Getting stuff in the mail is pretty exciting. (I guess I live a very boring life. I confess.) I received the batiks I ordered. Look at all the gorgeous colors.

I had ordered fat-quarter packs of batiks from Connecting Threads, and they arrived today. For some reason, I'm guessing price, CT sent them by UPS to US mail to our house. Lots of other companies send just by UPS, or just USPS. It took 8-9 calendar days from order to delivery. Seems long when Canton Village got things to me in 2 days. Well, I'm thrilled with the selection and anxious to see how they'll play with Desert Sky. Here is what I have of Desert Sky so far:

This will be the stunningest quilt I've ever made! (What? You don't think that's a word? Huh.)

I have found packages take longer from Connecting Threads, some companies send them priority and others select a method that is cheaper I think. I to get some packages that I thought were coming UPS to come from the post office - lovely batiks.

Getting fabric in the mail is super exciting! Especially beautiful batiks like you ordered. I find that sometimes things come fast and sometimes I wait weeks - from the same company with the same shipper. Oh well. This will definitely be a stunning quilt!! :)

Your batiks are beautiful, and they certainly look like they'll play nicely with the colors you've already used in Desert Sky. Perfect!

I love getting fabric in the mail! I think that I sometimes shop online just to increase the anticipation of receiving beautiful prints!
