Just got home!

Just got home from Delaware. Look at my mom's gorgeous azaleas outside my bedroom window.


And I had some goodies waiting for me! First off Wendy from Snippets of a Quilter was so kind to send me some leftovers of the Japanese fabrics she used for that absolutely wonderful little japanese sewing bag she made. I"m going to attempt to wing it and make it. We will see how it goes! Thank you so much Wendy!

And Darlene from Tizzyquilting saw my pig fabric I bought for my friend in Paducah and while going through her stash found this hysterical flying pig fabric and sent it to me for her. Isn't it a riot! Thank you Darlene!

And last but not least, I had won from Joanna Figueroa of Fig Tree Quilts a drawing for a kit for her Dandelion Girl Fabric Line. Well it arrived while I was gone! Oh it is soooo pretty! Thank you Joanna! I"m going to be busy now!

Maybe I should go away more often!

Lucky girl!!! Looks like some pretty terrific fabs waiting for you to play with them!

Gorgeous flowers! I bet your Mom enjoyed your company. Glad you're home safe.

What beautiful azaleas. The azaleas here in the UK are really lovely this year - a wet summer last year helped I think. We have a few pot azaleas which we bring indoors to flower, and they really cheer the house up. Lucky girl, all those lovely fabrics. Have fun playing.

I've got the same question as Molly about the quilty background.
