Well-- I have left you all waiting long enough to see what has been in all my "other" packages that have come in this week--
Today's box was an order from JoAnn's--4 packages of cotton batting, a herta marker, and two storage boxes--all on sale--I was hoping the storage boxes would be alittle smaller--at least  the individual sections inside--as these I have planned to store the new threads that are coming in on spools in--so we will have to see???/
This is from equilter--they have the larger spools of Mettler sewing machine thread--and I can not just order thread--heaven forbid--so here are 3 one yard cuts of some interesting sale fabrics---
This came a couple days ago--
and is some of the new Valandi threads from the Raspberry Rabbit---yummy--can't wait til next month to order more!!!
See--great colors---
Suzanne's Quilt shop in GA was having a 20% off sale on Batik's and for some reason--that 'Di' is on a batik kick--so ---
all yummy colors--
Plus two others--the cute ducky fabric is for my friend Anne and her baby blankets--the wood looking one was to be for a 'barn" bom that I have been collecting the patterns for--but I think it may be too big of a design and it is not red enough for me!!!
And another B-day gift came in the mail--this is from a pen pal named Cindy whom I have written back and forth with for over 10 years now--
Thank you Cindy--( she is not a blogger or reader--so we still write!!!)

I still have two more different kinds of thread orders coming in the mail--can't wait!!!

Now--what kind of day did "Di" have today--that's the big question of the hour???
Finally a normal day--and boy was I ready for it!!!

And yes-- I did get lots of sewing done today--but guess what---you gotta wait until tomorrow's post to see them!!!!! so you all come back now!!
