Fun in the mail

Today I received some wonderful items in the mail from my wonderful friend Linda. She is truly so incredibly generous, I am the luckiest girl to have a friend like her. Thank you so much Linda - I really appreciate and love each and every item.

I received the fabrics you see above, I haven't had a good look at them all yet, but they're wonderful reproductions, and some of them I think are Jo Morton fabrics. Linda knows my taste inside and out, and knows I'll love these to pieces.

Also sent are some wonderful magazines. I've never seen Quilt Sampler on sale here, and it's one of my favourite magazines, so Linda always gets an extra copy for me. Also, some issues of Fons and Porters magazine, which I love too. I'm looking forward to settling down and reading thru them all. I had seen the Quilt Sampler on some of your blogs already and was hoping I'd be able to get a copy sometime. It looks scrummy :-)

Last of all today, I have been sewing away with my box of 2.5" squares, and I was looking for a change of pace from the blocks I've been working on (which are almost done now) and thought I'd put together another sewing machine mat for my Etsy store. This is a fun one, and you'll recognise some of the fabrics from recent projects.

In my last post I mentioned my change of hairstyle, and many of you definitely want to see pictures ... let me work up the courage girls, I really dislike having my picture taken. I know it's silly ... but seriously ... I'll work up the courage ... I hope :-)

I think we all hate having our picture taken. Much more fun to snap pictures of quilts and inspirations for quilts. LOL But, we would love to see the new hairstyle.
