Patriotic Swap

Well, I finally did it! I entered into a swap, and I'm so glad I did. It was a patriotic ornament swap hosted by the wonderfully talented Vivian of http://vivs-whimsy.blogspot.com/.

Look at all the cute goodies I received in the mail last week!

 (I forgot to get a picture of the tags I made.)

 Thank you to all who participated. I haven't had time to display them around the house, but I will be decorating for the 4th soon. (Better be soon, it's fast approaching!) We are going to have a family cookout, and Tad will be coming! Yeah!

 I wanted to say thank you to all who sent congrats for the baby. It really means a lot to me to read those comments and know there are people out there that are becoming my friends, even though we might never meet in person.

Since we took it easy yesterday, going to a movie (Super 8) and hanging out in the pool, I better get back to some chores. Laundry, bill paying, menu planning and shopping. Then after dinner I can feel good about sitting down to do some hand quilting on a little quilt I just put together.
Bye for now!
