Shopping, Scraps, Surprise

Sunday was a very pleasant day for a short drive to Quilters Bazaar, as they were celebrating with a sale I just had to buy me some presents. I took home these pieces of fabric just because they were there and I really liked them - no particular purpose in mind, though one of them could make an appearance in a project real soon? I am still cutting and sewing scraps - lots of these two inch squares will become part of something real soon. I have sewn some of them together today, so not long now.
Ooh.... Who doesn't like a Surprise - a lovely package full of yummy's was waiting for me at the Post Office - Yippee.
Yes, there are two boxes of Graham crackers and two bags of tootsie pops and four boxes of my favourite Stash Tea but I have to share with Jindi's mum. All of these goodies came from the lovely AuntPittyPat, it truly was a surprise (she did not even hint that she had sent anything when we were chatting on the weekend) and Very much appreciated.
Thanks for all the suggestions regarding borders on my last post, I have been having fun playing with borders for the Happy Houses and may even have a quilt top done soon. I did have an emailed comment that referred to them as Crazy Houses, I found that very apt as choosing a final border was driving me a bit crazy at the time.
May you also enjoy a surprise this week.
Happy Crafting
