Mail Call Monday - A Present and a Preeti Treat-y

Welcome to another edition of Mail Call Monday!!  This series of posts shares many items received in my mail box, as well as the special deliveries that arrive in person.

Like this one, which was delivered while I was on retreat last week...

Imagine my surprise when I found that Tiffany's Ice Cream Sundae Clip/Pin Cushion had been made for me:

Thanks, Tif!  It's SEW sweet!!

When I returned home...

After months of blooming, I was surprised to find that the bud on my rose bush when I left had opened AND survived my week away.  This lovely flower was awaiting my arrival:

I know that it didn't come in the mail, but it felt like a special delivery since November begins tomorrow!

Once inside...

I found this package on the counter waiting for me:

The contents was a copy of the holiday edition of Quilter's World Magazine...

My name was drawn in a giveaway for this issue...

This is my favorite project in the publication, Stars & Swirls, designed by Preeti:

Special thanks to Preeti @ Sew Preeti Quilts for drawing my name from the numerous entries on her blog!  That was such a lovely surprise.

Better still...

I've got a stack of fabric just waiting to be transformed by this playful design.  :o))

Until next time...
Feeling SEW lucky!!!
