BEST . MAIL . DAY . EVER

Get ready for me to blow your mind. You know it's going to be a good day when you come home to 5 envelopes of various sizes that all have the "look". You know the look I mean. The soft, fabric-inside look.

So, without further ado, the goods!

Amanda and I did a private swap of some fabric and a sewn item. I'm trying not to feel too inferior, but her fabric and pillow cover are WAY BETTER than what I sent her. I owe her big time at Market! :) I'm not happy with what happened to the colors when I made the mosaic with Big Huge Labs. :( You all know how bright and happy Flea Market Fancy are! Such a cute little fox and hedgie!
Pillow from Amanda - better pictures!

Here's what I made her. A pillow and a clock:

Next up: my {Urban} Home Goods Swap from Lori! I received these awesome pot holders, a Single Girl mini quilt, and a cute hedgie block that I think is destined to become a pin cushion. Her hand stitching and color choices are just to die for in person. Again, Big Huge Labs pooped on the color. The originals are in my photostream.

Still more!

2 beautiful blocks from Lynette in the Fresh & Funky Bee. I am so excited about how this quilt is going to look!

Also, some fabric from Fabric.com. I'm slowly building a It's a hoot stash and trying to pick up some Park Slope.

And lest you think that I never sew, here's my sample block (in my colors) for the 3x6 Bee. I'm a good way through the others, which is good since I have to send them tomorrow!
