A Surprise Package

There is a very sweet and thoughtful gal in California who sent me a surprise package in the mail recently.  (Wanna guess who?  I'll give you a hint:  She writes a blog called Tombstone Livestock.)


Along with a nice note and some beautiful stamps, and some seeds for Knobby Green Pumpkins (don't they sound interesting!), she sent this fabric.  The strip fabric is old time feed sack replicas.


And this border?  "Hog wash!"  Love it.

So what will I do with this fabric?  (Gosh, I dunno.  How 'bout some . . . (wait for it) . . . potholders!)  Those feed sack reprints could hardly be more fitting for potholders.  I promise to take pictures when they're done.  (There may be a give-a-way involved!)

Thanks again for my surprise package, Sweet Lady Raiser of Sheep and Goats!

    1. Kelly - If you find something like that, grab it 'cause they tend to make ones like that only once . . . and then they're gone.

    1. Susan - Do you know how much I want to drop everything I have to do today and go work on those potholders? Can't. Sigh.

  4. I know they will be potholders much faster at your house than mine. Have fun.

    1. Sparkless - Good idea! Unfortunately, by the time I saw your comment I was well into the potholders making. Wish I had more of the fabric 'cause it really would make cute aprons.

  7. I have this fabric. Didn't know what to make. Pot holders are a great idea. What a great surprise package.

    1. Lisa - I have the potholders almost done. But a busy, busy week shaping up here so I'll have to plan my time well to get them finished. (I just don't know why I can't play in my quilt room all day, every day!)
