2 fabulous packages arrived today! I do so love it when packages arrive! And it's even better when it's something you've won. I follow a wonderful blog called Reanna Lily Designs. Jen is a quilter who not only makes gorgeous quilts, but makes quilt patterns too! I myself don't quilt but my mom does so I always like seeing what is going on in the quilting world. Well last week was Jen's birthday...to celebrate she did the gift giving! Every day she held a drawing, with Fridays' drawing being for 12 half-yards cuts of gorgeous fabrics!!!! Well being the fabric-hound that I am, I HAD to enter. I honestly never expected to win though. So imagine my surprise when in my inbox Monday was an email from Jen asking for my home address cause I had won the fabric giveaway!!! Weeeeee =D Well my fabrics arrived today being even more gorgeous in person! I simply cannot wait to get to play with them and create several fabulous goodies with all my pretty new fabrics!
My second awesome package held more fabric; a vintage cheater cloth in tiny prints and gorgeous shades of brown. This will eventually become a quilt of 2 in my mom's quilt shop doll house. From the same seller I purchased a 1999 issue of Barbie Bazaar magaine. Sadly this magazine is no longer being published but I am bidding on a couple lots of mags on ebay. I wish there was a magazine like this being published today. I chuckled at a editorial in it that asked "Now that the internet is here to stay..." This just completely made me giggle. I vaguely remember being in my early 20's around this time and the only time I dealt with computers was at work in the furniture store doing office work. No internet though. And here I am barely 11 years later and I feel weird if I don't check my email every day! We've come a long way, baby!!!
I am currently working on a pair on 1/6th scale pillows using striped material. Hopefully I'll be able to show them off tomorrow. I'm also lengthening a pair of RL curtains for a friends daughter's dorm room. Which reminds me I better get back to that! LOL Have a great weekend y'all!
