SOME of my mail.

25 January 2009

i won one of seven prizes during vickie's giveaway.
my prize came and i'm in love!!!

the pincushion alone makes me giddy.
but when i saw this fabulous stack of reproduction charms...i jumped up & down.
the hubby called me a HUGE dork.
{i'm used to it!!!}

and yall should know that sometimes i go to vickie's blog just to listen to her music.
it makes me happy.

and nancy...she's the sweetest!!!

here's the story:
about 2 years ago pat sloan did her calendar quilt challenge with her yahoo group.
well she mailed a piece of fabric to nancy.
{this moon & stars fabric.}

well nancy, being the sweetheart that she is, mailed me half of that piece of fabric.
so now nancy & i will have the same fabric in our calendar quilt...and it's from pat!!!
how sweet is that???
SUPER sweet!!!

nancy you really made my day with this little gift!!!
i got all teary eyed and everything!!!
and the hubby called me a HUGE dork again!!!
{this time i smacked him!!!}

so there you have SOME of the mail i've gotten.
more to come. promise.
i'm just SUPER tired and i need full force rachel strength to tell yall a story.
it's about me & mandie this weekend.

Quilty people are such generous souls - parcels filled with handamde goodies and special fabric or treasured pieces. Share the love.

Like I said before, she needs a blog to join the cool club!!

I can't believe you have fabric from pat! that's like better than an autograph!

I made a hand pieced quilt out of those fabrics. I'll take a picture of that too!

i was a total slacker today and didn't take pictures of my new quilt for you....forgive me? I will tomorrow...promise.

How NICE of Nancy....but not surprising as she is a super gal. Cute pincushion and nice charms, too. Can't wait for the Mandie-no-blog story! :)

Congratulations on the giveaway. Very pretty! I really like those fabrics and I am sure you will find a special use for them.

okay those 2 comments that were deleted were from mandie.
they were her introduction.
but since we made a post entirely for that, i chose to delete it from here.

just in case yall were wondering.
