Made with Moxie: My postal worker hates me

June 7, 2012

My postal worker hates me

She's a lazy woman and doesn't like to get out of her mail truck which is what she has to do when I get large or more packages than she can jam into our mailbox. For someone who gets to wear jeans to work and sits on her tush all day she complains a lot. I want to tell her that the UPS and FedEx men never whine about the number of packages I get. And, quiet frankly, are much more attractive.

I won Fern's Frocks first SMS giveaway which was a set of 4 coasters made from this awesome owl fabric. When they arrived this week my daughter confiscated them along with a cute Hello Kitty ring. She loves it and wears it day and night on her index finger, like a mob boss.

To a two year old and an infant, coasters are great toys, so I decided to tear open a teeny hole in the seam of each and filled them with rice. Now they have a sweet set of owl bags to toss around. I also plan to microwave them so my husband can give me a faux hot rock massage. He thinks I'm kidding. I think I may need to make more.

Packages for the DS Charm Swap have been arriving everyday (much to postal worker's chagrin.) There are piles and piles of lovely Denyse Schmidt charm squares all over my cutting table. It's a shame I have to send the all back. I am fighting the urge to just run to the Mexican boarder with my sewing machine and live out the rest of my days in hiding, but with an impressive sized DS quilt.

I was checking off packages from my charm swap participant list and had one I couldn't find on my list. I was worried someone sent me fabric and had not signed up for an official spot. Or that I had royally screwed something up. Turns out it was the fabric I won on ImagineGnats' SMS giveaway from Contemporary Cloth Store!

It was a seriously generous offering of a half yard of each print. Thank you! I can't tell you how much I love the colors in the Stockholm line by Kaufman and the hand is amazing. I'm browsing for a fun quilt pattern for them right now. I need to make a new quilt so I can photograph it wrapped around my husband, shirtless, eating a spicy burrito.

You think I'm kidding, but I intend to have him be Mr. March in the 2013 Q.S.M.A.S.B.C. by the Bitchy Stitcher.

I wonder, do you think these colors compliment a naked man eating a burrito? :D
