She Did It Again!

Yessir, she sure did!!

I am talking about Cathy.  You all remember who Cathy is, right? She is my fabric fairy!  Whenever she decides to clean out her stash, she asks me if I want a box of fabric.  Difficult to say no to that!!!  It all started back in 2009 when she was having a giveaway...back when Allegra (that would be My Sweet Little Honey-Do Princess Allegra) was sick and just before she died. Cathy fell in love with Allegra and somehow, I ended up winning the giveaway!  Since then, Cathy has sent several more boxes my way.  And, though I have a few shelves piled high with the fabrics from her, I want you to know that I have, indeed, used the fabrics she has given me to make several quilts (ranging in size from doll quilts to lap quilts), tote bags, zipper pouches, kleenex cozies, etc., etc.. 

So, yesterday was a very Happy Mail Day!!!  I received not one, but TWO large flat rate boxes in the mail.  They were stuffed full...heavy, too! 

Here are the contents from box 1...

And, this is all from box 2...

Box 2 had several works-in-progress.  Those are always fun!!

My sewing room is currently very much in a state of disarray.  The frenetic energy involved with Christmas gift sewing does it every year.  Too busy being creative to put things away when I am done with them...ya know?  I have been intending to spend some (a LOT of) time straightening and rearranging.  Now, for sure, that is high on my list of things to do.  

Getting a box from Cathy is always an adventure for me...usually full of fabrics that I do not have, and fun projects to finish, etc.  

"For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.". Jeremiah 29:11

Oh Wow, what a great friend. You will have so much fun with your new stash additions. (For some reason the photos are not showing up for me but I am imaging all the beautiful fabrics)

Fun stuff! Sometimes a fabric refresher is what we need to get that sew space tidied for sewing! :-)

This is a sure way to jump start a creative project I think! How generous!
