Things in the mail and work in progress

17 comments
I love getting things in the mail. In fact I do much of my shopping online. And with fuel prices, it makes sense.

I ordered this from Jen Duncan this week. Its a charm pack of fabulous fabric with a button card and vintage seam binding. I love it. She has more of these listed on her etsy store. She even sent cherry fabric, how great is that! I also got a CD of vintage post cards from Jen. I can't load them, so frustrating, because somethings up with my computer. I'll be sure to add that problem to Dave's 'honey do' list for the weekend, though.


The lastest issue of Marie Claire Ideas came. I don't speak a word of french but the pictures are darling. This issue was a little disappointing. There wasn't anything I loved, really.

There was this nice drawing of lemons though, since I've got fruit on my brain.
And this fruity pic made me want to go make some fresh juice drinks or something. It all looks so yummy and sweet.


I got a very sweet surprise package from Monica with mementos from market inside. She's such a great and talented gal. Her blog has a fun post about Quilt Market.


Monica included box with Sandi Henderson squares of fabric. Isn't that a cute idea? That Sandi.
Thanks so much Monica!! What a sweet surprise! It was the next best thing to being there.

I said yesterday I was going to work on Dear Jane last night but I ended up working more on my new little dress quilt. I'll work on the Dear Jane Saturday when I have enough time to devote to the concentration it requires. I would like to finish this dress quilt by next week and get it to the quilter's. Having Monday off will be great. And the weather here is cold and rainy so I'll have time indoors to maybe make some progress. Have a great weekend everyone.

Isn't that little box of fabric from Sandi delicious! I'm going to make a little nappy time quilt for Triskit from my box. She did nap in Sandi's booth after all!

I was too fast on the send button and didn't finish! Thank you for my treats too... I just love them! Thank you Nanette!

Also... I totally agree with you about online shopping vs driving/gas prices.

Love this post. Love the cherry fabric! I have that! I bought a couple of yards with no clue as to what I was going to do with it. But couldn't resist. I saw those little boxes at Sandi's booth. I wondered what was in them! Way cute! Can't wait to see the dresses on a quilt.

Hi Nanette-thanks for the heads up on Marie Claire Idees. I'm heading off to my bookstore to get a copy. Someday I'll bite the bullet & subscribe! I noticed the lemon-right down your fruit-laden alley, huh? Like everyone else, I can't wait to see that dress quilt--too cute. Luve, Nerm

Visits from the parcelman just make my day! It's even nice when you know you have something on it's way - something to look forward too! Now, I may have to order something this afternoon so I can get all excited again! :-) I just love your little dresses Nanette - I cannot wait to see what you do with them this time.
