I had hoped for a long fall. Spring lasted to the first week in August. Rain, and the resultant mosquitoes, made being outside unpleasant. Then we had two weeks of Summer. Fall began the last week in August. I had hoped it would last until at least the end of November as recompense for the Spring. Instead we have snow and lower than normal temperatures.
But yesterday did have some wonderful things happening. I received my package from the Fat Quarter Shop. Now I have the pattern for the November Schnibble and a jelly roll cake of Kansas Winter for the pattern--it will be a Thanksgiving Picnic.
AND I received the book "40 Fabulous Quick-Cut Quilts" by Evelyn Sloppy from Amazon. It has the pattern for the red and white snowball quilt challenge. Yeah, now I can start that too!
AND I got some off-white and cream fabric prints I had ordered from Christa's Quilts for the fabric swap. I spent the afternoon washing, ironing, cutting and packaging the fabric to send off to my 7 swap buddies. They (packages not the swap buddies) are all sent off today to their new homes. I know that Sinta has already sent out hers so I should start receiving mine anytime. Whoooo Hoooo!
