A Good Day At the Mailbox

I was so excited to open the mail today that I wanted to share the goods with you.

I received a couple blocks from my quilting bee partners.

August was my month and I requested string blocks from my partners using an assortment of Belle fabrics I’ve been saving for a Fall quilt. Aren’t they beautiful?

I recently won a gift certificate from Sherri to spend at Jackie’s shop! Woohoo, thank you, Sherri! Here’s what I used the gift certificate for:

New quilting magazines and Patricia Bravo’s Sugar fabric collection! Check out a close-up shot of these gorgeous fabrics!

I also found a surprise package from my friend Paula, a lil something she sent my way to congratulate me on taking “the plunge.”

Thank you, Paula, for thinking of me! I found so many clever and fun lunch bag ideas in this book.

My favorite is the bag to fit on the handle bars of your bike!

Quilting blocks from friends, fabric and magazines won from a friend, and a fun new book from a friend = a triple happy day at my house!
