Shoofly Block #4 - for Tracey

A few days ago I went to get the mail and saw that I had 4 packages waiting for me! Ok, actually 2, but one of them was from Deb who was sending for herself, Anissa, and me.  Mother load!  I also got a sweet bundle of fabrics from Tracey. Both of these packages came all the way from New Zealand! I never thought I'd be getting packages from that far away . . . it was quite a fun surprise. :)

Sorry for the less than stellar lighting of this photo.  I'm always getting itchy to post something and taking pictures after the sun's gone down.  ;)  I got a wide array of sweet scraps from Tracey and I tried to incorporate as many as I could while still maintaining the integrity of the block.  She really picked colors that coordinate well together and there was only one fabric I wasn't able to work in.  Hope she doesn't mind too terribly!

This block was a welcome break from the big cushion project of 2008.  I actually did finish all of the cushions last night . . . worked my little tail off into the wee hours of the morning.  Later on today I found out that my in-laws are actually NOT coming home on Wednesday, but actually sometime next week.

Oh well.  At least it's done and I can move onto some ever so much more, shall we say, creative endeavors.  :)

****This block was made as part of my first ever Quilting Bee. Want to see more blocks? Track my journey here: Vintage Sheet Freedom Bee.****

I can't believe we didn't get pictures of the finished cushions after all that leading us on...;-)

LOL, I will definitely post pics of the cushions when I get them on the couch. I haven't made it over to their house yet. Hold your horses. ;)
