Small completed projects!!

Some days all I want to sew are little things that I can finish in a few hours.
Today was one of those days.

I made a mug rug with selvages and scraps.
This was my first project today.
It was fun to make.

Then, I got a bunch of amazing mail.
The UPS man came first.
I hadn't bought a die in a while.
But I had all these points accumulated on the Accuquilt site.
So, I decided to order the GO! Heather Feather #2 die.
I don't usually buy applique dies.
But, I'm really glad I bought this one.

I worked on a few small projects using this die.

I finished one of them today.
This little art quilt was made using the leftover scraps from one of the fabric I cut with the die.

It's a little butterfly quilt.
Do you like it???
It's 8 X 10 inches.

I really love this die.
I will be showing more small projects with this die soon.

Then, the mail man came, and I received two packages.
These two packages are winnings from the Quilting Gallery's giveaway day.

The big package I received from Contemporary Cloth Fabric Shop.
Look at all my winnings.
It's like winning the lottery for a quilter to win so much fabric.
Thank you so much!!!!

Then, I won some beautiful dupioni silk from Cheryl Lynch Quilts.
She sent me 3 fat quarters and some interfacing to make a project.
Thank you so much Cheryl.
I can't wait to try using these silks.

So, I've had a pretty good day.

I hope you did too!

Wow congrats on the wins. I was at the store looking at a cutting die and wondering if they really work well. After looking at this I think I might buy and try one and see how it works out.
