Canada’s mail service sucks. I often think we are a first world country with a third world mail service. Well maybe it isn’t that bad, but it definitely is not very fast. I’ve been waiting and waiting for some parcels – well the last two Fridays many of them have come. I think I’ll post my Goodie Swap beauties separately but here are the other riches that I’ve received.
From Karen some more vehicle pieces for my grandson’s quilt.
Patty sent me these lovely home dyed fat quarters. I think they were a thank you because I sent her novelty fabrics for the I Spy quilts she was making – but then there may have been a contest involved too. I can’t quite remember.
I was so fortunate to get in on some scraps that Flaming Nora was getting rid of. Nora (I suspect that isn’t her real name) works in the theatre or something akin to that and has lots of bits of exotic materials overwhelming her. I love the little bag I got and am dreaming up things to do with it.
I have received three of my October swap blocks and the month isn’t even over!
From Fiona, my Christmas block – such a beauty…
From Kathy, two Adventure blocks, because the darker one was a bit small. Both of them are gorgeous!
From Anette in Denmark, two lovely hexies….
And last, but not least, I won this great book from Kathy Mack at Pink Chalk Fabrics. It just arrived on Friday and I haven’t had a chance to peruse it yet, but doesn’t the cover look interesting!
Should I be embarrassed???
