Thank you postman (32)

I was really excited to get not one but two packages in the post yesterday. AND NO BILLS!!!! The Jelly Roll Quilts book is newly published by my LQS in Dorking,  The Quilt Room. The quilt I made for my husband's birthday was made from jelly rolls, and I'd really like to make another, so I foresee some happy hours reading and planning.

The next package was Popular Patchwork magazine which I have just started subscribing to. It has a good website too. I like this magazine because it's aimed at regular, everyday quilters rather than professional, clever quilters! Unfortunately it's already cost me money, because I found a website for a UK online store with a sale and inevitably spent more than I should. So perhaps the jelly roll with have to wait for a while.
Don't you love the little sewing organiser on the front cover? I think that will have to be my first project.

The weather here in the UK continues to be glorious and we should be off to Brighton today - hooray, just the day for going to the seaside.

If you ever do the jelly roll quilt, I hope you'll take a photo and post it. I have no idea what it looks like.

I hope you enjoy the beautiful day, the sea, your son, and your new goodies, not necessarily in that order.

Hope you enjoy your day at the seaside. Today I'm moaning about the heat ... can't please the Brits can you!!!!

I too love when the postman brings me goodies. I've been busy sewing and Bonnie's clue came out today. And a clue for my Quilt of Valor mystery quilt. I've also just completed 12 filler blocks for a quilt along that I'm doing. Busy, busy. And yes, we have Father's Day also. That comes on the second Sunday in June. And the Hallmark Card Company created Grandparents Day in September. Since I'm not a grandma yet, I won't be getting a card for that one, lol. I hope you have wonderful weather for your sojourn to Brighton, enjoy the day.

I love mail days with goodies and no bills! I am going to check out the second magazine's website.
