3/4 Receipts, or what 33 lbs looks like

There were 3 packages today. I always open them in order of size - smallest to largest.

The first package was from Quilt Woman. Lovely patterns for bathroom ensembles - shower curtain, tissue box cover, towel hanger, towel borders and a waste basket cover. They are lovely!!

The second box was from Scholastic. They sent a large box full of kids books and magazines. Awesome! I'm sure that the moms and grandmas will be happy to see these!

The last box was positively bursting! One side of the box had split down the side! The box was from In the Beginning fabrics. See the weight there at the top of the label???

33 pounds! I opened the box and started flipping through ... it was all fabric!! Gorgeous prints! Some 30's, some retro, some stripes and florals! And the fabric just kept coming!

There was even a bolt or several with fabric still on them! Enough for backings!

And a lot of coordinating fabrics. This will make some great quilts!

I had to hurry up and put it away or else I would have spent way too much time looking through the entire box! Oh, April 24th - HURRY UP AND GET HERE!!! I have stuff to win in the raffle!! :-D

Oh, how glorious and how kind these companies and contributors are! I'm so excited to be a small part of this retreat for such a wonderful cause. Thank you, thank you, Jill and to all of those lovely donators! I'm going to have to pretend that I'm going to Vegas and stuff my wallet with singles for all the raffle tickets. (giggle)

Lovely things! I went to the Quilt woman site and can't find that pattern. Does she sell them do you know?
