Thank You USPS

I think that quilters are the only thing keeping the US Postal Service viable.

After admiring and following Deborah at The Blue Hare for the past year, I finally broke down and bought some of her hand dyed fabric that she blogs about at Quilt Routes and sells in her Etsy shop.    I'm not sure what I'm going to make yet...but I'm thinking of something with white that "tastes" like orange sorbet with Greek honey yogurt and fresh raspberries.

She won some batik charms in one of my give-aways and made this!  Check out more pictures of this amazing work on her blog. 
I was so excited to get a fabric post card with some of the scraplets coming back to my house!

My Harujion Design purse came yesterday!!!

Hiromi plans to blog about it, so here's just a sneak peak of the hand embroidered dragonfly!    She also has an Etsy shop where you can buy her work.

This was supposed to be my birthday present...but I'm claiming it for Mother's Day and have already moved all my junk into it.

Almost as exciting as the fabric-related purchases is my new, spill-proof key board.  Ever since the Syrah Debacle, I haven't been able to add, use decimals or enter using the number keyboard.    Some might argue that I could quit drinking wine while surfing quilt porn at night...but what's the fun in that?

Meanwhile, I'm still hand quilting the fur on my gigantic Charley Harper cat.  That process has become strange in that I have to quilt from the back side so I can see where I'm stitiching.

And I'm getting excited for Quilt Market.  I'll be helping Renae Allen of RGA Designs at her booth, and I scored tickets for the Bloggers Quilt Market Meetup at the Blue Lemon.  This is as much fun as last year when I connected with old high school friends via Face Book, then met up with a dozen of them over the summer when I was traveling!

Happy Mother's Day....I need to spend the rest of today deciding how I want to cash in on that holiday  (I've asked the cosmetologist daughter for a pedicure, but the DH and DD are still asking me what I want.)

Oh my love the "Some might argue that I could quit drinking wine while surfing quilt porn at night...but what's the fun in that?"...that is SO ME! Thanks for the smile today.
