After several windy, cold days with gray skies, the sun finally decided to shine this Friday afternoon in central Minnesota. At nearly the same time, this little gem arrived on my doorstep! I kid you not folks, TWO day brighteners that occurred almost simultaneously. WOO HOO!
Yes, my first Sew Sampler Box from Fat Quarter Shop has arrived! This is a monthly subscription quilting box that automatically delivers surprise quilting goodies to my door every month. Each month the awesome people at Fat Quarter Shop will fill the box with treasures to surprise and inspire us!
It was a complete delight to open the box and examine the treasures! If you haven’t signed up for this monthly box, I hope you’ll consider it! Every item in the box is something I will enjoy and use. And bonus . . . I did not already own anything I received in the box! How cool is that? Here's what I unwrapped:
FABRIC! Naturally, I grabbed the fabric first ~ a "Grow!" charm pack by Me & My Sister Designs for Moda. Yeah! I finally have some of this cheerful fabric!
Then I found a small thread cutting scissors by Sew Mate. Well, I do own other small scissors, but none as light or as short as this one. This may just become my new go-to scissors! And the handles are so soft on my fingers which I really like!
Ooooh . . and a new ruler! I don't have one this size. I just know this FQS Creative Grids 2 1/2" x 6 1/2" ruler will be so handy when trimming small blocks!
And a pair of handy dandy, magnetic Screw B Do screw drivers that fit all brands of sewing machines! They have little soft gel handles and are just plain cute to look at! And I will admit, playing with the magnetic ends was a little fun too!
And finally, the darling "Strawberry Picking" pattern by "It's Sew Emma" as well as a recipe card for a quilt block AND the sweetest little magnet! I can't wait to collect all of the recipe cards!
Whew! I'm tired just being excited over all of this . . . but not too tired for a little sewing! Thanks so much for stopping by the blog and checking out the April Sew Sampler Box. Please visit Fat Quarter Shop for all the details on this super fun monthly subscription!
