I love to get things in the mail....

Today started out like my typical day. Get Don's breakfast and lunch made...get him off to work and then out in the garden by 7:30. This time of year I need to get everything done out there before the heat really kicks in so I go out as soon as he leaves for work. Today had a frustrating start though. The lawn mower wouldn't start and try as I may...I just couldn't get it going. So I scrapped that idea for a while and just decided to weed and trim. I was getting hot and tired, came in for a drink and knocked my new thrift store picture off the wall and the glass shattered every where! I was really mad by this time. Nothing seemed to go right today and I was just thinking about going back to bed and trying to start the day over....
when the doorbell rang...and it was my friendly UPS driver with a package for me...

I had ordered these fabrics at the end of last week and here they were already! Something to smile about:)!!



I must have been in an orange mood when I ordered all of this. Actually I love orange. It's so happy and so am I now that I have some new fabric! Don't you just love those huge polka dots! I've never seen any that big, but I know just what I'm going to do with all of this and you will see when I finish some of the other things that will come first....now if I can just get that pesky lawn mower started....

Nice fabric! I'm really into orange and green and blue right now. Love the blue with the squares up there! That's a great color! :0)

Oh my, Linda, I thought only I had days like that! LOL!!! That fabric is gorgeous. I didn't use to like orange, but find that the older I get, the more I really like it! Can't wait to see what you make!

XOXO,
