Packages, Who Doesn’t Love Getting Mail?

As I mentioned in my last post, there was another delivery that I received the week our youngest was born. That sounds kind of funny, like it was forever ago when in reality it was only a week and a half ago. Oh he’s so cute, more pictures soon of him.

This was what I found in my mailbox on the 22nd:

Well, it was actually in an envelope, but I’m sure you assumed that. It’s my loot from the Rainbow Swap I did. I was sooo excited to get it! And, I will definitely be doing this one again next spring.

There are tons of ideas flowing about what to use it for. Here’s a little collage of what I’ve been goggly-eyed over:

I know that most of these projects aren’t really do-able with 4 1/2 inch squares, but they’re so pretty.

I’m really leaning towards doing a sampler and using most of these to get inspiration for my blocks. Clearly I’m not fully committed yet, but thankfully I’m not planning on making this for a gift – it will be all for me! Ok, maybe I’ll share with the kids… if I have to.
