Sandy and I do a lot of mailing back and forth through the U.S. Postal Service (USPS). Since she lives in Upstate New York and I live in Central Ohio, it’s really the best (and least expensive!!!) way for us to pass projects back and forth.
Look what she just sent me! It was a big box of fabric for a project we started in August. I am a huge fan of all these beautiful grays, yellows, golds and creams. This box not only made my day, it made me the USPS October Fan of the Month!
Truth be told, Sandy hit a creative wall while trying to work out a new pattern design. I jumped at the chance to give it a try because the combination of these colors and fabrics will provide me with a great cold weather project.
Then, as luck would have it, I was at the Red Rooster Quilt Shop with my dear friend, MJ, when I stumbled across a scrap pack that had the same large floral fabric along with some other gray, black, yellow and cream fabrics. What a find!
Sandy, I’m working on it, I promise!
Well, I mean at least the fabric is out of the box and Norma has given it her sniff of approval!

Hi Cindy! Oh, that scrap pack is just perfect with the matching colors/tones. How lucky was that?!! Now I’m wondering when we might expect this gem to be finished?? It’s already three months old . . . just sayin’. ~smile~ Roseanne
Haha, you’re right! I need to get sewing ASAP…gem by New Year’s (maybe)!
I’m mad at that fabric! I hope you can help me get over it!
Oh, that fabric is gorgeous. Red Rooster Quilt Shop, as in Red Rooster fabrics? The shop looks wonderful, and your little fabric bundle from there is perfect!
Red Rooster Quilt Shop is not the same as Red Rooster fabrics…but they do sell some Red Rooster fabrics. This shop is in Dublin, Ohio and is one of my all time favorites!
Thanks! It looks like a fabulous shop!
Oooh, I love that fabric combination too! The scrap pack was just waiting for you to snatch it up..lucky you! I look forward to what you create with this combo. I know it will be gorgeous!
Yes, that scrap pack was meant to be! I hope Sandy like the final result!
Yes, I’ve got something up my sleeve, sewing as we speak!
