I think I mentioned some special deliveries that were coming my way over the summer? Mom, Dad, and Bro came over for a fabulous visit in July, bringing along with them quite a lot of scrummy fabric for me, amongst other goodies. There was so much fabric, in fact, that Dad - the fabric mule - returned home with a nearly empty suitcase! My fabric haul included two gorgeous jelly rolls...

... a great fat quarter bundle...

... and three of these cool kits, each of which includes pattern and fabric for four 15 in blocks.

All of the fabrics seem to go really well together, and the fat quarter bundle seems made for blending, so I've got the materials here for a few really lovely quilts! I'm not quite sure where I'll start, but I'm enjoying just admiring these fabrics and dreaming about all the possibilities. Thanks, Mom and Dad!

A couple of other great fabric acquisitions recently: this gorgeous mini jelly roll. 

It's 'Little Red Riding Hood' by Riley Blake. *Swoon* I just couldn't resist those little mushrooms!

And, last but certainly not least, this little package of goodies arrived for me in the post today.

This was a totally unnecessary but certainly much appreciated thank you gift from a friend who took some unwanted clothes off my hands after a draconian closet clearing I undertook a couple of weeks ago. She was happy not to have to go shopping, and I was happy to pass the clothes on to someone who might get some use out of them. Win, win! Aren't they fab? Thanks, Judith!

Meanwhile, progress is being made on my scrappy patchwork baby quilt. Just the quilting and the binding left to do. Hoorah! I'm so delighted with the way this is coming out. Honestly, I could squeal with delight!

Apologies for the poor picture quality...
