Being an avid 'fabric-stroker' I entered every contest going during 'I'm a Ginger Monkey's International Stashbusting Day' and I even got to win! The very lovely Kylie chose my name to be the recipient of a HUGE bag of charm squares.
I have already used 9 of the pink ones in a lap quilt for one of my ex-borrowed terences. Just the binding left now.
Some few days ago I was swimming through all the fabulous blogs over on Ric-Rac's blogroll and Sew-Mama-Sew was showing off gorgeous new fabrics.
Are these not the most fabulous and joyous of monkeys??
Now not only did Missus Stashbasket send a fabulous collection of wools as a prize in the first Trash Raffle but she included some of her (now internationally famous) homemade fudge. Imagine my delight when some arrived up here on top of the hill in its neatly wrapped wax paper.
Well there was some in there when I started to take that picture!!
And when Kitty's gorgeous sock monkey girlie arrived here en route to her new home there was a second parcel along side her. The terences and CK purloined the bob straight away so no pictures but oh looky here what I got to keep!
Today is International Women's Day and Purple Paisley organised a F.Q. swap in the colours of the suffragettes - green, white and purple. My swap partner was the very lovely Quiltygal who had also been my pincushion Secret Swap giver last year. And OH! feast your eyes on the delights she sent me.
Look! White HUGE ricrac, beautiful 2" white cotton lace and some sweet star ribbon on a reel. And then that fabric!! There are two fat quarters, one a lilac background covered in white stars the other a soft green also starred. But wait! What is that I spy at the background of the picture? Only a metre of the coolest personalised fabric in the world.
Miss Quilty herself suggested it might like to become a bag. I think she may be right ;-)
