Thank you to the man in brown


I love it when the UPS man comes. He always brings great things :)

I spent some of my birthday money on these goodies. All fabrics were bought with an intended purpose.

From left to right:

plum fabric binding for my Mendocino picnic blanket (yet to be made)

Plaid fabric 1/2 yard for the skirt pattern(bottom trim) on far left, 1/2 yard for binding for my meadowsweet quilt (yet to be made)

Amy Butler floral to be used with new skirt pattern (either main piece or trim)

Octopi print 1 yard for main part of skirt pattern, 1 yard to go towards backing of the picnic blanket.

Hopefully I will get three different skirts made for spring/summer with these new fabrics and ones from my stash. And before my next birthday I hope to have both the picnic blanket and meadowsweet quilt done.

everything was purchased at

Thank you to all the wonderful birthday wishes and gifts. They made my birthday extra special.
