This paper-pieced hexagon Christmas Flower went to New York City for Victoria in the
One Block Over Bee. She sent the reds and we added greens from our own stashes.
Lynette in Wisconsin gets this March themed house in the Calendar of Houses Bee.I like to add a little selvage to the blocks.
I didn't actually mail this one, but thought I'd show it anyway. Angela gave us blue and cream fabrics and asked for a six inch wonky star. I was happy to oblige! Angela and I are part of the MQG Kansas City Scrappy Bee. I'll be seeing her soon, I hope.
My mailbox has been full with some fun stuff lately too!
I came across some Katie Jump Rope fabrics and decided to treat myself. You may have noticed that I've already used a couple of them in the Bee blocks above.
These other items are very special, as well!
The Sherbet Pips charm pack contains some of the cutest fabric I've seen. I keep thumbing through the squares, picking out my favorites and dreaming up ways to use the fabric once it becomes available in April.
Do you know what this book is?
It's the Blogt2Print copy of the 2010 Lollyquiltz posts that my husband gave to me for my birthday! Wasn't that nice of him to
let me order it! If you haven't seen one of these "diaries" yet, I'll just tell you that it is a fun treat! You can choose your own cover color and design, as well as pictures for the front and back. My dedication reads,
"To Megan for talking me into starting a blog....and to all of the lovely, invisible and visible quilty friends I've gained because of it!"
(Megan is my lovely daughter.)
This last jewel that arrived in the mail two days ago, is my favorite! You can get a glimpse of who sent it to me on the card packed in the shipping box. I'll tell you all about it tomorrow since this post has gotten a little long already. I'm saving the best for last!
