Friendship Bag Swap and Other Thank yous too

My swap package arrived today. You've never seen a grown woman, like myself, pounce on a package that fast. I was on my way through the house...dropping my purse, kicking off my shoes, I had to run to the bathroom...when I saw the package. I grabbed it in pursuit of the bathroom, and multi-tasked ladies! Are any of you this bad when it comes to packages?

But, now you can see why....isn't it darling? I love the sky, grass, flowers motif...very clever. I never would have thought of anything so clever myself. She also sent me a cool book...which I forgot to snap! Looks like projects I would like! I'll keep you posted. Big thanks!!

My partner was Made By Haigh. She has a wonderful blog, with great projects posted but few comments. Stop on over there and say hi. I bet you'll find something to inspire you with.

Another big thanks to Corrie at Quilt Taffy for sending this great fat quarter pack prize my way. Isn't it fresh? If you haven't checked out Quilt Taffy yet, head over that way. Every Thursday they draw a giveaway winner. And every post offers some inspiration not to mention sometimes a chuckle or two!

-------- In other package pouncing action:
Another big thanks to Toni from The Red Boot Quilt Company for this adorable bear quilt pattern...one of her own designs! I was just thrilled to win.

I need to come over and rub your head right before I buy a lottery ticket! My goodness what wonderful packages. And yes, I've been known to multi-task with the mail in that room as well. Drives my kids nuts - they want to see what I'm opening, lol.

The bag is just adorable, you have been really lucky this week with lots of gorgeous things turning up in the mail! I bought that pattern from Toni, she designs such fun and beautiful quilts!

Usually when I get a package, I let it set for a little while and "savor" it, knowing that something great is inside and I don't want to rush the excitement. Am I silly? It works for me ;D
