Z is for ZOOM

Today I received AWESOME mail! Quilty mail in fact, which is the best mail of all! On Thursday I heard about an amazing quilt fabric sale at - 60% off end of bolts, and only $2.99 flat rate shipping! I picked up a bunch of Anna Maria Horner fabrics, along with some Amy Butler, and Joel Dewberry among others.

Today, Saturday it arrived. ZOOM! That's just two days, from the moment they received my order, cut the fabrics, packaged it up, sent it, not to mention having to travel from Texas to New Hampshire. I am mightily impressed!

Plus, when I opened it up, it was wrapped up so prettily, which always makes my heart happy...

 Since I have a nice little collection of Anna Maria fabrics, I thought it was time they had their own place to live instead of in with all the rest. I happened to go to a huge yard sale today benefiting the Humane Society - 14,000 sq feet of second hand goodness! I picked up a beautiful blue glass bowl, which is happy having some pretty fabric sitting in it!

At the sale I also picked up this gorgeous little tin...

It reminds me of my mother and grandmother and makes me happy to look at it. I think I'll keep some sewing notions inside.

Also I bought a bread knife with a pretty handle, a large old wooden spool, and some jewelry.  It was a great day!

And with that, the A-Z challenge is complete! Back to my regularly scheduled blogging...which I was putting off because I felt guilty about not finishing the A-Z challenge. Ah yes good ol' guilt. Gets me every time!
