Happy Mail

i know that we all love getting 'happy mail' you know the mail that comes in larger envelopes that sometimes is squishy. last week was a great 'happy mail' week for me. it seemed like almost everyday there was something waiting for me in my mail box.

i don't remember the order that it all came in but here is what i got.




these lovely fat quarters arrived from the Fat Quarter Shop. no i didn't order anything from there but my H2H partner Larissa did. Larissa lives in Australia so it was more cost effective for her to order fabric in the US and have it sent right to me.




i won this lovely slipper pattern from Mauby's along with 2 half yard cuts of fabric of my choice from Above All Fabrics.





then this lovely DS fabric showed up from Sarah over at Confessions of a Fabric Addict. i won one of her giveaways from the H2H Challenge. i wanted some of this DS fabric but just hadn't made the trip to JoAnn's yet to get any. thanks Sarah for saving me the trip.






another wonderful little package showed up last week & in it was this great little jewelry pouch from Talin’s Corner. it was part of Pay It Forward 2011 so stay tuned for my part of Paying It Forward.





then in yesterday’s mail came this AMAZING prize that i won from Candi over at Raccoon Creek Quilts. Candi is part of the PMQG & they had Cherri there as a guest speaker at a meeting. i have had my eye on this book for sometime & i am so happy that I won it.




its even signed & everything. i know that i will be making several of the projects out of this book. i also go a charm pack of bright colored solids & my mind is spinning with ideas for that.


so that’s my ‘happy mail’ for the past week or so. i spent a lot of time in the sewing cave this past weekend so come back tomorrow to see what i got done.
