Mail Call and Giveaway(s)!

 Look what came in the mail yesterday!  Yes, my order from Stitchin' Heaven.  I had never ordered from this shop before, but, I am very pleased with my service from them.  Everything was carefully packed.  They also sent me a free fat quarter that matches the fabrics that I ordered.  Nice ladies!

 I checked out their 'sale' area and found these great fabrics.  I love stripes, but, I seldom use them except for borders.  I thought I could use these fabrics for some of my Quilts of Valor quilts.  They will make fun center stars for spiderweb quilts.

 I keep hearing about 'Qtools Sewing Edge' and I decided to try it out.  I have several treadle sewing machines, and, not nearly enough 1/4" feet for all of them.  I also saw these cute scissors.  I wanted a pair of the blue scissors, but, they called and told me that they were out of them.  I picked the green instead.  I guess I'll just have to win the blue pair over at Stray Stitches giveaway, along with the really cute table runner kit.  If you enter, tell her I sent you.
I also ordered these two magazines.  I keep seeing the Quiltmakers 100 Blocks on other blogs, so, I decided that I needed a copy for myself.  The McCall's Perfect for Precuts magazine is not for me.  It is for a friend in Australia.  We are having a magazine swap.  She gets this, and I get the Australian Blue magazine that is featuring Bonnie Hunter.  I have to get this one in the mail.

There is a Texas Statewide Quilt Shop Hop for the month of September.  Quilt Across Texas!  It includes 89 Fabulous Quilt Shops.  Since I get to be in Texas in September, I'll have to check it out.  My poor hubby!  Oh well, maybe they will have a hobby shop near the quilt shops.  Gotta keep him happy!

Don't forget to sign up for my first ever giveaway!  Make sure you sign up on the correct post!
