Gift by Mail

Today, I opened the mailbox to find a parcel from Sue, at QBSA. It is the giveaway fabric that I was lucky enough to win from her blogiversary. Thank you so much Sue, the fabrics are beautiful and perfect for my stash. And, I love the adorable little card-just in time for spring.

I am just loving these fabrics. 

I wasn't sure at first what I was going to make with them but I have this super cute double pattern by Lori Smith called Grandmother's Basket.

A Wonderful Weekend!

This weekend MommaBird was in town visiting. We did lots of shopping, checking out the local quilt shops and sewing. We both worked on our "Mom & Me quilts" and I got three blocks done. I definitely have to hustle this week on my last Bicycle for next week's club.

I accidentally had two of the beige half-square triangles backwards with the wrong side on top. It was quite obvious so I tried to tea-dye the 2 triangles with some chai tea I found in the cupboard- it is not nearly as obvious now.

I also received my Selvage Needle Case from Brenda, Manitoba. Thank you so much Brenda, it is lovely and I can't wait to use it.
