Mail in and Mail out!

Today was the day to send off the Travelling Stash Box!  As it turns out, the winner, Marianne, lives within driving distance of me, so we decided to meet in person for the hand off.  Where did we meet, you ask?  Why a quilt shop, of course.  We spent an hour or so roaming around, looking at and touching fabric.  If I'm not mistaken, a small collection came home with each of us.  Then we went to lunch and sat and talked  for a couple of hours.  I'm so happy to have a new quilty friend!  I stopped at JoAnn's before I left town, too, and picked up a few crafty items. 

When I got home, there were THREE packages sitting at my front door.  First of all was a big box filled with my OASS Spring swap goodies from Vickie.
See the little flower?  It's a solar powered dancing flower.  And it works!  Brings a smile to my face.  The pincushion is a welcome addition to my collection.

How cute is this?
There was also a box of goodies that I won from Patty's giveaway.  She started with a little pouch, then added a book, the cutest little tiny pincushion,  some hexies and hexie papers, needle, buttons, etc.

this pincushion is tiny!  and oh so adorable.

look who showed up while I was staging the photo.
My third package was a partial order from 123 Stitch.  They send me an email every week, and I spend way too much money with them. 
Can't wait to stitch these.
Well, I guess I better get off this computer and get some stitching done.  Wait until you see what I did with these:
I hope to have pictures tomorrow.  And did I mention that I found another little quilt that uses hexies?  It's an addiction I tell you.

Counting my blessings....Sunny

  11. You have some lovely goodies there. I do love a good pincushion or two, or three, or four :D

    The book by Mac Lucado is a good one. His books are great and easy reading.

    Enjoy your weekend and how lovely that you have found a new quilt friend and not too far. Bonus!

  12. You are such a tease!! I can't wait to see what you did with the hexies and the new project! LOL

    Really nice gifts and items that you have been given and purchased. It's Christmas at Sunny's house! But the best gift was probably meeting Marianne.
