In The Mail...

A few days ago, I received a box of linen.
oh, I do love me some linen!
black, redwood, meadow (very, turtle green, dress blue, tawny port

On that same day, I received the fabric
that sister Joyce and I (with Ashley)
chose using FaceTime.  
(first mentioned back here)

And, as if that wasn't enough fabric...
in today's mail 

I received another box from Cathy.

It's been 5 years since I first 
ran across Cathy's blog (click here).
Five years since I won her first box of 'scraps'.
Five years of calling her my friend. 

It is always great fun to open one of Cathy's boxes.
In this box, I knew there would be some
already made small doll heads.
Here they are...

I have something definite in mind for these...
I hope to work on them very soon.

The rest of the medium flat-rate box
was filled with fabric.
And, what fun fabrics they are! 

                      Here's the stack of small-sized pieces...

The stack of medium-sized pieces...

Look at the fun prints!
These are the large-sized pieces...

*alert**cuteness factor**alert*
red corduroy with embroidered gingerbread men...

And, look at this cute floral corduroy!

                         All of this in a medium flat-rate box.

Thank you so very much, Cathy! 

**Excuse me, but I must go and play with all this new fabric.

It looks like you have lots of wonderful fabrics to work with. I need to get going and start sewing on my machine, but puppies sure do take up a lot of my time;)
