I love getting packages in the mail but I always forget to share them on the blog for whatever reason! Hoping to be better about it in 2013.
First up is not a mail package but I had to share it nonetheless – this is a wool candle mat given to me by Mary Jo from The Quilt Bear when we had dinner on Saturday. I love it so much! I still haven’t found the perfect place for it in my sewing room.
I recently put in an order for an assortment of 14″ zippers so I could do more pouches, totes and pillowcovers. I found a great company that’s based in the US and had good prices for zippers in bulk. They have several assortments available to choose from for various zipper types. I ordered the 50 piece Light Weight YKK Zipper Assortment
They will be put to good use I’m sure.
Lastly, my bundle from Fat Quarter Shop came in! A whole bunch of us on Twitter put in a 12 lb scrap box order at the same time so it’s been fun seeing what everyone got. I love digging through the box and looking at each piece. I get sad when I make it to the bottom of the box, it’s like Christmas is over.
This assortment was really different than the first. I got some 10″ squares of fabric along with lots of yardage. A good assortment of polkadots and Civil War repos. I’ve already rehomed the Civil War fabric since it would just collect dust in my closet (very thankful for my Twitter friends that helped me find a good home!).
I’m thinking next time I’ll order the 12 lb Fabric Panel box from Fat Quarter Shop and see what I get.
