More goodies in the mail!

Like I said yesterday lots
came in the mail this last few weeks.
 Firstly was a gorgoeous Little Encouragment Gift
( an embroidered door hanger/book mark)
with a card from my dear friend Jenny
then came a Layer Cake of PURE
 Just gorgeous for making a belated Wedding Quilt
 It is for my Son who recently got married.
 I was so unsure of what fabric to use until I saw this... just perfect
 And what design?????
 I think I will do another Schnibbles quilt..
they come together so quickly.
 And the fabric colors are perfect for a couple
 who wanted browns, beige and blues...
In their new home.

I then received this box of threads....
 Have you heard of Wonderfil????
 I discovered them at the Machine Quilters extravaganza...
 Barrie ( NZ distributer)was there with these amazing threads.
 They are called 'Fruiti' and are a 12ply variegated thread.
 just prefect for machine blanket stitch
 and other decorative stitches.
 I can't wait to start using them...
I have the perfect quilt to use them on
 But first I must quilt a friends quilt for her today!..LOL
 Happy Stitching
 Sweet Cinnamon-y Hugs
