Large, Non-Squishy Box in the Post

I received an AMAZINGLY WONDERFUL, MOST GENEROUS GIFT in the Post.

See - a LARGE flat rate USPS box, weighing in at NINE POUNDS!!!

Nine pounds of what??

Nine Pounds of BATIKS!!!




Fellow blogger, Teresa Rawson, from  Fabric Therapy held her 2nd Annual Epic Quilter Sale recently.  Because of my surgery, I couldn't drive over to Michigan for it. Totally bummed out, I wished Teresa well but lamented my inability to attend.  Teresa and her two friends, took it upon themselves to stuff a box full of amazing, wonderful batiks and send it off to me!!! 

My heart is full of gratitude at their generosity!!  I had the best time unpacking the box - 1 beautiful piece of fabric at a time. Each one was my favorite until I saw the next piece.

There is some serious yardage here. How much yardage equals nine pounds, you ask??  Thirty-three yards of batik! OMG - talk about stash enhancement!

LOVE the color range.  I desperately needed purples and light values, along with some rich neutrals. And you know I LOVE blues & greens! These girls covered it all!

DH has been busy washing and folding everything before it goes into the stash. I just have to find some drawer space for it all. Then, I will be busy designing some new projects incorporating the new colors!

THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!!!!
