I have been away visiting my brother and sister-in-law in Seattle and a quick stop to see a friend on Salt Spring Island. More about the trip in another post. Today I want to tell you about the fabulous mail waiting for me on my return.
First up this lovely postcard received from Lin in the Christmas postcard swap organized by Sheila. I think it is done with Shiva paintsticks but it may be some kind of foil… I’m waiting for Lin to let me know the details.
Then I received my paper piecing blocks for November/December from Michell. She is also in the Inchy Hexagon Flower Swap that I participate in. Despite a big move, Michell is further ahead than me as I don’t have her blocks for this swap made yet.
A couple of weeks ago there was a blog tour for the 10th edition of Quiltmaker’s 100 Blocks and I WON!! My copy from Rochelle has arrived. This is so exciting as I love this magazine, I have always entered the giveaways on the blog tours and this is the first time I have one a copy.
And then to top it all off, icing on the cake if you will… Carol at Sew Sisters Quilt Shop sent me a lovely thank-you gift for participating in their Canadian blog hop. These fabrics are from Moonshine by Tula Pink for Free Spirit, which is the line that I chose from the Sew Sisters Shop as a give away on the blog hop.
And included was a gift from Aurifil which was a sponsor in the blog hop. I love these threads!
So I have reasons to like Canada Post today. How about you? Have you received anything fun lately?
