The Busy Postman...

Time for me to mind my manners and thank some great people
for things that have arrived in the last 5 months...MAY already???...eeeek

This lovely pack came from Leona's first Mug Rug Adventure swap.
(Signups for the second one began on 1 May - here).

How about these?




No I didn't get 4 jelly rolls, I just had to try and show you the colours in the Swiss Chocolate range. This is from a giveaway at Amanda Murphy designs back in February.  I can't possibly make anything I just unroll and re-roll it to look at the colours. Never fear, it's not going to waste.
I just have to make up my mind...do I turn it into this scrumptious quilt?...
 
or maybe this one...

Then there is this roll of Oasis - it's just full of such pretty soft colours...

that came from the very talented Shruti of 13 Woodhouse Road (check out her Bella Solids giveaway - on all this month!).

Linda from Living the dream sent me these cute little gifts - a thimble and a magnet from her town in France.
 ...the lovely carved wood thimble has made itself right at home with my tiny...but expanding...collection of thimbles

I promised not to buy any more material until I'd made a dent in the existing stock...
...and the existing projects...
...umm...so we won't worry about that stash of material that arrived last week...
(there's a sneak peek of sewing machine fabric in one of the photos!)

thanks for taking a peek over the fence...
