How much fun is getting fabric in the mail! I am participating in the Snowball Quilt challenge hosted by Allyson and Nicole and part of the fun is exchanging light fabric with the people you've been matched up with as swap partners. Some of my fabric packages have arrived and what fun it is to open them although one of my swappers, Debra, is saving all the packages and waiting until they all arrive and then opening them! What stamina! I could not wait so I opened them as they arrived. The above picture shows what has arrived and above them is the three fabrics I sent out. What a wonderful combination and no duplicates.
On a side note, I stopped at my LQS yesterday to get the Easy Angle ruler that I have been wanting ever since Nicole showed how she is using it on this challenge. When I went in, the place was in a jumble with fabric everywhere, her long arm taken apart and all the displays down. She is closing! She decided late last week to close-no explanation although I think the shop was a victim of the economy. I have been getting all my quilts quilted there so I need to find a new quilter. Help! There have been a number of shops that have closed around here in the past couple of years. I sure hope it stops.
