Mail Goodies

This week my mailbox has been busy!

This is what I receivd it the 'Wishing it were Spring' FQ Swap. It was hosted by Stitches and Scissors and I was partnered with Sarah.

This was what I received as part of a destash swap with a fellow flickr member, Nancey. The blue on the left is so awesome so soft fleece, but better quality than I have ever seen at Joanns. It will be great for lining baby shoes! The polka dot fabric will make some cute baby shoes as well :)

I received this package as part of the Flickr Fat Quarter Swap, three lovely fat quarters, some silk fabric covered buttons, a fabric magnent, and some stationary and note cards. I just love the polka dots, they were my fav in the package. I received some ribbon swaps too this week, just small envy swaps though, if you want to see them you can check out my flickr swap set here.
Best of all this week:
My new sewing Machine!!! This is my birthday present, since them shipping was estimated at three weeks, which would have been right around my birthday. It cam from Joanns is about 5 days! It is factory refurbished, and has 120 stitches I think.. maybe it has more.. I am still trying to get the hang of it, having a little computer in my machine is a bit different! I have been trying to get the tension right and have been playing around with the alphabet stitches a bit, but I havent really had much time. It will be so nice to have a nice machine to rely on :)
'Easter Bunny Children's Swap' signups start tomarrow!
And I am still having a sale on my crayon booklets in my shop! They are 2 for $20, and I have 10 available still!

I just bought both of the flannel dots you received in the swap.

They are so soft. One I'll use for a receiving blanket and the other for trim on pjs.
