We got lots of goodies in the mail!

Last week, we received lots of great packages in the mail!

Many thanks to Laural; she had a few giveaways, and I won this one:

This is six--SIX!--charm packs! The fabric is Moda, the designer is Mary Engelbreit, and the line is called The Caroler. It is a Christmas fabric which just happens to blend perfectly with some other ME fabrics that I have left from this quilt. Look for something wonderful close to the end of the year!

I also received this--super quick--from the folks at Hawthorne Threads. I'd heard other quilting bloggers talk about how fast Charlie and Lindsay are, but my goodness! They must have been just waiting for my order, and when they got it (probably at midnight or something), they cut it immediately and personally flew it out to me!

In typical Laurel style, I fell in love with these two fabric lines once they went out of production. Fortunately, they are not too difficult to find yet (unlike, say, Flea Market Fancy). The top is Anna Maria Horner's Garden Party line. The bottom two fabrics are part of a (costly) Japanese import line by designer Etsuko Furuya, called Echino Spring 2009. These prints reminded me of Aslan; I just had to have some! You'll be seeing the Garden Party fabrics very very soon; I need to acquire some more fabrics before I do anything with the lion fabric.

We also received these skeins of yarn:

Hershnerrs was having an unbelievable sale on this yarn. It is Moda Dea, and the yarn is called Sassy Stripes. It is sock yarn, and it typically costs several times more than what they were selling it for. Since DD1 is a knitting fiend, this was a logical purchase. She immediately snatched it up and hurried away to her room with it; I had to request it back just to get this photo. I think that means she likes it. :)


  1. Love the new blog look! And the yarn looks amazing. Need to fix up my crafty blog...so much more fun than dissertation writing.
