We have our 3rd WCSMQG meeting tonight, so while we’re propping up the bar ans discussing all things quilty, I’ll leave you to drool over my post from yesterday…
First up, the lovely and generous Lynne sent me some Aurifil monofilament thread after I had asked on her FQ thread announcing the Aurifil sponsorship if they could bring some along for us to try. Wasn’t that nice of her?
Now I can get to my rainbow road bag. Well, after I tackle my more urgent to do list for the week…
Then my blocks arrived from the Japanese x and + swap, organised by Sarah. We sent in a certain number of blocks, in multiples of 5, and got the same number back. Given my rather insane list of other things to do, I just sent 5, but look at the stunners I got back!!! Perfect selection Sarah :o)
Now to decide what to do with them… I think this could be a long term WIP.
Finally, when I was ordering my fabric for the massive 5 yard rainbow charm swap that Kati’s organising, I took advantage of the discount Brenda offered participants and did a little stocking up of my own (well you have to when there’s a discount, right? ;o) )
In that pile of half yards, there’s a couple of lovely flannels, a couple of Pezzy prints, a couple of American Jane Punctuation, a couple of Reunion, some Children At Play Paper Hats, some Washi, and unknown computer keyboard type print and some voile.
How wipe that drool up, it’s not good for the keyboard ;o)
Oh my I'm drooling over the keyboard fabric 🙂
Tonight????? Arrggghhhhhh don't know if I can make it! Will try
Love those fabrics and blocks
Your x and + blocks are gorgeous! Can't wait to see that WIP move along. It's going to be super pretty.
I don't drool – just green with envy!!
5 yards!!! 5 yards!!! Holy ***, Ive had my fill of sorting rainbow swaps for a while (think the postal stress may have caused it however) Good luck to Kati! Your shopping is lush too 🙂
Your postperson did very well by you yesterday, I hope you remember to leave them a tip at Christmas!(Are you still allowed to do that?)
Do you have plans for the extra fabric you ordered or were they just because purchases?
Enjoy your meeting
nicely done, must take advantage when the coupons are offered 🙂
That's a lovely pile of new fabric! And a huge charm swap – you'll be cutting for days!!
Okay you got me… wiping the drool from my chin as I type…
The x and+ blocks look fabulous. I really like that block, and will have to make some……eventually.
You definitely have to take advantage of any discounts. Lots of loveliness in that pile!
You have some lovely fabric there and your + and x block swaps received look like you got some good ones.
Jealous, jealous, jealous. xx
Wow, I LOVE those five blocks you received. I have really been wanting to make some of those myself. And your stack of fabric IS very drool-worthy!
Ooh, that *is* some happy mail! Yay!
Great hoard of loveliness
Shiiiiiiit!! I thought the meeting was THIS week!! Not that I could have come anyway last week(Spouse at work and my Mum works late on a Thursday) but I would have set my apologies. Sorry!!!!!!
