thank you!
