What a Fun Surprise :)

 I got this fun package in the mail today from Gail from the blog Shedding the Wolf.  She had a giveaway during the Holiday Lane Pillow blog hop and I was lucky enough to win it!  Measuring cups shaped like nesting dolls..."Matroyshkas Made to Measure", lol!  She also put in some candy cane kisses my son immediately stole and some pretty fabric pieces...thanks so much Gail!!!
 I had commented to her that I thought my Grumpy Man nesting doll would dig a playmate...he looks out of his league though, doesn't he?
I got him when we went to Disney World when I was a little girl (umm...a "few" years ago)....no Disney princess souvenirs for me, not when there were grumpy old men for the taking!!

I have started to border my Hello Sun blocks...I am using the suggested layout that April gave us with star points.  I am using 6 1/2" x 3/12" rectangles and 3 1/2" x 3 1/2" squares though, not sure if that's what she meant in her instructions, I emailed her but haven't heard back yet.  The way I'm doing it yields a 12 1/2" (12" finished) square.

You got to love those nesting dolls, they have so much character. Love the sun/star block.

They are an adorable couple -- the little man with the big personality, and his sweet-natured big wife. I'm glad she arrived safely!
