Happy mailbox!

Diana sent me these beauties! A huge piece of purple princesses for Violas quilt! That print is perfect! She loves it to pieces and has asked me non-stop when I am going to sew her quilt! Lol!

The silver-stars are for Asks quilt. The print is beautiful, and it will add some wonderful sparkle to his Rocket Man quilt.

The bag of safety-pins made me LOL :D
A while ago I was sewing a pair of velour sweatpants for Viola -the only kind of pants she will wear- and when I was going to add the elastic to the waistband I couldn't find my safety-pin. I only had ONE safety-pin at the time, and I was really not happy it was lost. So thank you Diana, for sending me some :D

Katy from I'm a Ginger Monkey asked if I needed more scraps to make the stars for Asks quilt, and I have used up a lot (most) of my scraps sewing for the holidays, so I happily accepted her generous offer. And look what she sent me! Thank you Katy! I am so grateful for these, and I am so motivated to sew more stars now!
These are most of the scraps. They are perfect! Beautiful! Only most of them are here because Viola started picking out her favourites right away :)
This is one of her favourites....the pink matryoshkas. I am going to save that to put in a scrappy pillowcase for her :) She will like that.
And this is what she did with all those scraps she picked out....she laid them out on her I SPY and said "Look mom, I am making a quilt for you!"
Is that sweet or what?!

Katy said...

she's so cute!
I was glad to help - obviously a lot of them are 'girly' scraps, but I was thinking of Viola too when i went for the blind grab!!

Very sweet, and smart, too! Four years old and she knows just what to do with fabric. You taught her well. :>}

That's such a great gift. I'm looking forward to seeing more of those lovely wonky stars - the rocket quilt is going to be great. And you are so lucky to have your own little fabric consultant in Viola too - that girl really sees the point of all that fabric :-)

Dana said...

So lovely Tine! Your daughter has lovely taste in fabric and what marvellous friends you have.

LOL too at your safety pin problem. I've had times like that and even resorted to taking the nappy pin from the bandages in the medical drawer to get the job done. :-)

Lovely fabric and I remember the safety pin incident, how funny and kind to think of you.

Marie said...

How sweet! I think she might be crafty and creative just like her mom!
