Mystery package and a big mess!

Free In Saturday's mail I received a package from Z&S Fabrics.  I had recently placed an order for some Moda Spencer Museum prints, but my order was sent complete, so I was quite curious what this package contained.  Imagine my surprise when I opened it to find this package of 10 Michael Miller fat quarters, plus a $25 gift certificate!

I spent a couple of hours trying to ponder who might have sent me this lovely gift, or wondering if it was just a mistake and they had mailed me someone else's order... well, the fat quarters, maybe, but not a gift certificate with MY NAME on it!

When my husband finally got off the computer, I went to their website and discovered that they were sending this lovely prize to one customer every week in September just for placing an order.  So I guess I won!  Lucky, lucky me!

Mess As for the big mess - my creativity and quilt progress has been stymied by this huge mess in my sewing room.  I'm trying to get stuff ready to take to my retreat in November (there is a sewing room sales area where you can 'recycle' stuff you no longer want).  So I've pulled fabrics and need to sort and measure.  Yes, this is only PART of what I will be taking.  Shameful, I know, but my tastes change or it's something I ordered off the Internet that did not meet my expectations in person.  One gal's trash is another's treasure, after all!  There certainly is a lot of treasure here!


  1. A surprise package with goodies. WooHoo - always a good thing. :-)
    The sorting and sifting continues - Whew!

  2. Great that you won the prize!! I love how they tie up our orders with cool fabrics! I use them again for scraps!
