Squishy mail….


It’s been quiet here in the Sugarlane house…….welcome rainy weather has prompted me to do some catch up stuff inside the house!

A little progress on the Quilty Stitches Sampler Along with the sashings and borders nearly done….

I did manage to post my squishy mail goodies for the Birthday Swap this month and now that the ladies have received them, I can show you…..

Anthea requested purples or greens, bright cheery ones, so I managed to find some lovely blenders for her when I was in Melbourne….plus a postcard to help her feel like she was there too!!!  And you might notice a little “extra” for being a bit late…..a cute purple babushka keyring and a pair of heart buttons.

O-Faigh requested white on white so I found this gorgeous FQ for her, and I couldn’t resist some shabby pink heart ribbon and buttons to match.

I also received some surprise squishy mail….I really wasn’t expecting this one, but Susan had asked me for my address a while back as she wanted to send me something ‘small’!!!! I had forgotten about it but this absolutely ‘wow’ed me!!!!

I had blogged about how I’d been working on my flying geese with the Delightful Stars Quilt Along and how happy I’d been with how they’d been turning out.  Susan was telling me about her way of making flying geese where they turned out perfect every time…..I tried it and she was right …I shared about it HERE.   She said she used a special ruler for it but as I didn’t have one, I just used my regular ruler………so………she decided she’d send me one to make it easier!   She really is a darling, isn’t she???

I have a couple of blocks to catch up on so I’m going to try it with this new ruler!!!   Thank you sooooo much Susan…..Can’t wait!

And I have been waiting for this one with anticipation…….

the new Vignette.   Now I can go on with the second block of the Mrs Beasley’s Sampler Quilt.  I got my copy from the lovely Vicki at The Pickledish Patch…..pop on over to get yours.


Off to catch up on some more rainy jobs while the weather is still lovely and cool!!!!

xox sugary hugs :o)

I'm SO glad it arrived in one piece! I was worried about that part. =) Enjoy it. Your choices for the ladies were outstanding. I look forward to seeing your next block from Vignette.

I do love my fabrics and the sweet extras too, thank you again...

We have not had rain for over 110 days now... I shudder to think of how I will react if it ever does come!!
