The mailman came today.
Actually we have a mail "lady" and I got one of these last week - but you get the idea. (I never promised to be politically correct - or totally accurate.) Besides, the package I got last week deserved a special post - and I was in the middle of drafting my "LHQ - Scrap Management" - so decided to wait to show you what I got.
Then this came in the mail - and I got it today - MY PRIZES!!
from the Weekly Themed Contest - (St. Patrick's Day) - sponsored by Rocking Chair Quilts. And a nice note from Lisa from Rocking Chair Quilts. "Congratulations and Enjoy"....Lisa
I won the Star Hanger and the Cupcakes Galore pattern. (I tried to do a link for the hanger at Rocking Chair Quilts - but it doesn't appear to be available. So the link goes directly to Joined at the Hip - the hanger is way down at the bottom.)
The hanger is dark blue/navy - and goes real well with a slightly larger red one I got for Christmas - so I should be able to hang any size wall hanging with no problem. I just have to make them first! And this Cupcake pattern is so darn cute - I might have to make it real soon! Another project - oh, goody!
But then -
the other thing I got in the mail - last week - was my fat quarter as promised - from mainer-mainca for sending her a photo for St. Patrick's Day. I asked her to send me her "ugliest" fat quarter - just for fun. She didn't have any "ugly" fat quarters - so she sent me this!!
Here's a close up of two ladies
And a close-up of their baskets - beautiful bright purple and orange - (the photo makes the colors look faded and dull - but they're not - trust me - they are bright and beautiful)
I just HAD to check my stash to see if these ladies had any friends living at my house!
Purple - orange - and pink batik! Perfect match!
and then I found some more friends -
They're going to have a great time together - don't you think?
I have no idea what I'm going to make - but I'll sure have a good time making it!!
So - if I don't post for a couple of days - I'm either trying to finish the binding posts - or playing with the ladies or making cupcakes!!
Talk to you later - gotta go - gotta sew -
