It's like Christmas ...


I guess that's the drawback of all this time on my hands, I can browse to my hearts content, only its Sooooooo easy to press that 'Confirm Order' button. Still, there has to be some pleasure in all this laying about! Surely?

So the postman has been calling, and I've had most of my packages from the States, I confess there may be a few more to come...
these are destined for backings ... well that's the plan!
And don't you just love the way they are carefully wrapped with a 2 1/2" bow, such a lovely touch, and free fabric too!

Another backing..

I couldn't resist these Amy Butler fabrics...

So fresh!
Hang on .... its the postman at the door again! (Bad girl!)
Happy quilting!

Some of those fabrics look beautiful. Please would you share which "shop" they came from?

Hey, there! Your purchases look lovely all wrapped up with a bow no less, makes spending the $$ a little bit less painful. Right? The fabrics are just stunning, well done!

Ha ha, my first parcel from US is on it's way too - even without being laid up I seem able to press that confirm button!! Can't wait...and if it's a good service I guess I'll just have to use them more :) Thanks for the tip, Lis
