My package came YAY!!

Well OK one of the three I was waiting for! I think I said I am doing two swaps. One of them our fabrics had to be in Oct15th, but she had a heck of a time getting everyones stuff there and black listed one person and well I have not yet gotten my fall colour exchange blocks... The other had to be in by Nov 1st (mine got there a day late darn me!!) That one was Christmas material. I am very patiently awaiting these two packages! I do so LOVE to do swaps!
OK But here is my THRIIIILLLL!!! I ordered material from Connecting Threads on the 8th. It arrived yesterday!! That is some great turn around!! OK they had some clearance that was can you guess oh yes 30's stuff!! And if you order $50 or more the shipping is free! Well ummm yes I will order enough so I get free shipping. I ordered 1/4 yard of all but one of the materials (that last one I ordered 1/2 yard). I ended up getting 32 materials for just a little over $50!! That was a LOT of fabric for the price! And it is BEAUTIFUL!!!
OK Let me start by saying so sorry about the lovely quality of the pics, my camera and the light (or lack there of) were really not cooperating with me this morning! So LOOK at that  HUGE BOX! I have never ordered material from the internet before. First of all you never quite know what you are getting if you cannot feel it and see it in person! But I have to say these are very nice materials! 

 Now most of what I got was 30's stuff, bit I will start with the few that are not (as that is how they happened to load up on this contraption and I have the hardest time moving the pics around on this blogger) I digress... I got two christmas loved the little trees... and the other four here are a woodland creature thing with a flowery material to coordinate! Not sure what I am going to use them for, but the little mushrooms and racoons were just to cute to pass up!!

When I do find a material I like, especially if it is such a great deal I can't pass it up... Yes I am that gal who gets it in evey colour!! LOL it is just like if you find a great fitting pair of jeans or shirt right!! Four of the little flowers, three of the 'lifesavers', I do think I already have this one in red from my trip to Door County, just checked and YUP, so yay another coordinating, and you can NEVER pass up a good solid right! The solids are the coordinating for a collection called 'Canning Day' and oh yes, if they had it I bought it!!

 Really bad picture alert... Well there are two of the tiny polkadot, not so sure if they are really my favorite, but I know they will coordinate well and make a great addition to any of these fabrics!  I do so wish I would have been able to find a few more purples! I will have to keep looking! The reds ALWAYS speak to me and there is a whole lot of flowers going on here!! I was just talking to someone the other day and said I find it crazy that I am so drawn to the 30's stuff when I am 1. not a pastel gal and 2. really not a flowery gal!! Go figure right!! But when you love something...

Loved the cherries and apples! The apricot coloured cherries material is the one I got half a yard of. I think the crazy teal apples just jump off of the material!! and there are the cute little leaves! I have a few ideas what I am going to use this for!!
Sad Christmas is coming, no more material till the new year! I have to start shopping for my kids!! I get kind of grumbly with christmas shopping, but I guess that is for another post! LOL

Hope you have found as great of a deal as I have on something that you LOVE!!
