Came in the Mail Yesterday

I do quite a bit of ordering from the internet. For quite a few years now, I have ordered from Connecting Threads.com. There is always a good discount on books and they carry quite a few. Also, you can look at quite a few pages on the inside of each book and that really can make you want it or decide it's not what you think it is. I ordered these two - the first is kind of cute and the other one deals with working on the computer with pictures which I really love to do. Haven't had a chance to really read it yet but the review they gave it was good.
They are now selling their own fabric for $5.90 something a yard and I have been going to try it. There was a new, bright collection this time so I sent for fat eighths - all 20 in the collection for about $15.00. Well, it's really nice - bright and silky.
You can get an idea from the pictures. Lots of their collections are more like thimbleberries or civil war - anyway, go take a peek at their website if you are interested. connectingthreads.com


Then the other package was the new light for my sewing machine - look at it shine!!! Wow, you can really see what is under the presser foot. Clothilde sent a catalog earlier and the $50 light was on sale for $39.95 - with free shipping. This is going to be one of my favorite things! Still waiting on one more package - I ordered a bunch of 1/2 yard pieces of batiks on sale from Hancock's of Paducah. Look forward to their arrival! Like, really, I need more fabric!!!!!!!
