Fat Quarter Swap - What I Received

Hello all! Last month I participated in a fat quarter swap held by Lisa of Sweet Little Pretties. The theme was spots and stripes and we were to send our partner two fat quarters. I  forgot to take pictures of the fat quarters I found for my partner, but they went to Australia. I never heard from her, so I hope she received them!

I received my package from Taiwan! Alisa from A Stitch In Between had my name and she way out did herself by sending more than just two fat quarters.

In addition to the two fat quarters she was required to send, she sent me an envelope pouch , a really cool postcard of Taiwan, and a bag hook.

The envelope pouch is so cute! I love getting mail, so this is the perfect pouch for me.
Even the back looks like an envelope!
These are the two fat quarters Alisa sent me. They are both bright and colorful. I love the striped fabric and the blue dots are so fun. I wonder what I should make with them?

The bag hook is essentially a metal round circle that opens up ito a hook. The whole thing opens up into a hook that you can put on a table so you can hang your purse or bag on it! I haven't had a chance to use it yet, but it is such a cool idea! I have never seen anything like it here in the U.S. before. I can't wait to try it out!

Thank you so much Alisa! You should all check out her blog. She has two adorable kids who she sews for and she has traveled the world. The blogging community is so great - you never know who you will meet or the friendships you will make!

I will leave you with this beautiful picture from my college town. Fall is by far my favorite time of year here - it is so beautiful!!
