The other day I came home to find a package from Vicki Welsh propped by my front door. I chortled with glee as I ripped open the package, which I knew contained a bunch of hand dyed Catena fabric scraps I had won on Vicki’s blog. Somehow she had managed to stuff all this fabric in a USPS priority mail envelope! I’m impressed at her stuffing abilities since three days ago I barely fit two small (tiny even) quilts in the same size mailing envelope.
What especially delighted me were all these moody payne’s gray scraps. I hope to make a quilt depicting moonlight reflected on clouds so these bits of fabric will be a great starting point. I’ve been contemplating a gradient in these colors that Vicki offers in her Etsy shop.
But wait, there’s more. Here’s a large pile of fabric rectangles Vicki had sewn together but hadn’t used. And another pile of rectangles that hadn’t been sewn.
Then there are narrow strips of all sorts of colors. What a range!
And, if that weren’t enough for one day, I happened to stop by the Friends of the Library shop and lucked into these two books, which cost me a total of $1.60, including tax. I don’t think the Deb Karasik book had ever been opened.
Yup, if fabric is involved it’s easy to make me happy. Thanks for making my day, Vicki.
