The Mailman's been good to me!

PSSST!! Check out the Butterscotch and Rose giveaway over at our sponsor, Fat Quarter Shop!! Click here! Some of you were crazy about the bundle that I won....here's your chance to get your mits on some for yourself! LOL


On your list of I-have-to-do-this-daily things, is checking the mail one of your favs?



Or do you find yourself wishing there were fewer of these


And more of these?



Me too.

But this week the mailman was good to me!! Look what came to me from Barbara at Bejeweled Quilts by Barb! These adorable little buttons!


I can't wait to incorporate them into something fun! They are made by women in Africa; you can check out what they do at this site: Button Mad. They have an incredible variety of buttons available, and you really should take a look around at what they have to offer --- you might find the perfect button for that project you are planning!
They are hand made, and hand painted --- but get this: they are washable!! From bears to hearts to hammers and snowmen . . . it is just amazing!

The other package that came was from the Ghastlie Blog Hop, from Carrie at Canary Quilts. I won a mugrug extraordinaire! Just look at this . . . I hope my camera skills can capture her workmanship!


(Sorry, it is not wonky shaped like that....)
There's even a little charm attached as a picture on the wall!  


I am amazed at how skillfully she quilted this, with a neat thread that has a little sparkle to it! Thanks, Carrie!

Sure hope your week is a good one! We have a giveaway coming soon, so be sure to check back with us here at the Lilypad!!

Love,
