Neat things come in small packages!

I’ve been getting some really neat squishy packages lately. 

There have, of course, been the on-going stash enhancements including this charm kit of 200 batik squares from a sale recently offered by Wanda at Exuberant Color.  She labeled this a starter kit for a colorwash project.  I figured with all the batik remnants my Jane Stickle project is generating; I’ll be able to fill in any gaps.

And a really neat package arrived from Sunny at Quilting Dreams  last week.  Here is what she sent me for our first mug rug exchange.  Since it’s entirely reversible, I made a collage showing both sides.  She even included some biscotti!

Here is what I sent her.  If you guess that we were working with an autumn theme, you’re right!  In my haste to get this in the mail, I forgot to take a picture, and she kindly let me copy it from her blog.


Be sure and check back here this Friday.  I will be posting about my first (and maybe only) ever giveaway to commemorate a couple of blog milestones.

Until then, keep stitching!

What beautiful mug rugs for fall! Wasn't Wanda's starter kit wonderful, I can't wait to try my first color wash wallhanging with these!

Love Wanda's fabric squares... I think I spent an hour playing with them... examining each one!
