My son loves singing the Blue's Clues mail song, and whenever I have a good mail day, I just can't help myself, I start singing it on my own. I've had some awesome things in my mailbox lately and I just have to share...
I won an awesome half-yard bundle from The Sewing Summit's blog, in Alexander Henry's Larkspur. Not sure what I'll use it for just yet, but I love the saturated, bright colors in this collection. I got a bonus FQ from Freebird with this package, which was an awesome surprise!
I've gotten a few swap packages in the mail. I love swaps, it's like Christmas in my mailbox. And it's always a surprise, which is the best part. My swap partner, Amy, for the Spicing Up the Kitchen swap did a fantastic job for me, and even made a runner loosely based on my Sliced Coins quilt along. My other awesome goodies included a coffee mug, a mug rug, and a potholder to match the runner.
For the Urban Home Goods swap, I got seriously spoiled. My partner, Corrie, sent me a gorgeous notebook, along with a sweet mug rug and a mini-quilt for my sewing room. I just love the darling little mug rug, with the pennant style, I've loved some of the pennant style things I've seen on Flickr, and I'm excited to have my very own piece.
And finally, I got another Pips precut to round out my collection, although when the package came in, I was severely concerned about whether or not they made it in one piece.
Fortunately, the Pips were A-OK, despite the fumble from the postal service. This seems to be happening more often lately with my packages, but thankfully, most of the places I shop are wrapping fabric in plastic to ensure that it's not damaged during shipping.
Happy St. Patrick's Day to you all!
