The Mail Arrived on a Wet Day

 

The yellow parcel arrived,marked

“From  Sew Sisters Quilt Shop, 3961 Chesswood Drive, Toronto, On.”

What excitement, I was on my way to get a haircut, but that had to wait!!! Visit them here at this link,……    Sew Sisters Quilt Shop

Thank you so much for your generous sponsorship in the “Wiggle-me-sew-along”, and to Sandy at Upstairs Hobby Room , for her wonderful challenge, as she encouraged, inspired, and helped each  one of us with her lovely comments.

The Glorious Colours

All those glorious colours, a pack of blues, one of reds, and one of greens . I can see these will be on display, looked at often, re-arranged, and  then put into a pattern, that I will treasure always.

Did I mention earlier that I was one of the so lucky 5, to receive a gift voucher from one of the sponsors in the Wiggle-Me -sew-along challenge? This is my choice, but when I visited the web page/pages, of Sew Sisters, I went back so many times as I changed my choices, Oh!!! that I lived closer. (Dream on, girl)!!!

Gorgeous fabrics, Jean! And you are the perfect artist to dip into that palette. Just saw pics of the Gollum display at Wellington airport. You kiwis are so creative! Wonderful!

Georgia said...

Congrats Jean! I don't think you can go wrong with any choice from a shop like that :)

Kate said...

Perhaps it is a good thing you don't live closer. Temptation is so much easier to avoid when there is an ocean between you and the quilt shop!

I can see why you'd like those colours! Sounds like you've really enjoyed your quilting challenge. Mrs. FG spent yesterday in the garage dyeing fabric all afternoon. Today she unwraps them to see the results.

Jim said...

Nothing better than receiving 'gifts' in the mail!!
What a treasure you have here, Jean. Feeling your excitement clear across the planet!!
have fun!

Karen said...

Those are lovely! I'm sure you will create something special with them.

Sandy W said...

So many thanks everyone for lovely comments, Sandy and Carol, without your generosity,( Challenge and voucher) I would not have these gorgeous fabrics, now all I need is a design, so am open to any and all suggestions, Use them by themselves, have sashing in a plain dark fabric, or add more and do a rainbow design? I have them on my desk and look at them so often. Years ago I took a very old ( in years) friend with me, and he commented "" You are just like my mother!!! Pick up or handle every fabric you can see!!!"", That hasn't changed.

How lovely!!! I will look forward to seeing what you create!!

Jennifer A. Jilks said...

Good for you! There is a strong Canadian community in crafty things.
You sound well, I'm so happy.
I nearly completed two of 4 skirts for my granddaughters. Much fun. xx from Canada!

Barb said...

Ohhh - how pretty! I can't wait to see your next creation.

KB Bear said...

Those are such vibrant and gorgeous colors. Have fun with them!

Tanya said...

Love seeing your kitties having so much fun outdoors. I still don't let mine out mostly because I'm afraid of the traffic. Too bad... They never get to have a jaunt through the grass like yours.
