Happy mail, good choices and Fredericksburg has a MQG

I LOVE getting mail, I think everyone does. It seems to happen less frequently with computers and and other widgets.  I am like a KID when I see something in the box for me!!!  Jane  from Want it,Need It,Quilt! posted the MOST adorable VW bus fabric on Instagram and I was drooling all over my screen, which my in house engineer says is not really good for it, and she is such a DOLL...she SENT me some!!!


How CUTE!!!  THANK YOU SO MUCH JANE!!!!! BIG QUILTY LOVE YOUR WAY (and a few drinks in Houston...wink...wink)


Then Lindsay from Lindsay Sews was destashing and posted some vintage zippers in cool colors...YES PLEASE!!!!

and, sweetheart that she is...she added in some adorable fabric earrings!!!!! MUWAH!!!!!


The printer is back online so I can get back to making progress (if the kids ever go back to school) on some of my blocks. I was able to pick some fabric for the Jan Lucky Star block...WOOT WOOT!!!!


and Fredericksburg has had it's first Modern Quilting Guild meeting!!!!!  So excited to be part of this group and looking forward to the next meeting already!!!!

I was so happy to see a familiar face sitting in the room when I walked in! Becky from Sarcastic Quilter saved a seat for me right in the front row,LOL!

Great bunch of very talented and fun gals in the group. I asked permission to photograph and share photos and everyone said YES...YAAY!

Here are just a couple I took

Becky made this fantabulous one!!!! We all wanted to take it home :o)


This one was HAND STITCHED...FAINT!


I fell in love with this one...amazing!

Here is the group (minus a couple of ladies that had to leave and me since I am taking the photo)

So, if you happen to be in Fredericksburg  in Feb...come on over and join in on the fun!!!! The next meeting will be at Quilt and Sew
