How about an unusual midweek post? This week I received three lovely packages. The first I purchased.
Connecting Threads. Well, my order wasn't much but it put us into the free shipping category. I so rarely have enough to order from them to qualify for free shipping.
I got a cute sign (very appropriate if you check my stash report numbers), some 1" hexie paper pieces on sale, and 3 polka dot FQs which were also on sale. The green dots are barely there - it reads solid. This is why I don't often buy fabric online without having seen it first. The great thing about CT is that you can always buy a charm sampler for a tiny investment to preview their fabric.
I won a drawing at Clover & Violet related to the Embroidery 101 QAL. Jennie sent this lovely pouch (with an interior pocket and zipper), a cute needle book, and a pack of embroidery needles. She must have peeked at my stash to see how much brown and golden brown I have - lol.
I can really use the needles as I've started doing another project and I only have one size atm. I've already put some stitching supplies in the pouch - just the right size. Jennie has announced that she will do another small stitch before the holidays so check her blog for details.
Aren't the FQs pretty?! I L-O-V-E batiks!! Irene left the tags on them from CT so that I know what to order if I need more.
Hhhmmm...I have had my eye out for some bright yellow fabric to use in a quilt for my step dad whose favorite color is yellow.
The Essential Thread in white is perfect, too. My white spool in my hexie pouch is almost gone and I used it for basting all the white centers of my hexie flowers as well for some of the petals.
These goodies have a brightened an otherwise dreary and rainy start to this week. Thank you, Jennie and Irene!
Have a lovely day!
