Ephemera and Fabric Scraps--Things That Make Me Happy!!

Yesterday, I received a delightful piece of mail from was her July Giveaway package that I was so lucky to win!

Vintage book pages and postcards, a variety of game cards--including Logomachy, vintage calling cards and other bits that are perfect for ATC's and tags, etc.

I was surprised to see that Mary also included a packet of charms--so pretty and unique! These will be great for paper projects too...and/or fabric projects.

As you can probably imagine, lingering over this package of goodies has been muchos fun! Thank you, Mary!!


Today, I was back in front of the sewing machine and it felt goood!!! I made blocks for Rachel in my Stash Busting Bee International group.

She wanted Wonky Stars, either 12.5" or 6.5". I made five 6.5" blocks...

The centers are fabric

Rachel sent from her stash.

The points are from my stash.

Except for this last one, which is made with scraps from her fabrics.

I'd forgotten how fun it is to make these stars--just about anything goes!

Hope you're having a good weekend:)
