Every time I hear the name of Tupelo, Mississippi, I think that we should have a town here named Twobelow, Minnesota. Today I texted my friend in Georgia that it was "damn cold" here, and then I realized it was "only" two below. That's really not what true Minnesotans would call damn cold. But it's cold enough, I reckon.
I've been having fun playing with my new camera, but I need to learn more before I can upload to the computer. So you will have to wait to see my photographic masterpieces.
Yesterday I had a WONDERFUL mail delivery day:
1) Marjorie came home! Thank you for sending her, Amanda. We had a happy reunion.
The little tote bag is so cute, and it came with some other interesting tidbits such as news articles about the Orphan Train, a printout of Michelle's blog post after she read the book, a couple of business cards, and even some orphan blocks for starting another quilt, AND the cute bookmark you see pictured to the right. Who made it? It's adorable.
2) a block for Joanie from Sue B. Thank you!
3) 3 blocks for Joanie from Yvonne. Thank you, too!
4) the highlight was my camera! Snap, snap, snap. If I see you I will photograph you.
I now have about 4 gazillion blocks for Joanie. I'm going to start making her quilt! It'll be plenty big, and I'll probably have some leftover for a second quilt. As soon as I learn how with my new toy, I'll post pictures!
