Yesterday was intense. Long, emotional, and painful. At the end of days like that all I want to do is curl up with a book until the day is officially over and I can go to bed and prepare to welcome the next, better day.
Some days though, the mail man and your flickr friends really come through and save the day!
When I got home last night there were 2 AMAZING packages waiting for me. One I knew what it was, but the other I totally started freaking over thinking it was either my DQS10 package or my Make Mine Modern package!
I looked at the return address, recognized the name, say the message she had written on the outside saying "Make Mine Modern goodies just for you" and started ripping open the box as quickly as possible thinking I knew what it was and hoping I was right! And I was!!
It was from Elizabeth!! I got her bookshelf mini quilt!
Isn't it stunning?!?! The backing is one of my new all time fabrics - I mean just look at all those books!
And the machine binding is beyond perfect! I have always been afraid to learn how to machine bind my quilts, but seeing first hand how neat and pretty it can be makes me want to try it!
Not to mention all the other awesome goodies she was so kind to send to me!
Seriously, this is my favorite swap. I have gotten such beautiful things from my 2 partners in this swap and I really feel like they both took the time to really try and get to know me and create something for me that I would not only like, but truly love. AND I DO!!!
My other package was this lovely box!! And seriously whenever you get a box this big from Fat Quarter Shop means you know it will be full of the most wonderful lovelies.
And it was!!!!
An entire box full of BELLA SOLIDS!!
Can you even count the number of beautiful shades in this box??
31!!! They are for some super secret sewing that I will be doing this month. So stay tuned for some AWESOME NEWS!!
