What’s that in my mail box? Part 2

Hi all,

I have a few more lovely things to show you that have landed in my mail box recently!

First up, you may remember Vreni and I had a little swap going, well here is my little present…..

It is the most gorgeous sewing box, I love the russian dolls on the lid with their hand drawn faces! And check out the inside….

Some handy little items – scissors with their cute little keeper, a marking pencil, a little house brooch and stick on thimbles! So cool – thank you Vreni, I love it!

While the Aussie dollar is good I thought I might treat myself to some sweetness from the US of A!

This is the Make Life range of fabric from Sweetwater.

Doesn’t it look great all stacked up? I might leave it like this for a little while!

Do you see that book underneath? I was inspired to get this book after seeing the quilts here.

Now I need to feed my love of charm packs! You really need 2 packs to make any of the patterns in the book, unfortunately when buying packs in the past I have only bought singles so I will have to remedy that, some how.

I also got some Kona cotton solids, what beautiful fabric, which I have already cut up! So you should see them soon!

Be happy,
Jess

Lovely fabrics. I'm loving the Aussie dollar at right now. It's supposed to get even better. Where do you like to shop for your fabrics in USA?

Glad you like the box. And I love your new fabrics. I goggled them so I could see them in detail. What are you planning to do with them after you've looked at them for a while? Have a happy weekend. Vreni x

That stack of fabrics looks devine. Lovely colours. I've been window (screen?) shopping lately while AU$ is good but there's soooo many things I'd like it's difficult to choose and I don't have the $$$ for all of them :P!

What a box! It's fantabulou. I love a good stack of fat quarters, I've been spending on Battings while the dollar is so good.
