Yum.

Are you looking for the Goodie Swap Sign Up post?  Click here
Today is your last chance to sign up!

What the the lovely postman bring to my house today?  Little packages of happiness, of course.


The most fantastic thing to arrive is this little envelope of goodness from Sarah of Fairy Face Designs.  Sarah saw my WIP post earlier this week and noticed I was stuck short of scrappy fabric for my Community Quilt.  I needed 7 little two inch squares of any fabric that had not already been used in the quilt.  Seven. Stupid. Squares....and then my quilt top can be finished.  Lovely Sarah volunteered to toss a few 2 inch squares in the post and they arrived today.  Thank you, Sarah!!! Way to live up to the spirit of the Community quilt, my friend. 

If you haven't already been over to Fairy Face Designs, jump over ASAP.  Sarah is hosting the great Across the Sea QAL right now that is just starting, so there is still time to join in the fun!

To compound the happiness, Sarah included a little pile of happy scraps that I can't wait to incorporate into this next project....


I fell in love with this scrappy star quilt at the Ready Thready Sew exhibit a few days ago, so I need to find a few small stacks of vibrantly colored fabric.  I could not resist this little short stack of Erin McMorris Summersaults from Celtic Fusion Fabric.

Happiness.  It comes in small little packages.

Thanks for the mention Cindy and you're totally welcome :-) And girls, I am blushing!

Sarah said...

Aww that's so sweet! Hope you can get it finished now with no further set backs!

I wonder if the person who coined the phrase "Good things come in small packages" felt the same? ;-)

I sooooo wanted to do your Mug Rug swap, but I think the boyfriend will kill me if I sign up for anything else when I am just getting into the swing for school and an upcoming dance show.

Lovely little package - Celtic Fusion Fabric? Just let me write that down....

Quilting is so nice because there are so many people like Sarah out there. Ready to lend a hand and think nothing of it. So many good people.
