Fabulous Finds ~ My New Quilt & Yarn Gadget!

What a wonderful Wednesday!

I have 2 fabulous new finds to show you that just arrived!

R-Chee & I are enjoyning them and could not wait to share them with you!

The 1st one is our new Gladdy Paddy Mini Quilt!

Linda and her pug, Gladys, create the most wonderful quilts in all colors and sizes!

The backs are as cute as the fronts and so it is like getting two quilts in one!

We had another one of her Gladdy Paddys on our favorite crochet chair, but recently moved that one to the new desk & chair we found at our neighbors' garage sale. ;)

I was so excited to go right over to The Lindy Lou 4U shop and pick out another one!

I flipped when I saw this orange & grey circle design!

I bought it immediately and did not have to wait long for it to arrive!

Linda and Gladys provide the best service as well as art in every transaction!

Isn't it just perfect?! ;)

...and speaking of our new little desk and chair, here it is with our other Gladdy Paddy and new yarn swift we got at

I love the tabletop design!

I have always wanted a yarn swift to help me ball up the yarn hanks that need help to open & unwind before turning into a center pull ball. 

Before I found this, I have only seen the type that hang down from above and take up more room than I have in my craft room.

Now I can save Fred's arms & space by using my new sturdy table top yarn swift day or night! ;)

How FUN that I get to enjoy both my Gladdy Paddy and my new yarn swift on my new little wooden desk & chair.

I think they were made for each other!

What FUN finds have you made this Summer?

Please leave me a note and let us know!

R-Chee & I cannot wait to hear all about them!
