Don't you love surprises?

I surprised my BFF Kathy yesterday and it makes my heart sing. When the Morning Star quilt top was finished (ages ago) I knew I wanted to give it was going to be for her. That was back in late winter (I think). I finally finished it and sent it off this week. It arrived yesterday. Of course, the temp in Mahopac has been just like here-high 90's and humid. And no central air. Only one as special as my girl would be so excited about receiving a quilt when it is so darn hot out!
Kathy and I have been friends for more than thirty years. We have been together through thick and thin. Remember she was the one I dragged to Alaska last year. I just wish I was not so far away from her now.

And now for another surprise (this one for me)-my air conditioning unit decided that it would give up the ghost day before yesterday. I woke up during the night and knew that there was something wrong. It was so uncomfortable in the house that the guys took to sleeping on the floor. No pillow in bed for Sir Henry. When it got light out I checked outside and the lines were iced over. The air conditioning guy came yesterday morning and added some freon but the unit has outlived it's days. The replacement will be installed tomorrow $$$$$$$$$$$$ But at least it is now comfortable in the house!

90 little blocks completed on the new swap. Need to get some red fabric.

So happy that Kathy liked her quilt! Knew she would:) OH NO! A/C fail is not good AT ALL! You are lucky to get someone out so quick. Poor Willie, Henry & Spooky, they are not used to such primitive conditions.

Ouch, that hurts no AC. Glad that Kathy liked her quilt.
