What was I saying about the mail?

These days every time I open my mailbox there is something good in there and I am loving it! I am doing a fabric swap with some other quilters in bloggy land (send 2 6x6 squares of fabric to 5 people and in return you will end up with 72 squares total to make a quilt) and these fabric squares arrived on Monday from the super sweet Nicole, author of the fabulous blog GardenMama. When it comes to gardening she is everything that I am not and her blog is just so inspiring and beautiful to look at. Its like the perfect cookie to go along with a great cup of tea.

I'm looking forward to getting the rest of my squares. This will be a special quilt for sure... definitely something for my reading chair! If you are interested in participating in the swap leave me a comment here and I will send out your fabric asap!

I also finished up another birthday backpack and personalized baby blanket earlier this week but hadn't had a chance to post them yet so here they are.


  1. It is so fun to see the postcard and fabric in your photo!
    Thank you for your kind words, it is lovely getting to know you! You are a very sweet and down to earth person : )
    Great job on the presents you have sewn, you are one talented mama!!
    Happy weekend to you!

  2. I am looking at your sidebar of books and see many favorites, I wanted to ask you if you were familiar with Tasha Tudor? She inspires me and I think you would enjoy her lifestyle as well!


I love to hear from you! Please leave a comment and I will reply in the comments section unless you leave me an email address and ask me to reply that way.
