A Package in the Mail

Back in December, I signed up for Craft It Forward at Jane's Sew Create It blog.  I received an email from Jane (in England!) on Tuesday saying that she had put my package in the mail. It arrived (in Canada!) on Thursday!  No complaints about the mail service here! Jane made me a lovely zippered pouch with a clear front for my sewing supplies and some chocolate.  Thanks, Jane!  Did you know that Jane is originally from Montreal, Canada?

I love her labels...(Maybe I need to get some of these made for me to use on my projects!)

Now that I have received my parcel, it is time for me to Craft it Forward.  Here are the rules:

Here are the rules:

I will make a crafty gift for the first five people to comment on this post and say that they would like to be a part of Craft it Forward! This little gift is a surprise, and will arrive to you anytime within the next 9 months.

2. To sign up to Craft it Forward, you need to commit to the project yourself. Once you receive the item from me, just post this (or something similar) on your blog so others can get involved. You then make them something and Craft it Forward continues on and on!

Leave a comment on this post telling me your favourite colour and that you want to participate in Craft it Forward. Also, please be sure that I have a way to contact you so I can get your snail mail address (do not leave your postal address in the comment!) so I can get your crafty gift in the mail.

It is another snowy/rainy day here so I have been inside hand stitching the binding on my stacks quilt. You can see that I am down to a much smaller bandage on my injured finger now. The stitches come out on Tuesday.

Here is my stash report.

Fabric used since my last stash report:  .7 yards
Total fabric used this year: 7.15 yards
Fabric added to the stash since my last report: None
Total fabric added this year:  .75 yards
Net fabric used this year: 6.4 yards

I will show more pictures of the completed Stacks quilt later this week.


  1. The first 5...I'm one. I'd love to craft it forward. Count me in.

  2. oops, my favorite color? That is really hard ..but I love red. -Laurie

  3. I would love to take part, I am happy to post any where. My favourite colour, right now it has to be yellow we need a splash of sunshine at this grey time of the year.

  4. Good you hear you are healing well. At least you are still able to do some binding. It would be awful if you weren't able to do anything!

  5. WOW - that did arrive quick! The British and Canadian posties have certainly been eating their wheaties!! LOL

  6. Hope you enjoyed your slow stitching, although I can't imagine how you can stitch with stitches!!...thanks for linking up!
