Fun Mail




Fun mail today from Pam (mamaspark). My name was drawn for her 100th blog post giveaway. She sent three cute fabrics and an adorable kitty card. Jasper thinks it may be a relative of his. Thank you, Pam!

The second picture shows my first attempt at the free stitchery BOM that Bea at Capricorn Quilts is offering. I couldn't decide if I wanted some space between the stitches and who knew stitching a straight line wouldn't be easy? One thing I did learn was that I loved doing this. I think I'll do it again on a different color of fabric.

So if we start stitching with you, are you going to remind us about them monthly??? What size was the block????? Like I need another project -lol

Kim said...

Does this mean you are all well now? Healthy? Feeling up to par? I love the stitching. It's adorable. I doubt I'm ready for anything like that yet...but I'll get there eventually.
Cold enough here in MI for you? I'm so ready for spring and opening the windows again....

Your stitchery is great! I have been wanting to start that project too and just haven't had time. Have to stitch the butterfly antennae first!!

Great that you are taking part too.
Your first block is lovely and you are right, I find sewing a straight line is harder than sewing a curvy one! Tomorrow the next block comes out! Take care.

I love the little stitchery. Thanks so much for posting the link to her blog. I'm going to have a go at it, too, later on.

Wonderful mail goodies :o) And great stitching! Yes, a straight line is hard to stitch *lol*

Jan said...

Your block looks so nice--you did a great job--I've looked at that several times--you've convinced me I need to do that!!!

Paula said...

I haven't had time to stitch the block, but I have printed it. Would you PLEASE remind us when the next one is ready. (I've already printed February too!) Can't wait to get started.
