Little Packages of Happiness!

I won this giveaway back in December from L7 Quilt Co. and waited impatiently patiently for the package to arrive. Michelle mailed it on December 30, 2009 and it arrived here on February 4th. The mail system never ceases to amaze me! DSC04945

But now the little darlings are here and I’ve taken precious moments out of my self-imposed hectic schedule to try and come up with a plan to use them. Has anyone out there opened one of these little packages and made something? If you have . . . let me know! I’d love to see what people are doing with them.

Thank you Michelle for pulling that extra name . . . I can’t wait to open one of these up and try something.

DSC04942 I finished all the machine quilting on these and have the binding ready to go. In my previous post, I had thought I would finish hand stitching the binding down this weekend, but since then I have decided to set them aside . . . I’m expecting to have to do some travelling in the next few weeks and these will be great projects to take along and work mindlessly on. Binding can be boring you know! These won’t be posted as completed PhD’s for a few more weeks . . . but they’re really close! Those blank white squares over in my sidebar will have to stay blank for a while longer.

Besides . . . that quilt on the right hand side of the photo needs some instructions written for it . . . that’s also a good project to work on during commercials at night . . . keeps the mind occupied. I LOVE this quilt and can’t wait to make another one . . . the instructions need tested after all – amazing what excuses I can come up with to start new things.

K – gotta run and start on the “new” project – have a great weekend!

You just never know with the mail, do you? I received a card from England posted on January 12, in my mailbox Jan 15! Half a world away! and then you get the flip side of it, things that just take forever :(
I love all those charm square packets you've received. I've just recently used charm squares and some yardage to create a really quick quilt top, inspired by Amanda Jean (CrazyMumQuilts), and this morning I've just been doodling a couple more layouts using charm squares. They are for baby quilts, but I'm hoping to get a couple more sewn together this week. Love how your PhDs are coming along, and I love that term! Good luck writing up your instructions, and hey, if you need a quilt tester...

Your Bunny Hill looks wonderful and the other quilt is just so darned pretty. Love your color choices!

Lucky You!! The little squares seem so exciting, so many possibilities.
I love the bunny hill quilt, I think it is the nicest one I have seen in blogland (must be the maple leaf!).♥
