Fat Quarterly Issue 7 is out now! All about colour palettes and where to find help in choosing colours for your projects.

Poor Postman

Almost every day this week the doorbell has rung and our chirpy postman has brought me some new goodies! Fabric for the quilting bees, the spring swap, a giveaway I was lucky to win and some sneaky Japanese fat quarters I bought as an early birthday present to myself.

Just look what the lovely Joanne, from a Little Patch of Heaven, sent me for the Spring Swap, organised by Darci.

Some Easter fabric panels!

Some flower buttons, yellow ribbon, green ribbon with hens on, 2 lovely fat quarters, 2 curly wurlys and what you don't see here is the big bag of Maltesers - they disappeared pretty quickly ;-)

Joanne very sweetly included little packages for both my girls. Inside was a Kinder Egg and a tissue holder. It goes without saying that the girls loved the eggs! But I was a little surprised to see how much they adored the tissue holders! Amelie insisted on taking hers to Kita to show all her friends and Hanna spent the whole day taking the tissues out and trying to stuff them back in again. Thank you so much Joanne that was so sweet of you.

Jacqui, of Hazelnuts had a giveaway and when the random generator came up with the number 7 two times in a row she thought it was a bit dodgy and decided to have a third go! This time it was my lucky number! Thank you very much Jacqui. The fabrics are gorgeous. I already have plans for the pink coriander and I have fallen in love with the grey and yellow print. Not my usual colour tastes but I REALLY like it!

Oh, you just gotta love the postman :-)

I had one good swap for the spring one, one a bit disappointing :-(

I had Jacqui from Hazelnuts for the Sew Mama Sew swap, and I got lovely fabric from her too, She has very good taste!!!

That gray and yellow is lovely. I'm loving a lot of gray fabrics right now.

So funny to see the fabric up on someone else's blog :) Glad you're enjoying it.

The easter bunny I made is up on my blog at long last - http://hazelnutgirl.blogspot.com/2009/03/easter-bunny.html

Oh happy mail is the best kind of mail there is! Love that fabric, and I'm having an odd chocolate craving...
