A New Adventure ...

Can you guess why this box full of fiber goodness arrived at Sophie Junction today?


My New Adventure


I will share more when I can take (better) photos in natural light. In the meantime, I confess that coming home after a hard day at work to a beautiful box-full of Aurifil and Superior Threads and some amazing batik fabrics is just the fiber therapy that I needed.

So glad to have found you through the Island Batik hop. I just read back through the last year of your posts and I can see I should have been following you sooner--I would likely have been inspired to make some progress on some lingering projects if I had. You have a new follower. Happy to meet you! Greetings from very rural Oregon, where the cats and dogs are all asleep, or they would say hey to Miss Grace.

Tu-Na Quilts said...

I would love a box of these in the mail and thought about applying for the 2018 Ambassador program. But due to my overwhelming UFO list and some health issues, I decided to wait a year or two. I hope you are ok since you haven't shown any of your creations since receiving this box.
