Monthly Happy Mail!

Happy Mail Day to meeeee, Happy Mail Day to meeeee!

The last few weeks have flown by (my baby is now 3 weeks old!) and my mailbox has been empty.  Four kids = less time to browse Etsy for fabric I don’t actually need.  My husband is pretty impressed with my newfound “restraint”.  😉


Today I finally had some fun stuff in the mailbox thanks to my two favorite monthly subscriptions:  Cotton Cuts and Darn Good Yarn of the Month!

Cotton Cuts Fabric

Surprise fabric in the mail is always a day-maker.  Strawberries, vintage florals and bright summery colors are exactly what I’d imagine right at the start of summer!  Everything about this bundle is just adorable.  A quick and fun quiz while signing up lets the Cotton Cuts team know what your taste is, and each month they curate a bundle in the cut size of your choice.  I like fat quarters, so I went with fat quarters, of course!

You may not know, but I was the lucky winner of the Cotton Cuts Lifetime Giveaway last fall!  Each month I receive 12 fat quarters of fabric customized to my liking.  I can’t even begin to tell you how excited I am to find American Jane fabric in this month’s box!  I’m so grateful for my monthly gift from my friends at Cotton Cuts.  If you visit their site, you can receive 10% off your first month when you sign up for their email list!

Darn Good Yarn of the Month

This month’s Darn Good Yarn of the Month is a new product:  silk tweed!  I really wish photos could pick up the detail of the tweed and do it proper justice.  Each month for $10/month I get to do my (small) part in providing fair trade jobs for women in India who spin this yarn from recycled sari silk.  They have safe jobs and can help provide for their families.  How cool is that?  You can read more about fair trade and why it matters so much to me HERE.

I’m working on finishing up my Sweet Treats Blocks and have a free, simple, summer-sewing quilt pattern in the works for next month if all goes as planned.  Subscribe to be the first to know… I’ll have a Sevenberry fabric bundle giveaway here on the blog when the pattern is ready to go!

Hope your summer is starting off great,
