Mail Call

Today is the first day of summer, and we have the hot hot hot weather to go with it. My car registered the outside temperature at 115 degrees today while we were out running errands. When we returned home (and glad to be back in a cool house), a package had arrived in the mail from Catherine at Calidore.

Yeah! My prize from Catherine's 700th post giveaway is here! The ribbon is so pretty!

Isn't the bag cute?! I love it! And inside it are brochures of Swan Hill Region.

Thank you, Catherine!

I'm enjoying learning a bit more of Australia and hoping that one day I will get to visit there. :o)

Another mail that came in earlier in the week is this fabric from my sister-in-law, Susan. Isn't it a "happy" fabric?

Recently, Susan asked me to help her because had purchased 25 yards of fabrics and wanted to learn how to quilt! You know what?... Of course, I said yes!

So we decided that her first quilt would be Bonnie's Boxy Stars pattern. And you know what else? I'm doing this one too! My quilt will be the colors in this fabric except for the yellow.
Susan just started a blog called Ape over Quilting. I hope you pop over to her blog to welcome her to quilting and blogging.

One more thing that came in the mail this week is this toy Featherweight machine that I scored for the first time on ebay. :-)

Sweetie Pie will help me try it out this weekend.

Have a great one!

Looks like it's been a good week, lots of pretty things, and a new quilter to teach.
