The only thing better than the first issue of a new quilting magazine is receiving free fabric in the mail at the same time! This month, I’m the “Queen” in a fat quarter swap. There are 12 members, myself included, and each month we send a fat quarter to that month’s ‘Queen’. GoinDSCN1444g to the mailbox to check the mail has never been as exciting as it has been this past week, for the odds are quite good that there’ll be a bit of fabric in the box for me.

This is my first two fat quarters–in one of my favorite colors–teal! I’ll receive another nine fat quarters over the next week. I have my shopping all done for the other members of the swap, and the envelopes are all addressed and ready to be mailed out each month. I hope the other members are as happy with what I’ve chosen for them as I am with what I’m receiving.

Meanwhile, I’m still working at pressing and trimming up the scraps I received from a woman here in town.  These are very usable scraps, and I’m grateful to receive thDSCN1481em.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Be safe, be well, and please be happy. Be sure to tell those you love that you love them.

About tehachap

The easiest way to define myself is as a very happily married woman with two sons and two grandsons. My hobbies include reading, writing, sewing, trains (watching, photographing and running them in G scale), and travel. My husband and I are retired and we spend our winters in Arizona. I used to own a secretarial and desktop publishing business, but closed it when my husband retired in 1999. We have truly enjoyed our retirement years, and have fulfilled one of our primary goals in life and that is to own a home overlooking train tracks so we can watch trains 24/7. We are sincerely blessed in this life.

    This is wonderful. I’ve sort of ground to a halt on the one I am working on….too empty.
