Treats in the Mail

The mail person was very good to me today...lots of goodies :) I got sucked right into Kim's group of gals doing the "Hometown Christmas"...I didn't have the pattern so I did a search online and found the patterns...since I have tons of fabric I have vowed to do the entire thing from my stash...
 
I cut out the first section this afternoon, so I should get to sew them together tomorrow...OK so I bought new patterns, but I am using stash.
This next package came from Quilt Patch Lane...Kim had mentioned this online shop back the beginning of August and so I gave it a try. She had some Roman Holiday fabric left so I ordered enough for the back, background and binding of a quilt I want to do with a bundle I have. This was really pretty funny...I had the bundle and decided I wanted to do the Coventry quilt from the Comfort and Joy book...I had it all figured out, and I knew I still had the fabric in the shop...this was the day before the first day of the 25% off sale at the shop...I was home...I went in the next day only to find out that a lady had come in and bought all the Roman Holiday fabric I had left in the shop...she didn't want to miss out...so I had to go on a quest for what I needed. I was very pleased with the service that I got...very quick, and very nicely packaged...I will definately order from her again.
 
Then I had a Madiera bundle by Blackbird Designs and saw this Miss Rosie pattern...I ordered it and the charm pack pattern from Fat Quarter Quilter's...again great service...I also found the Sunshine and Shadows book from the same site as the Hometown Christmas, but my mind has left and I can't remember what the name of the site was...I want to say Mama's Log House, but I'm not sure what the address is.

I can't believe you had to order fabric that you "used" to have in your shop! That is too funny!

Oh I'll cheer you on with the Hometown Christmas, be sure to keep us posted on your progress. I have also shopped with QuiltPatch Lane and was pleased. I'm off to see if I can find the Sunshine and Shadows book, looks interesting.

Lots of fun goodies in the mail. I had to snicker when you had to seek and find the Roman Holiday fabric elsewhere. :-) I'm really glad that you found the Sunshine and Shadow book - you're going to love making those baskets.

I agree with Melanie - you're having fun already. :-)

Vicky said...

I also chuckled over you having to order the fabric elsewhere. I'm so guilty about going in and buying up what's left in a line I like. LOL

Congrats on your retirement!! Totally jealous here! Looking forward to seeing lots of quilting from you now!!!

Carol, I am envious, I own a quilt store which was my dream. I think about getting yo retire which will be a happy but sad day. I will miss the wonderful customers. I am looking forward to the day I can sew for myself:) Good Luck Enjoy your future! Have fun quilting
