I had two great fabric parcels yesterday, the best thing to get in the post and both form overseas. Firstly a parcel from Ayumi containing packets of goodness from Japan! She put together a little parcel for each coaster make from Suzuko Koseki's gifts at the Tokyo Quilt Festival/
Ayumi also sent me the cutest stickers and postcard, I could seriously lose myself in a shop selling stuff like this. Ayumi, you choose the best things! The little jar of peanut butter jumped out at me straightaway, and the box of biscuits with the Bonne Maman style gingham box. She has a great blog entry with some amazing pics of Zakka gifts and goodies here.
And this beautiful silky, shimmery pile is the Block party Prize for my spools block generously provided by Kim at Poppy Seed Fabrics. She has a wonderful range of fabric but it was these Anna Maria Horner Little Folks Voiles that really stood out. Kim has such a good selection and some lovely rainbow Little Folks bundles including the new pastry line with the scalloped stripe. I got a big length of pastry voile in 'water' (the blue) to make a Pochee tunic and the other FQs are to make a silky blanket/quilt of dresdens.
A big thank you to Kim, Heather and Megan at Quiltstory and everyone who commented on my little block x
Remember to visit here tomorrow- a fabric giveaway is sitting ready for someone to win!
