"The Thelma Flower Bouquet" . . .

This is what showed up on my doorstep this week . . .

from my favorite daughter for Mothers Day.

Surely that arrangement is called the "The Thelma Bouquet" because it could not be more me, pink orchids in a pink polka dot mug.

The arrangement came with instructions on how to get the orchids to bloom every 45 days! I just plan to enjoy the blooms as long as they last then be happy I have a pretty pink mug to drink my morning coffee out of.

Happy Mothers Day to my Mom, and all the other Moms out there, I hope your family spoils you rotten today, and if they don't, just spoil yourself, you earn this day.

As you're reading this, I'm on vacation, it's starting with a little 13.1 mile run in Indy, with a stop over in Salt Lake City for some classes and quilt market and ending perfectly, a weekend with my west coast daughter. I'm eager to meet the new granddog Tucker and plan to stop in a few quilt shops all along the way.

Doesn't that just sound like the perfect week? I'm also hoping to find Spring, since it refuses to come visit me.

So no blogging the rest of this week but I'll have plenty to share next week, be sure to stop back by. Plus I'll have a giveaway, what, I don't know, but it will be from Kaari Meng's store, The French General, in Los Angeles, another planned stop on my itinerary.

I hope you have a perfect week too!!

  18. Hi Thelma! So your coming to SLC for Market, I hope you really enjoy your time here. I know there are some cupcake shops around there but not sure which ones, we can't have them, LOL. Just a heads up, it snowed over 13" in the mountains just east of us last night and the wind is blowing in from the north...very cold and even though it is supposed to warm up to the high 60's this weekend, you might want to bring a couple of warm outfits...just is case. Enjoy your classes and have fun while your here. Hugs...

  22. Thelma - Are you taking a Miss Rosie class? I had signed up and was suppose to go on a business trip so had to cancel my class. I could have actually met you! I'm so jealous you get to go to quilt market. I went last time it was in SLC and it was so fun. Have a great time. Wish I could have run into you.
