Mail, etc.

I got a mystery package in the mail today from my aunt Lois.It ended up being a bag full of selvages collected from the women in her quilt guild and a very old box full of buttons that were my granny’s!(Camera phone @ nighttime = poor photos)
I have mourned the misplacement of my grandma’s jars of buttons while never thinking my other grandma might have had some. It is a neat old (shoe?) box that Lois thinks might have even been my great-grandmother’s. I’d like to figure out some way to display it. I will put those selvages to quick use as I plug away at my spiderwebs.The class schedule was released a couple days ago and I have registered for what I want to take at the Sewing Summit! If there’s room in all of them I’m going to take Documenting Your Creativity– Blogging and Social Media, Improv Piecing (by Jess of Urban Patchwork), Photographing Your Creations, Quilting at Home (with Allison of Cluck Cluck Sew), Creative Fabric Selection (taught by Jeni of In Color Order), and Marvelous Minis (taught by my idol, Amanda of MsMcPorckchop!). There is also a shop hop the day we get there; I can’t wait for October!I joined another challenge with my guild, this time based around Jay McCarroll’s Habitat line, a generous donation of fat eighths from FreeSpirit. (I had no idea until a couple weeks ago that he won the first season of Project Runway!) We will be picking up the fabric at our meeting in a couple weeks and it’ll be due in October (which I may or not make it to because of my trip to Utah). I have a possible idea for this and a possible recipient of it. I’m always up for a challenge! (Photo from Spool.)
