Loving the Mailman~

This title is alittle tongue in cheek this morning as DH is a retired mail carrier!! The mail this past week has been fun and surprising. First I ordered three new books from Amazon and they arrived. My favorites of the three are the Fabric Embellishing book and layered, tattered, & stitched book. I love both of them and can't wait to spend time playing!! The Sweater Surgery book looks good too, just have not had as much time with it as I would like and I do have several sweaters that I can't wait to use.

The surprise in the mail was a wonderful package from Lesley in UK! She is a friend from the CQ4N yahoo group. I had no idea that she was sending me anything and all of it in pink! So much fun in one package! I am looking forward to playing with each and every thing that she sent me. Thanks Les for being so kind!!!
Here is my black and white block for CQI for the FFT RR. It will be starting soon so I figured I would get ahead for a change and have it pieced. I also used it for the challenge block for Jan which was fans and curves.Here is a thread that Lesley sent in her package that I love the look of and an anxious to try out. I have never seen this before and guess that it is from the UK. It will be a great addition to my  black and white blocks. Nothing like finding goodies in the mail box is there??


  1. What great things you found in the mail?? Those books looking interesting. I'll have to check them out!! Enjoy your pinks!!

  2. Your book titled Fabric Embellishing looks like fun. How nice of your friend to send you all those beautiful trims and the floss will look beautiful on your black & while block. Can't wait to see it.


Glad you stopped by! Talk to me!!
