A box cam in the mail for me last Saturday. It was a fun box filled with goodies from Carolyn in Texas. It always amazes me how with careful packing so many goodies can fit into one box!!
These were so fun. There are a bunch of loose left over charm blocks. Those are going in a pile for my neighbor girl. They work WONDERFULLY when I’m sewing with her! I plan to use the two patriotic charm packs and make our quilt Connect Four that is in our published quilt book, Country Girl Modern.
In the stack in the back on the right were lots of cowboy prints. When Connie was here she was telling me about all the pillow cases she makes. They are so cute I’m saving some of them for pillow cases…How fun will cases be that have horses and cowboys?
Also in the mix were these little gems. I love the sewing themed ones. I think they would work with some little crafty projects. I am betting once Kayla sees the one with pins she’ll try to snag it away from me. Kayla’s last name is Pins and thus the addiction to anything that has pins.
Remember the cute little pop up garbage cans that Kelli and I made with Connie? The red one sure would be fun to use to make another one. I’d love to figure out how to hang one off my long arm quilting machine to put threads in. Too often I end up with threads on the floor and then threads in the beater of the vacuum cleaner. UGH…I think I’ll work on trying to figure out a way to attach one to the quilting machine…or maybe one of you know of a pattern for one.
Carolyn told me to expect more boxes…OH MY!! I am anxious to get them!
I have an easy way of storing fabric. My neighbor girl has taken to putting a lot of it away for me. It’s so fun hanging with her.
Thanks so much Carolyn….You were so kind to think of me.
