The Aurifil Has Landed plus some progress

Good morning , I am so pleased to tell you my Aurifil thread has arrived , wow , I am totally amazed .

 Arriving all the way from Italy inside two envelopes was this plastic container of thread , want to see inside ?
Just ask me was I happy when I lifted the lid and seen all these gorgeous colors of thread , oh  I was like a kid in a candy store , happy , happy , happy !! Thanks so much to Pat Sloan and the Aurifil company for this wonderful gift that I will thank them each and every time I stitch with them . If you are making the Aurifil BOM be sure to post a picture of your completed block to the Aurifil Flicker site and you could be a lucky winner too :-)
I have some progress on my little Primitive Quilts project to share ..

I just finished up the stitching , yeah I know I am pitifully slow but I do get there eventually . So now to get a backing on and get this quilted and ready to hang  , spring is just around the corner ,infact on our calendar tomorrow is officially the first day of spring for us . Oh I must tell you I added quite a few more flowers to my spring wall hanging and I like it so much better , think now I will do some quilting in the upper section , it really seems to need something ;-)
How is everyone coming along with their spring postcards , both of my cards have reached their destination so I thought you might be interested in seeing what I sent along . Both of my postcards had a long way to travel and the first one I am showing went all the way to Brazil to Eglea  . Elgea has already posted a picture of my postcard on her blog and I liked her picture so much I am borrowing it to share with you .
It was so neat to see it resting in the limb of a tree in Brazil . I chose to make a Robin as for me it is one of the first signs of spring . 
Next I sent off a postcard to Iraelia of San Juan and I got an email from her yesterday saying it has also arrived . Iraelia has no blog as of yet .
This basket of spring flowers winged its way to San Juan and I hope brightened Iraelia's day . Thanks so much ladies for swapping with me . 
 Thanks so much for stopping by today and hope your day is filled with all the things you love . 
 hugs Sheila

    O cartão é lindo, lindo! Não me canso de olhar para ele! Está na minha frente enquanto trabalho. Amei! Amei!
    O outro, com o vaso de flores, também é muito bonito mas... o robim é mais :)))
    Esta troca foi um prazer, espero que o carteiro não demore a bater na sua porta.
    Um abraço!
    Great color! I know the Aurifil threads ... Our materials are so different ...
    The design is gorgeous, gorgeous! I never tire of looking at it! Is in front of me while I work. Loved! Loved!
    The other, with vase of flowers is also very cute but ... Robim is more :)))

  11. Congrats on your thread win. I won one of those boxes last year when I did the BOM too. You will love the thread. I do.
    I got my postcard sent off last week and heard from my partner that mine is on its way. She hasn't got mine yet. It is going to Italy.
    Love your robin.

  12. The threads are absolutely gorgeous. Have fun with them. I love the primitive block. I've been told I'm a slow quilter and I simply respond that I enjoy the process so much I take my time. Your postcards are beautiful. The Robin just might be my favourite.
