I Love Goodies in the Mail!

Well today was a stellar mail day for moi!

I got home from a bunch of appts with my mom and there were a stack of packages at the front door :)

My pincushion from Darlene's birthday giveaway was here. I just love it!!! It's made using some of the Celebrate Spring fabrics and I love those fabrics!

I also received 2 new Jelly Rolls (In the Pink 2 and Allspice Tapestry) as well as a pattern for scissor cases, a purse insert pattern, a book with several purse and tote bag patterns, a book on Fat Quarter Quilts (need to use up some of these recently purchased FQs) and Eleanor Burns' Still Stripping book (need some fun patterns for 2.5" strips with all these Jelly Rolls I've been buying).

So even though I bought some fabrics strips, I purchased several patterns that will help me to use up some of my stash :) I sure hope it works!
I have also been doing a little here and there on the quilty front. I finished the applique portion of my block for a theme applique swap I joined. I just need to do a little embroidery on it and it will be ready to be sent out. I'll post a pic when it's completely finished :)
Thanks for visiting!

The jelly rolls look good enough to eat! The Portapocket pattern looks really interesting. Look forward to seeing what you make with all your goodies :)
