More 1930's!!!!

I've had a few really great mail days!!! I've gotten four different packages of 1930's fabrics. I still can't believe how generous quilters are! Thanks so much to everyone!!! I sure am getting excited about making my 1930's quilt. It's going to be so pretty and girly!! Perfect for a day of reading my Mitford books. Which by the way, I am loving!!!!

These fabrics were from Grace - thank you so much!!

These are from Margaret - thanks again!!

These are from Sheila - thank you!!

And these are from Wendy - I still can't believe you sent me all the FQs!! Thanks so much!!

Hi again!

I'm finally posting again. It's been alittle while & I'm sorry about that. Things are busy around here as always! Ashley's basketball team won their game on Saturday. They are still undefeated!!! YEA!! :) Ashley is such a great player and Tom is such a great coach. And of course I'm such a great "cheerleader"!

I started a new book today. It's the first book in the "Mitford Years" series by Jan Karon. I started "At Home in Mitford" today & am now on chapter four. My mom has been recommending these books for a long time & I'm finally getting started on them. So far I'm liking them alot. I think Mitford sounds like a great place to live! I wonder if there are any little towns like that left in America. Everything seems so overpopulated with people & stores anymore. I yearn for the simple life.

I've been working on string blocks as well as other stuff. I really like doing the string blocks because they are so mindless. I can just sew and sew. The design when they are all put together is so neat too! Here is a picture of some I"m working on. And here is a picture of some finished blocks.

OH.....and guess what one of my wonderful internet friends sent me....... a whole envelope full of 1930's fabrics. I am so excited to get started on this quilt!! I've got a few other friends that are sending me some 30's scraps as well. It's going to be such a neat quilt when I get it finished. Thanks so much Ellen!
