I get a LOT of great mail. So much so, that my family despises when I get a package in the mail. I don't let it get me down, though. :)
I am (very) behind in thanking the wonderful ladies that sent me goodies, so here goes:
I won a give away awhile back on Glenna's
blog. She let me choose one of her patterns, and I loved this one because I can make quilts for both my boys and my girl. It's two patterns in one. Thanks Glenna!Carolyn
sent me a package of fabric months ago. Here is just a portion of it. She is my all time most generous fabric supplier. EVER. Thanks dude. ;)
Today at the Post Office I picked up this fabulous package from Frieda
. It's a thank you for doing the quilt along. Look at all those delicious fabrics....
and this super sweet pin cushion. Thanks so much Frieda! I love it all.Katherine
sent me a package for my birthday....wonderful vintage fabric....
and this cute embroidered zip pouch, which happens to match my needlebook
. It will become my little portable sewing caddy for when I am hand stitching the binding on my quilts. Katherine, it's a joy to use such beautiful and well made gifts from you.
Here is a wonderful assortment of vintage sheets from Lina
as a thank you for helping her with some quilting questions. Lina, you've got great taste and thanks for sharing with me!Erin
sent me this adorable moleskin just for sending her some vintage sheet scraps. I have got to be one of her biggest fans. I love everything she makes. The moleskin is almost too nice to use...but I did (aren't you proud of me?) start filling it with ideas. I love it, Erin. Thank you.Beth
and I did a swap a few weeks ago. She sent me a lot of fabulous scraps, including a bunch of pre-cut triangles (!!!) and I sent her some red fabric. Thanks Beth, for such a fun assortment of fabrics.
And last but not least, Jodie
sent me this adorable little bird cage for her retrospective give away. It cost a pretty penny to send the little package, but I appreciate it so much. My kids asked if they could have it and I politely declined. Thanks Jodie!
Thanks so much, to each and every one of you very kind and generous ladies!
Now, on to the rest of the reason I am so happy today. My daughter (2 yrs and 4 months) started potty training on her own this week! After almost 8 years of constant diapering in this house (and 2 in diapers at one time for about a year of that) we are seeing the end!!!! YIPEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!There's been a lot of yelling and carrying on (in the best possible way) when she is successful. Good times. Good times.
So in honor of all the good mail and all the potty training excitement I'd like to give away a bundle of fabric. Between my new purchases
and my generous friends, I have plenty to share. Leave me a comment stating your favorite color or color combination and I'll put your name in a virtual hat. I'll draw a name on Saturday. And thanks so much for reading my little blog. I appreciate it sooooooooo much.
