A Lovely Surprise and a Big Thank You!

Months and months ago I participated in the Sew, Mama, Sew! Fat Quarter swap, and because I am a slacker I never posted pictures of the fat quarters I received. One of the swappers, Kristin Bare (Hi Kristin!) read this blog and took note of all of my favorite things and sent me the most amazing box that included the bee fabric I used to make Maddie's birthday skirt, Winnie the Pooh boxes, a read the Bible in a Year book and much, much more. I was remiss in not thanking her publically then.

A week and a half ago I got a surprise package in the mail, another box from Kristin, just because! I nearly fell over! It was filled with so much gorgeousness . . . a beautifully crosstitched table runner, some Pooh Bear frames and a box, some lovely pieces of fabric . . . as well as this awesome flannel (Maddie's Christmas present scarf anyone?) . . .

this amazing fabric from Free Spirit . . . um, oh my gosh!

And, no, your eyes do not deceive you, this is a gorgeous piece of some Nicey Jane!

Thank you, thank you, thank you Kristin!


  1. WOW!! I actually needed this post as a reminder that sending someone fabric "just because" is not a weird thing to do after all!

  2. Oh beautiful fabric! Kristen sure is generous and has great taste! What a beautiful surprise to brighten your day!


I love comments! Thanks for taking the time to chat with me!
