Mail Call

A couple fun things arrived in my mailbox recently. I was lucky enough to win two give a-ways!

I have to say that I LOVE QuiltMaker magazine! I actually have a subscription for QuiltMaker magazine. The quilts they show just speak to me. They also have a blog that I follow which is where I won this magazine. I've already picked out a couple quilts that I will be starting soon. One of them is the one on the front cover. I never thought I would actually go for the 30's fabric but I find that I really like the colors. They are bright but not glaring and the prints are fun.

I also won some selvages from the Selvage Blog. Once again I thought I would never collect selvages but now I find myself actually looking at them and saving them. I need to learn to stop saying never I guess.

I love the acorns and stockings on these selvages. I wonder if the manufacturers are starting to pay more attention to what they put on their selvages since they know how many people are saving and trading them now?

How fun!!! I agree with you about the salvages but now it looks like it might be fun.


Oh happy day for your winnings!!!
I never did the salvage thingy either until recently--now I have a drawer full!!!! Now to find time to do something with them!!!
Hugs, Di
