Mail in, mail out

I am, for sure, keeping the postal services into business lately. I have sent 8 parcels this morning with Bee blocks to my fellow swappers. I prepared all my packages last night while watching TV and they all went in the box this morning!

And in the last few weeks, I have replenished my stash (which doesn't really need to be, anyway) but then, do we *NEED* to need fabric to buy more?

First I ordered 2 lovely FQ bundles from the Fat Quarter Shop. I fell under the charm of the Follow My Heart line by Lynette Anderson for Lecien fabrics. So when the bundles were on offer for half price with 40% off shipping, how could I resist and with such a bargain why not buying the 2 colourways. The order was delivered so swiftly and with no trouble at all. Great service as usual.

Of course I already have a plan for this fabric (well, maybe!). I would love to make the Merry Merry Snowmen quilt from Bunny Hill Design and I think this fabric would work well for it. I bought the pattern last year in Birmingham, now I only need to locate it! 

And then when I was sewing my Bee Europa block for Cille, I managed to mis-read the instructions so badly that I cut the fabric she had send wrong. So I shopped for some more fabric and while I was ordering, I thought it would be rude not to browse the whole shop (just in case) and also to make the postage charge worthwhile. So I ordered some Lark fabric from the Eclectic Maker. And they had a gorgeous Liberty bundle that I couldn't pass.

And then I found a charm pack of Coma fabric and ordered half yard of 3 of the fabrics in the line, only 3 because it wouldn't have been reasonable to order more... I will stroke them for a while before I dare using them I am sure!

Again the fabric arrived very swiftly and greatly packed. Great service. That was my first order but I will use them again!
Linking up with Let's Get Acquainted Monday at Plum and June


  1. Boy you have had busy mail days. You are so right it would have been terribly rude not to order both color ways. I have to go and check this line out. I did love the comma charmpack and the fabrics you ordered with it. Have fun.

  2. Love the variety of fabrics you have ordered! Visiting from let's get acquainted.

  3. Love the new fabrics, I couldn't resist a little Comma either when i saw it at the weekend! :o)

  4. Beautiful fabrics, I especially love the ones you have chosen for the Merry Snowmen quilt and that Liberty bundle! Thanks for linking up this week.
