The mailman finally brought me some goodies today!  

Let's start with the smallest one.  A while back I ordered a vintage dresden clutch from Stephanie at Sand & Starfish.  Silly Canada Post took FOREVER to deliver it, but it finally arrived!

I actually have the same vintage sheet she used for the lining.

Cleo got excited when she saw me open the box, and wanted to check it out for herself.

Here's what I got:

Some awesome Christmas sweater type fabrics.  Every year we take a family photo the night of my company Christmas party when we're all dressed up.  Mr Mouse thought it would be fun to have a goofy picture this year.  I figure he's put up with me making him dress up all purdy, I might as well let him have some fun, too.  Keep your eyes peeled for what I'll make with these!

I'm hoping to make a rainbow quilt with one of my quilting bees.  I bought these cool leaf prints to add to my rainbow fabrics.  

This grey and yellow pattern is to be the binding for my Engagement Ring Quilt.

Teal & Brown Argyle.  Need I say more?

These teeny tiny argyle prints were just so fun!  Great stash builders.

It's never too early to start thinking about Christmas!

Blue for my Jamieson Quilt (more on that later).

Just some fun extras!

Cute flannelette charm pack.  Maybe for a baby blanket?

I've washed the whole bundle... now to fold it!


  1. I LOVE your Christmas picks. And everything else for that matter. And Cleo is adorable as always!

  2. Wow, I think you hit the mother lode of fabric there!

  3. Can't wait to see what you make! I love Connecting Threads!

  4. Oh my! What a lovely bunch of goodies!
