I have received some absolutely fantastic mail lately and I wanted to share.
First, some FQ's I received from this swap:
Then, at Sewing Mamas, I am involved in a Queen of the Month swap. During your birthday month, you receive 11 gifts from other mamas. During the other months, you send to the other queens. I received my first gift yesterday:
From this Etsy seller. She has some great stuff in her shop. Love the colors and the design. Thanks Amanda! It is good to be the queen!
And I bought this for myself for my birthday:
From Etsy seller Purseona. It is soooo well made and just absolutely beautiful. Rashmi's customer service was wonderful and I definitely will be a repeat buyer. I am currently drooling over this (love that bird fabric! I have a thing for birds lately) and this. You can also visit Rashmi at her website.
I picked up some fun stuff at a Borders in Atlanta. I have a Borders no where near me, and they had some stuff I was looking for.
This is a very inspiring book. I have never made a quilt before, but I am determined to make one for my living room. Currently, I can't decide between this:
and I also got Marie Claire Idees, something I have read about in the blogging world forever. I love it!! It has such beautiful, inspiring pics:
and I must try my hand at a suitcase one day:
and a gorgeous necklace:
Makes me want to get crafty, but alas, Brice is moving into a new office this weekend and I must help. I guess it's a good thing though since I won't have 24 guys showing up here everyday. I don't know if I have mentioned before, but Brice started his own business about a year ago. At the time, we had 2 employees counting him. In less than a year, we have 24! God has truly blessed us! I was scared out of my mind this time last year, wondering if this crazy thing was gonna work! I do all the paperwork, and that takes a lot of time, but in the next few weeks, I will be replaced. I have never been so happy to lose a job. I like helping and all, but it's getting to be a little much and a little over my inexperienced head. So-pray I'll make it through the next few days in an un-air conditioned shop moving stuff. I am starting to feel hot already.....
