Return of the Mailman

With no mail on Saturday (in observance of Veteran's Day), my mailbox tonight was packed with unexpected goodies. I really am out of the loop, as I had no idea Blackbird Designs had released a new Loose Feathers chart. It is a cute one, and I love the autumnal colors in it. I also received my Silkweaver Fabrics of the Month. This month's are Summer Sunset (left) and Intrigue (right). This picture does not do either of these justice. And speaking of mail, Angi's RR went in the mail to Michelle today, so I will breathe a sigh of relief when she receives it. Along with Eric's stocking, I have also been working on our Christmas ornament for our first married Christmas together. Here is my progress on my partridge. It is coming along for the very limited time I have to work on it. This is over one on 28 ct., and typically Teresa Wentzler with a lot of confetti stitching and a little bit of blended threads.
I am still soooooo behind on blog reading and I do apologize to everyone. I will try to get caught up soon.

I am grateful for Craftborg - love those podcasts!

I just saw the new Loose Feathers last night and definitely plan to order that one! I got Intrigue belfast from Silkweaver this month too - thrilled with it! (my option is one fat quarter of Expressions belfast, what is your option?)

Lovely stash! We don't have mail deliveries on Saturdays any time. Your ornie looks great so far.

Your fabrics of the month are so pretty. I like the pattern you got too. Looks like you had a really good mail day.

I love your stash haul, Michelle. I got a lot of mail yesterday but most of it was bills. LOL

Your ornament is going to be beautiful. I love TW stuff and it will surely be an heirloom.

Beautiful fabbies you got! :) I love your partridge, too. It's looking really wonderful.
