Scrappy Saturday

I received a surprise package in the mail this week from Kristin who blogs over at GumdropsLook what was inside... a rainbow scrap challenge pouch with an orange zip!
There are few things more fun than getting something in the mailbox that is unexpected, and not a bill or a jury summons!  And this package travelled over 9 hours crossing the US-Canada border, coming all the way to me from Wisconsin! 

So fun!
And guess what was tucked inside?
These little squares are already cut and ready to sew into a project.



But that's not all...
More scraps were in the package. 
Just look at these!
Thanks so much Kristin for this fun gift!
I set right to sorting and cutting these treasures to sew into my various RSC projects.

First up was some scrappy sprout blocks. I made an orange sprout which was last month's colour, and an aqua block for this month.
This is a free pattern from Tracey and can be found here.




My fabric garden is growing well and I have 10 sprouts now. They look healthier than anything in my real garden this year!



To see more rainbow scrap projects, hop over to the RSC link up.

What a fun surprise! It isn't every day that a rainbow shows up in the mail. Your sprouts are growing nicely. Hopefully your real garden isn't far behind.

These sprouts have been on my wish list since I first saw them m. I just need to finish one of the dozen other projects first.

What a nice surprise! Your sprout blocks are growing.

Such a lovely surprise package. You are so right about the bills etc. in the post. No one writes letters any more, and very few people send cards, let alone packages.

I wish my real garden looked as wonderful as your fabric one!

Very fun surprise. Your sprouts look very lush, beautiful colors.

Kristin said...

Hooray!!!! I'm glad you like your treat! I had fun tracking the package and seeing it take it's time through customs. Your blog is so fun to read and you are such a dedicated sewer, making a rainbow zippy pouch was the least I could do for you! =)

You are so fortunate to have such a thoughtful friend. The sprouts look like they will be Jack and the bean stalks before the end of the summer. Guess you will have to find another name than sprouts.
