|Charms received from Laura|
When I wrote my catching up posts last weekend, I had the tickling thought in the back of my mind that there should be more of these fun little envelopes floating around my house, but I didn't take the time to go back and look. Well, today when I went through the mail, I rediscovered some of these great little pick-me-ups that have brightened my days over the past few weeks. All of these items had been opened, then left with the mail and shoved in the basket in an effort to tidy up. We won't make any judgments about how effective my tiding up might have been.
So, there was this delightful package (photo above) from Laura which included some truly yummy fabric charms.

Then there was this package from Judy. I love the flowers. You can always use flower prints in a quilt. Very nice.
|Charm squares from Lynn|
Lynn sent this great package of really fun prints. Such an interesting mix. These will be fun to add to my quilt.
|Charm square package from Bev|
Bev's package included some of my all-time favorites, including some Bliss prints. These will make great additions to my quilt(s).
Earlier this week, I received my third postcard from the Fabric Postcard Swap.

I mentioned above that BD#1 had been cheering me up with fun packages. I received two great books in late January that I've been poring over in my spare moments. I have even made a project from one of the books already. Today, I received this
in the mail all the way from Australia. BD#1 traded a layer cake she had for this one because she knew I liked it. It is always so much fun to get international packages. They seem so exotic somehow. Anyway, I think that this will be the fabric for my Single Girl quilt. I think it will be perfect. I'm getting excited!
So now, I THINK I am all caught up. Maybe.
