Home late-ish after a long day, sore feet, looking forward to a cup of tea....check the letter box....a parcel for me...yay! A bit of a spring in the step now...it's from Marls in NZ...goody! Then I notice this sweet little box near the front door...it's from Gracie in the US! Oh happy day...two parcels to open (how old am I??).
My mother always said patience is a virtue, so I cooked my dinner, made a cup of tea and then sat down and savoured the momentS!! Recently I have been fortunate enough to win two giveaways...very lucky.
Marls gave away this book...Scrap Republic...it is absolutely FABULOUS...especially given my recent colour workshop at Material Obsession. It had my mind darting through my fabrics...plotting and planning future projects. I love the quote related to your stash size..."if you feel like Norm walking into Cheers when visiting your local quilt shop- yes, everyone knows your name!"...and all this time I thought I was just unforgettable! Truly, this is a great book and I am super grateful to Marls for sending it to me!
Gracie had an Un-birthday giveaway & I was lucky to win this box of goodies! Citrus yellow and orange fabrics with great threads, a sweet beaded angel, peppermints ( great for my handbag) and a jar of Prickly Pear Cactus Jelly...I have been intrigued since Gracie recently mentioned this...looking forward to a taste test! Thank you so much Gracie!!
Garcie and Marls definitely brightened my day...I might just have to brighten some ones day soon too!
