I do believe I promised you spinning today
but then THIS was waiting for me at the Post Office this morning and I just KNEW you'd all want to see the goodies.In amongst the usual letters and bills was
a McCall's quilt mag from my '06 Christmas pressie from Linda.
Poor Linda spent a lot of time calling and emailing them about my sub which finally started showing up in June or July. I kept telling her it was ok but I know that she wasn't happy with their customer service. So long as I get the full year's worth of mags, it's cool.
Knit Picks circ from Donni
Gorgeous black fabric from Honeysuckle Patchwork for the Japanese crane quilt. One of my students had some with her last week and even though I thought that I had all the fabrics I needed for that quilt,it turned out that I was sooooooooo wrong - this just added a certain something.
I probably needed about 20 - 25 cm, so I rang up and ordered a metre [ as you would, right? ]
... and that's a kokeshi doll bought on ebay
then there was some yarn I needed to finish a hat that I'd swapped some Bendy cotton for
and a late Christmas/ birthday parcel from the other Linda [ Ohio Linda, sadly blogless ]
it contained two yards of this
and a pack of 19 x 1/4 yd cuts of 'feline fabric' - not sure why the pinks were considered cat fabric but who cares? that is almost 5 yards - or 4.3 metres !!! Linda almost always sends me fabrics that she doesn't think I'm likely to impulse buy for myself but that I will probably need to have in the stash for 'one day'
PLUS a McKenna Ryan pattern
It was almost too much to cope with, but the fabrics have all been patted, cat tested and washed - and I just realised that they're still out on the line at 9pm so I'd better go get 'em in - we actually have rain forecast.
