So it’s Tuesday; however I had an awesome Happy Mail Monday when I got home from my ‘real job’ last night. THREE PACKAGES!?! That’s triple the happiness!
First and foremost, my order from Connecting Threads. A few weeks ago I won a giveaway from Diary of a Quilter with Amy Smart, it was a gift card to Connecting Threads and wouldn’t you know it… I WON! Ok, I have my top list of quilters I admire; however Amy will forever hold a spot with me as she was my very first quilt blog I began reading avidly. Anyhow, with not only it being a giveaway from her awesome blog it was also from my newest favorite place to get all of my thread! They sell other stuff which I have ordered as well, but they are by far my #1 go-to place for thread if it isn’t needed like, yesterday. It took me a little over a week to finally decide what to best utilize my gift card on. This was the ending items that made the cut.
Who could resist this cutie!? I know I couldn’t! Once I saw it, I knew I had to have it. I loved where I put my bobbins, but no matter how neat I did the thread, they still always ended up coming undone. This has now resolved my issue while being cute (which it had me at GREEN anyway). What I love is that I can keep stacking additional ones on there and my goal is to have the leaning tower of bobbins. Challenge accepted.
Onto more great happy mail! I received my Fat Quarter Shop order of the MODA Modern Building Blocks card. Yay! I will be starting this and another (doing 2 at the same time) in January 2015! Stay tuned!
Then a few weeks ago Fabric Fly advertised on Instagram a sale on some Fat Quarters (or close to size) and it was all random, you just stated how many you wanted. I went for 15.
These are my favorites from the pile, the ones that I will have to find something worthy to make something with. The others are great for random or scrap projects.
|I will not be able to ever cut this up and will use it in a project in its entirety. ;o)|
|The deep coral (not red as it appears) and great text print… oh and those pin wheels!|
|Talk about feeling rich with gold.|
Has anyone else received some awesome happy mail? What did you get? I feel like I am on a whole different taste of style than so many others! Ah! I am beginning to own that word ‘fabric hoarder’. So many prints that I never seem to want others to have… but I can’t have everything (or that is at least what the adult in me keeps saying).
