Lately in the mail

I have been receiving some nice little goodies from my friendly postman recently

i signed up for the Sue Daley 
"this goes with that"
BOM
from Kerry at



the package is fantastic, i received the first two months
as i signed up a little late
i received lots of papers


thread, needles


and all these super yummy fabrics

i am trying really hard to resist the temptation
of playing with these
(okay , okay i admit it, i have made one already)

i have a few deadlines which i really need to focus on
the least of which is my
which is now 6 days late

but thankfully it is all batted up and the label is on
so i am hoping to start quilting tonight . . . .



i also received this very  intriguing book
which explores the idea that quilts were used as signals
in the 
underground railway during
the American civil war
i love the history of quilts and am really interested in getting into this book

other than this not much happening down here
excepts lots of spring cleaning
mainly in my backyard
my pool now looks fit to swim in and most of the weeds in 
the garden beds have been
banished


hope your hands have been working on something that you love

Ciao

Ooh how pretty and fun!! That book looks very good - the history of quilts fascinates me too. I admit to being jealous of that pool...

What a lovely package....you'll love that English Paper Piecing, but beware, it's very addictive I've found!!!...lol...enjoy that interesting book....

Have fun with your new project...the book looks interesting... the underground railway quilts was the theme of one of the Elm Creek books which was intriguing so am interested to hear what you think of this one too..which of course will be more factual...
