Many Dresses for Bolivia and Giveaways

This week brought lovely packages in the mail!

 Thank you Kim & Janet......
 Kat & Friends.....................
 Carol from Idaho and Teresa................
 Cindy ..................
 and Kathi from CA. The abundance of little dresses is so sweet! I love how quilters step right up to help. Thank you all SO much!
And here are six I managed to make this weekend.

 I won a box of samples from Cyndi from Busy Thimble and they arrived too!
I was also the winner of this book of 70's quilt from Bill at WonkyWorld and it arrived as well. I am looking forward to seeing these up close and personal at the Benton County Historical Society in Philomath, Oregon. Go see them if you can and get more info HERE.


One more thing.... To give back a little, if you'd like these batiks, leave me a comment and I'll send them off to you this week. Check back on Wednesday.

Have a wonderful day!

  29. You have a lucky streak going. The fabric samples look to be a fun selection and the book interesting. I started quilting in late 70's

    Your offer for the batiks...well they are cheery and I think they might just like living in far north Wisconsin!

    Your dress drive is doing well. The recipients in Bolivia will be thrilled.
