Arrival from Chicago!





As promised in the previous post, I show you my last fabric order from USA.
My eldest son who lives in Chicago was so kind to fill half of his suitcase with fabrics for his mother!
Thank you so much Bob!!
I have here fabrics enough for two queen size quilts and about three or four baby quilts.
I am eager to start my new project with the blue hues : a quilt for the 60th birthday of my sister.
Those blue fabrics will complete the shot cottons of a previous order. 

A beautiful Sunday to everyone!
Christine

  5. I totally understand your excitement. I live in Poland and after we get back from a trip, after the initial relief that the trip is over, I get to enjoy the fabric I've brought back. It is like Christmas once again!

  8. So happy for you! Great to have family or friends abroad who can bring you fabrics. If I know someone from abroad is coming I order on-line, pay for it and have it sent to their address. They take the fabrics with them when they come, and I avoid taxes this way!
