Great mail day!

Sometimes I really like my mailman!  He brought me something I won in the 'countdown to retirement' draw that Vicki (of Field Trips in Fiber)  had on her blog a couple of weeks ago.  Vicki is multi-talented and does lots of wonderful art. 

I was lucky enough to win one of her tie-dyed t-shirts.....

AND - I also won two pieces of her hand dyed fabrics!!!!

Aren't they beautiful?  I'm not sure what I'll be making to use the fabrics - there's enough there for several projects.  I will choose something special because those hand dyes need to be shown off.  As for the t-shirt - I'm wearing it tomorrow!!!

Thank you Vicki!!


  1. WhooHoo, you made out girl! I am waiting for my camera to charge so I can download pics of what I won from your blog giveaway. I am loving what I won. The more I look at the buttons/pendants, the more I want to make jewlery out of them. They are the bone beads from . Check out their website sometime.

  2. How wonderful to get some great stuff from the mailman! Congratulations on winning such awesome fabric and the t-shirt! Thank you for stopping by my blog and viewing my studio. It has been a fun party! Have an awesome day!

    Live Creatively! Patti

  3. I love the colors in the shirt and the fabrics are just a great plus. The top blue/purple one is my favorite.

    have fun wearing your shirt.



  4. Hey Fellow Magpie,
    Thanks for visiting and your nice comments. Yes winning is great! It is nice to see the maillady with something other that junk mail and bills. The tie-dyed fabric looks really fun, I can't wait to see what you make with it.

  5. WOW, they all look great--and you will look great in that t!

    Received the lent stamp yesterday and thank you for the flosses and especially the stick on thimbles: my right ring needle finger embraces you:)

  6. I'm so glad you like everything! Thanks for playing along with me.


Thank you so much for leaving comments! I appreciate you taking the time out of your busy life to talk to me. It's wonderful to know that someone is actually reading my mumblings and even more fun if I can connect with you and visit your blog.
