Happy Mail Days

If you follow me on Instagram (@messyjesse1) you will know that I've had some happy mail recently...
... all the way from Japan! I just love receiving little packages in the post, and the happiest ones seem to come from Japan. I spyed those gorgeous square dot fabrics over in lovely Ayumi's shop recently, and after a few email exchanges we thought we would arrange a fun little fabric swap :) she's just the sweetest, just look at those yummy goodies she sent me! So if you haven't been to her shop before - check it out, it's amazing! Thank you so much Ayumi, I hope yours arrives safely to you soon :D The other delightful goodies came from the etsy shop BonsaiBlossom, they were having a 50% off opening sale, so I found myself making a snappy impulse purchase! :O I got a couple half yard cuts of some lecien and kokka prints, and some really pretty trim that I couldn't pass up. It came wrapped in the cutest gift bag I have ever seen!! I need to get some immediately :)
I found these little gems on Ebay of all places, a nice seller was auctioning off some of her 30's reproduction fabric. I'm slowly building up a nice collection now :) and I'm actually waiting on another fabric swap from another bloggy friend of mine over in Germany, she's got some 30's repro's for me too, I just can't get enough of them! ;) What have you been buying/swapping lately? Not that I need any more temptations! Jessie, xo


  1. How delightful! International packages are guaranteed to brighten any day. Love those checks.

  2. What great repro fabric! I was lucky enough to be able to raid my aunt's stash while on vacation last summer and snagged a ton of them - I want to use them for a sampler quilt like the Farmer's Wife one.

    I posted about my score here:

  3. Such gorgeous fabric. Sadly I've been buying nothing. My father banned me after getting annoyed at the postie for walking him up too early HA! =D

  4. LUST!!! Great choices! I'm making MYSELF a quilt this year (at some point!!) and I've got a little collection of 30s repro. love it!

  5. all so cute Jesse! glad to see you blogging so much and loving all your quilts. Can you believe I have never done a swap? Sounds like fun but I am not really a great collector like you :) Keep up all the great work!

  6. Ooohh beautiful fabric's, just lovely. I really like the Lecien prints..
    Thank you so so much for my crochet hook cozy, it's perfect and looks lovely in my little craft area. Thank you for the extra fabric pieces, I was chuffed as anything with the surprise. :-)

  7. Lovely colors! These fabrics are really beautiful, perfect for combinate with others to use in your quilt proyects.

  8. Hello Jessie! Your new fabrics are very beautiful. There are some really old treasures in this pile of 30s prints.
    I am really sorry that my parcel have not arrived yet. My last fabric parcel to the UK took less than a week. :-( I keep my fingers crossed that it will arrive soon!

  9. I'm so happy you like the fabrics I sent you, Jessie! I love fabrics from you so much! It was such a fun swap!!
    I too love the 30s reproduction fabrics! I just can't have enough of them!
