Fiber Therapy

There’s been precious little fabric coming through my door of late. In fact, I can’t remember the last purchase I made. It was probably a cute little charm pack, intended to boost my spirits during a particularly “trying time.“ By that reasoning, I should be smothered with fabric. Times have been very trying lately. But that is the subject for another post… maybe.

Generally, I don’t submit my name for giveaways involving fabric. I’ve got more than I will ever use, and should probably consider giving away portions of my own stash. What made me linger over this post long enough to enter was the enticement of five fat quarters and fifty 3" squares of lovely reproduction fabrics. Wow, no cutting required, just the instant gratification of stroking and sorting, mixing and matching beautiful bits of cloth!

Before I knew it, I had entered the drawing. My comment was completely impulsive and when Vicki from "What a Load of Scrap" (best blog name ever, by the way) announced me as a winner, I felt a bit guilty about my good fortune.

You see, I know several of the other entrants and felt like I’d ripped this fabric right out of their far more capable and deserving hands.

Forgive me friends. I’m in desperate need of a pick-me-up and the pleasure of opening a squishy package filled with patchwork possibilities is just the best feeling around.

Thank you, Vicki, for the fiber therapy!
