Betty (of Bettyninja fame) and I decided to do a fabric stash swap so we could get rid of some of our overages and gain new pieces of fabric without having to spend any money. She said she probably wouldn’t be able to mail my package to me until she got back from San Francisco (she’s there now), so I was quite surprised and thrilled to see a box waiting for me on Monday.
Betty went above and beyond the minimum quantity and dimensions we agreed upon, and I love every single piece. It’s a very eclectic mix of fabrics that I’m certain I’ll use.
But the best part was the little something extra that she included with the fabric as a complete surprise.
Tied to the pile of fabrics was a stunning vintage necklace that I’ve already worn twice. I love it! It’s something I would have picked out myself.
Last night was supposed to be my Quilting III class at Joann Fabrics, but it got cancelled because I was the only one who signed up for it. I’m disappointed, but they transferred me to another class in May which starts the week after my knitting class. May is also my birthday and Mother’s Day, so it’s going to be a busy month.
Thanks to all of you who left comments in my last post about your design process. It’s interesting to me how everyone approaches the same basic task so differently.
