Well . . . This will be fun!

My box arrived from Quilt Market ! YAY !

I shipped home my purchases as well as those heavy catalogs, much better than lugging them on the plane . . . but it was a test for my patience knowing what treasures I'd bought only to wait for their arrival!
Much of Quilt Market is not geared towards my business...BUT...much of it does fit!
Just look at these colors . . . . amazing threads fromValdani & Weeks Dye Works. Luscious wools from,Primitive Gatherings, Hooked On Rugs & The Wool Den. I even found a few lovely pieces of early "turkey red" and "indygo blue" fabrics and some amazing silk covered French buttons!

Looks like I'm gearing up for Patriotic and Halloween pieces and I can't wait!!

Oh, it's all lovely! You must be tickled pink that it arrived--Christmas all over. :-) Thank you for telling where some of the beautiful things are from; I'm on the lookout for high-quality fabrics and notions, especially since I've been inspired in a few new directions of late and have no clue where to look!
