Thankful Tuesday

23 comments
Yesterday I was asked if my cottages are the first to be sewn together. Nope. I think others may be as far along as me. Except for Kathy at Creative Urges! Go over and see her quilt top all put together. She did such a great job putting all the cottages together and making a cohesive quilt. It is just lovely. Each one seems to be floating in a cloud almost. I love it.

It was a very nice mail day for me yesterday.
Carrie sent me a sweet and fabulous gift. Carrie! How thoughtful and sweet of you. Carrie is a blog reader that needed a blog and she started A Passion for Applique. And Carrie is a pro.

Look at this lovely felted pincushion. So cute! I love the colors too.
Everything was wrapped in this fabulous twill tape with "from me to you" on it. Carrie how did you do that? And look at this cute cute Christmas pin! I love it. Adorable.
Carrie knows I love novelty fabric. And houses. Of course. She sent Christmas house fabric, lovely architecture fabric, and darling kitchen fabric. Sweet stuff.Look how cute that cat is in the transom. I'm going to have to do something with this fabric this holiday season. Thanks again Carrie. I ordered one of Jodie's new acrylic templates and it arrived yesterday packaged very well. I use 8 1/2" blocks from time to time and I love having a square template for each size I use. It was affordable and a good idea. The graphics are raised so I figure I can turn it upside down and it's like having a non-slide surface, sorta. Nice job Jodie.Glenna mailed me her pattern. Thanks Glenna! And that arrived yesterday, too.
About a week ago or so Lisa mailed me her template used in that fabulous star quilt I love so much on her blog. Lisa inspires me. Thanks Lisa! Every few days I have to go look at that quilt and dream of making it next year.

So yes! It is a Thankful Tuesday for me. I have the greatest friends.

Oooh, first to comment :-)

Very nice gifts you have, Nanette. And like you I am bursting to make that star quilt in those fabulous colors. You will actually get it done though and I'll just keep on dreaming about it.

How fun to see the first "full-grown" cottage quilt! Lucky lady you are with so many gifties in the mail! I love it when I see the mailman come to the door instead of leaving the mail at the box as it always means something interesting!!
