HUMONGOUS MAIL DAY

Talk about a good mail day.....



I do 2 Blocks of the month with Main St Cotton Shop . The first is from the Pint Size Traditions II book. It's called "RADIANT STAR". I'm going to enjoy doing this one. The second one is from the "Room by Room" club and is a flannel kit called "The Easy Block" from the Country House Quilts book. I am not even putting this kit away, I'm going to cut into this bad boy this week!!!

Then my fairly godmother aka Robin surprised both Michelle and I with this really cute "Christmas Gift Bag" pattern by Natalie Lymer of Cinderberries Stitches! Not only did she send us the pattern, she included the fabric and iron on pellon. All we have to do is sew the darn thing up! I may have to do some tracing and cutting tonight!!!

I also found this cute magazine in the Shop Rite today when I went for some taco makings, and what's nice is I found 2 small projects in it that I think i have to make for my sistas for Christmas!

I'm just wondering if I'll have enough time to do half the stuff I want to do for the holidays?

Oh, and lastly, on Saturday I received the blocks from the brown, cream, turquoise swap that I did with one of my yahoo groups. I must say, I got a lot of very nice blocks......

I will NOT be able to even fondle these blocks for some time. I have a few more things on my agenda to do before I can even think about doing these..... What do you think about setting them, any ideas?

Ooh, that was a good mail day. So, do you have a regular size mailbox or a great big one to accomodate all the squishies you get? : )

Well two of these blocks are mine! I'm planning to set mine alternately with some large showy fabric which I haven't found yet. I THOUGHT IT WAS A LOVELY Collection
