Good snail mail!


I was so excited to receive this little package.  I signed up for this subscription, Mr. B’s Preview Pack from Benartex ($29/year – no affiliation) because I thought sample fabric with a little magazine could be fun.   He is a real person -Selim Benardete -founder and President Emeritus of Benartex.  WOW!  I love this fabric and I believe I could make this quilt with what I have (except borders and background).  That is a pretty good deal and I love blues and teals.  SOLD.


Then there was this.  A quick quilt to make and not 1 but 2 copies of Patchwork Pocket Planner.  I think it came from PatchworkPosse/International Association of Quilters as a little thank you.  No, really, I thank them for the opportunity to champion a project (you can see more about it here).


Last, but not least, was more fabric and patterns!  I won this from Persimon Dreams as part of the #missingmarket campaign on Instagram.  I really want to make this funky Dresden house  pattern….is it a dREAMi project????  We will see.

Who said there’s only junk in my mailbox!  I am a happy camper!

PS:   This just arrived from Stitch Stash Diva (no affiliate) my selection from a gift certificate I won (thanks Sandra!)exgg2vyfSFOA9gAMOUd6ag

    A LOT of fun mail here, Kathleen!!! This will make for a lot of Dreami projects in your future. Love the teals, indigos and the dresden houses.

      I can just see all those Dreami projects sneaking in….I love the pattern for the 10” squares – that could be a keeper.

    So much fun mail! Congrats on your winnings, I won the same gift cert from Stitch Stash Diva and am eagerly awaiting my package. I also considered the Benartex monthly subscription…very tempting 🙂

      Great minds think alike! I am pleased with the Benartex package – nice for a benefit quilt and a nice way for me to get that fabric fix I miss from the store I worked in. Stash Stitch came fast – so nice!

      It was truly a delight, and there’s more to come, the Island Batik box may arrive today – but I won’t be with it until a week from Monday.

      It is fun to get mail – and so much fun when they are from a giveaway.
