Some of you who are in my Yahoo group Small Quilt Talk participated with me in our recent 6" x 6" charm fabric swap. My charms arrived yesterday and Oh WOW, take a look -
Receiving a package of fabric in the mail is enough to make me swoon. How about you?
Question: Do our husbands know this?? I don't really crave diamonds, rubies or sapphires. Fabric in beautiful colors is gem enough for me sometimes. My husband "persuaded" me to fall in love with him on our first Valentine's Day together by sending me at least 50 different funny valentines he arranged to have delivered throughout the day at my office. It drove the mail department nuts . . . I think he paid them to send someone to run upstairs with a few every 15 minutes. So sweet and romantic. He knew I'd love that more than flowers or candy. Oh, okay, sure, I'll be your girlfriend. I think I'd fall in love all over again if I got pretty fabric in the mail on a regular basis. (Hint, hint . . . I'm also partial to silver now, Hon. )
I signed up for 2 sets of 40 and so received 80 squares of assorted reproduction fabrics.
I love the variety. As you can imagine, I played with my squares for a very long time. So pretty and many I had never seen before. No uglies! Lovely prints in so many different colors.
I am going to look at them for a little while longer before I actually have the heart to cut into them . . . .
Have a good weekend!
