Success!

Fat Quarter Swap - Come and join in


Sooooooo I finally got everyone's emails out for the Fat Quarter swap! You should have received an email from me with your swap partner. Sorry it took so long but I have been at the doctors office for 2 whole days with my daughter (seriously 5 plus hours a day). Mystery illness, lots of tests, but still no diagnosis. I will be there again on Monday so hopefully we will find out what is wrong, there is only so much crankiness and lack of sleep that I can take! lol.

I have had some great success with buying fabric online, mostly on Etsy. I was nervous to buy online without having seen the fabric myself, but all is well. I mostly bought Park Slope by Erin McMorris, I think it will be my next Quilting Bee fabric.

success with online shopping


I won my first blog giveaway!!!! The Fabric Shopper is such a great site. These were the scraps that I received, I love them.

fabric scraps I won!


Now I have to think of my next project!

Got my email - thanks so much for organizing this!

Hope your daughter gets better - I can only imagine how mind-numbing all the doctor visits are...

And finally, I'm really hoping those fabrics go to Pieced Together ;) Because they looks super fun to play with! My fav etsy shop is Fabricworm - her pictures seem to be a very accurate color representation - plus she ships from CA, so you'll get your order next day!

Thanks, Darci, for organizing the fabric swap. That was no small task. I got your e-mail, and will be sending out my fabric soon. I'm anxious to read my new friend's blog, too. I hope Gwenie feels better soon - there's nothing worse than a sick child. Love you, elaine
