Happy mail

When we arrived home last week after two weeks away, I had mail waiting for me.  Unfortunately, the post office had already closed for the day, so on Monday, I finally got to go pick up my “happy mail.”  I love when I’ve been away and come home to exciting things in my mailbox.

There was this mini quilt with three mini-mini quilts on the line.  The siding on the house is really cool because the fabric is folded to make that effect.

And do you recognize this little girl on the swing from a previous quilt block I received?  I laughed out loud when I saw her again!

Cool beadwork in the tree.  Reminds me of the cherry blossoms here in Virginia in the spring!

Next package: a little fabric bundle that I won in the Bee a {Modern} Swapper group for “most creative packaging.”  The package may or may not have had some other goodies including some Ghirardelli  chocolate which may or may not be already gone.  Ooops.  I love the grays and will be able to use them to make some more of those English paper pieced rose stars I was working on.  And the reds are a welcome addition because I have a serious lack in my fabric stash!

And hey!  Another mini!  After years of having no fabric art in my sewing space, my walls are going to be so (sew) pretty!  I love how the pink binding picks up the pink in the birdie.

There was one more, but I didn’t get a photo of that.  I won a giveaway on the Sew, Mama, Sew giveaway day from Happy in Red.  It is three really beautiful skeins of yarn and a crochet hook.  I don’t crochet, but I really want to learn.  2013 goal?  I think so.
