Happy Saturday!! (Photo happy too)

Today was generally a pleasant day. The only thing that sucked was that Allen had to work most of the day. While he was out, I did some good cleaning and then got to work on Mystery 9. I finished one of the two triangles that we were given. On the second triangle, I only have to fill in with yellow and do the specialty stitches for the pretty veggies. I should be able to finish quickly tomorrow and still have time to work on my lilies:)
Here is the whole thing so you can see which triangles I am filling in this month.

And here is a close up of the triangle I finished.

The last two days have been good on the exchange front. My Spring Fling Exchange on the Exchange Place BB made it to its destination at Joanne‘s house. I made her a cute little pinkeep…my first attempt and I think it turned out well.

Then this afternoon, there was a package on the door step. I am glad I actually used the front door today, or it would have been a while before I noticed it. The mailman did not ring the bell or leave a note in the mailbox like usual. Juanita made me a beautiful pillow using fabric of my favorit color, lavender. She also included a pattern and a few small cuts of pretty colored fabric. Thanks so much, Juanita, I love it. I think that it is funny that two out of the four participants in this particular spring exchange lived within fifteen miles of each other. We could have met somewhere in the middle:)

Now off to watch another movie with my hubby!!!
