monday equals mail day

OK lets talk mail! 

firstly, I think credit should go to Katy of I'm a Ginger Monkey for enabling me to find some of these beauties!

first up a Low Volume bundle from Pink Castle Fabrics  ...


and whilst I was browsing I found these Tula Pink Swallow fabrics in the sale section 

and then there was this moda marbles that I scored at the quilt group last month, thanks to Edwina at the Stitchery in Ruskngton, technically not mail, but an arrival after all ...


one or two frames for a blog hop I;m taking part in soon ...  

I may need to order more!


and some key fob hardware ...



and a few essentials ...


and then there were these buttons ... oh and I also got given some hand turned wooden buttons too, but forgot to take a pic of those


and I forgot to show you these lovelies that arrived a few weeks ago ...


I was so excited to get these, and the prospect of green bias stripe , oh, but I have to say I was a little disappointed with the green, which is more on the mustard side  ... oh well, still gorgeous all the same right?

and lastly there was this glorious bundle that arrived from Susan of Canadian Abroad, who just happen to be Queen Bee this month for the Brit Bee ...


I cut into them yesterday whilst I took a break from the quilting ... oh, they do make me happy!

so that was the mail, there was also a mahooooooosive roll of wadding too, but lets face it, that's no fun to look at!

I'll show you my quilting progress tomorrow, I had a surprise to two yesterday!

I have this vision that one day one of us is going to get a text from you saying that you're buried in fabric and need to be rescued...

Cindy said...

Oh my goodness I want to get lost in your stash. Katy might be onto something :)
The fabrics from Susan are just gorgeous. Can't wait to see what you make!

I think the most apt word in the post is enabling! You can shop for England. But great buys so who am I to argue. Pleased you like your fabric selection. Looks very nice the way you have photographed it. Makes me pleased with myself. ;-)
