A Squishy Package

I believe it was Bonnie Hunter at Quiltville who first introduced me to the concept of “squishy” packages that come in the mail.  My squishy souvenir package from our Alaska trip has arrived.  Most of the quilts I saw in the shops I visited used fabrics that had wildlife motifs.  They were beautiful and cozy looking, but this kit using shades of blue to capture the look of the glaciers we had seen earlier in the week caught my heart.  The purple/lavender cuts were last minute additions to the flat rate envelope.  I hope at least one of them will help fill in the gaps for my Strips that Sizzle project.

I visited our library Thursday and picked up a Dana Stabenow audio book.  I discovered her Kate Shugak series of mysteries that are set in Alaska when Amazon offered one free for Kindle owners.  I hadn't read mysteries for years and now I'm hooked on them.
