I have lots to share before I leave for the week. First, I ordered some fabric from Hawthorne Threads and from Sew Mama Sew. It is the Peacock line by Allison Jane Smith and I am sooo in love with it. Here you will see the lovely Aiden modeling my package from SMS.
I just fell in love with this and it is so much prettier in person.
But I bought one piece of Farmdale too. Love it.
Not sure why I find this so appealing but I sure do. This is the FQ bundle I bought from Hawthorne. Just GORGEOUS!!
I especially love the actual peacock fabric.
Then I received a package from McCall's Quilts. Remember me entering my quilt and not making it to the second challenge? Well there were only 3 quilts that did not advance and mine was one of the three. You know how when you are looking at all the entries and you choose "the ugly" ones? It was kind of a shock to realize that my quilt was "one of those". I really didn't/don't think so but obviously it was. Is that like having a child only a mother can love too? Now before you all tell me something different, just realize that no matter what anyone says, it still stings just a little bit. My ego is a little bruised. Maybe that's what I needed? I'm over the contest and think things are working out in a different direction so no worries about me! All that being said, here is what they sent to me.
Quite the haul wouldn't you agree?? I have shared some of it with my BFF, PTM too because she is soooo good to me.
Speaking of that my other BFF LTW, and I went to Checker again and picked up our order. That was a fun morning on Friday. I drove PTM's stuff to her and there were tea towels in the box. We were talking about making something for us to give Heather Ross when I see her and when I got to PTM's she had made these darling bags (using HR fabric). One for her, one for Heather and one for me. I don't have pics of the bags but I will. Then she took the tea towels and washed them and traced a little something on mine for me to embroider. I finished mine and here it is:
It is a free pattern from Bird Brain Designs. I am also giving her some homemade salsa.
This brings you up to date on my comings and goings. I need to finish the laundry, go to the grocery and pack, we are leaving early tomorrow. If I can get internet I will post while I am gone otherwise I will see you all on the 25th.
