Home Again, Home Again, Jiggity Jig

Niles is home...Niles is home!!!
*thanks pictures!!
He arrived after I had already gone back to the office after lunch so Ed brought him down so we could open the box and welcome him home together.

Oh my goodness....We opened the box and the surprises just kept coming out...they just kept coming and coming!!! Niles and Nancy must have been very busy working at UFO busting and WTIL is blessed to be the beneficiary! Seven waaaay awesome tops and 4 kits! I can't wait to see these done up into quilts. The colors are wonderful, the patterns are wonderful, the kids will be the winners with these fun quilts!

Niles also arrived back home in much better shape than he arrived at Nancy's. You see, Niles' trip to visit with Nancy was his first time away from home traveling alone and he had a bit of a "breakdown" in route to Nancy's, which made us all sad...we were all very worried about him, but that Nancy, she is the bestest of the bestest. She "fixed" Niles up and he is as good as NEW again. Thank you Nancy, you went over and above the call of duty on this one! If you ever decide to change careers, Niles told us he will give you a great reference, he says they are always looking for caring people like you at the Gnome Camp.

Now here is the over and above...Niles arrived home in his own little traveling treasure chest, which totally appears to be made just for him! Perfect in size, perfect in shape....A treasure chest just for Niles! Thank you Nancy, Niles loves his little treasure chest and is thrilled with having been given this wonderful gift which proves once again your caring heart! He was also thrilled to present me with some wonderful FQ's, he says he wants a quilt to line his treasure chest made out of them so he will always remember your kindness and the bonus is, green is Niles most favorite color...imagine that!

What's up next for Niles? Well, it is family vacation time....a trip to southern California to Mickey's house...a friends daughters High School graduation...a trip into Mexico...time with our son...

After that he has a stint on the farm...summer is here and my niece and her hubby will need an extra hand in the fields.

A couple of people have asked if Niles can visit with their families and OF COURSE he can! I am currently working out a schedule for him through the end of the year, so if you would like to be included, please email me!

I love the idea of his own quilt to keep him snug in his new traveling chest....

Tell Niles he better enjoy his time off...once he gets to the farm, there will be no more of that! We have plenty of handline and wheelines for him to change- as well as tractor driving, garlic picking, and combining! Be sure to find "T-I-double G-er" for us and say hi and get some hugs! Absitively, Posolutely, Spendiferous!

a little quilt to pad him on his travels would be most welcome since he now knows what this quilting stuff is all about. The fabric collecting and culling,oh'ing and ah'ing over Nancy's tops must have got that idea started!

He is going to be one busy gnome if he is helping Mandy and Wayne at the farm.

SOOOOO glad to see Niles made it home okay! Especially since I forgot to pack his journal and the slip of paper with your address in the box just in case it got busted open. And as full as it was packed that was a definate possibility! I'll get the journal in the mail this week.

I knew when I saw the little chest it would be just perfect for Niles. I had planned to bubble wrap him real good but decided if I wrapped him in quilt tops instead I could get a few more in the box.

Can't wait to hear about Niles further adventures but be sure to tell him to write as he's already missed at my house. :-)

Agatha, Fluffy, Charlie, Sam, and George say to tell Niles "Hi".
