    I received these from Terri in Guam and they are Sooo beautiful. :) The package created quite a stir in the post office, had to open it and show all the ladies all the beautiful fabrics Terri sent me. :) There were lots of "Ooohs" and "Ahhhhs", even customers joined in.... lol

    Thank you Terri, they are so pretty I don't want to cut them.... but I will! :) I laid them all out in my sewing room and I'm letting them tell me what pattern to make. :)

    All the pretties from Terri :)

    Oh Shadow, that is sooo awesome!!! What a surprise, and the fabrics are gorgeous! Is that what you call it, letting the fabric talk to you? i like that! Yes, thats what i do do, just didnt know to cvall it that. Isnt fabric so much fun? And Terri is a sweetheart. I'm letting those surfer boys she sent me talk to me, thats kinda fun for sure lol lol I havent told hubby those surfer guys been talking to me lol lol Ok, this is my big question lol. Third photo down, bottom right hand corner, Terri sent me a gorgeous stack of fabric just like that one. Terri, i am sooo hoping you can tell me what you did with that fabric. When someone gives me fabric, i sooo like to know what they did with it too, cus it helps me to know how i can do the fabric justice, and ive really been wanting to know what you did with it Terri, becvause i have never sewn something with such a border on it before, and i think it looks stunning, and i wonder what you think too shadow. Ive never done a stack and whack, but i wonder if that can be done with that one?That is what im kinda thinking and wondering...hmmm :) :)

    Boy, I know what you mean about not wanting to cut stuff. I especially like the Eastery pastel fabs in there.

    I can't wait to see what you do with them. You make the best stuff.

    How sweet! I have some of the same Christmas fabric!! How funny! I am like you Shadow Dancer. I sometimes buy fabric for one project but then it sends me in a different direction. Congrats on all the fun fabric!

    WOOHOO!!! FINALLY!!!!
    Now, you need to make something pretty with them. I KNOW you will! It's the challenge I am giving to you! :)
    And what makes it even better, most of the quilts you make, you donate to good causes, so if that is what you do with these, I'm happy!!

    Now...GO MAKE SOMETHING!!! lol

    Oh, by the way.......I took the "made in the philippenes" sticker off the bottom of the Hawaiian bowl. lmao

    Terri:

    I sat there and laughed when you said you took the sticker of the bottom of the bowl that said "made in the PI" I thought that work looked familliar. I was stationed in the PI for 15 months. It was a fun place.
