Magic Poppies for One Flower Wednesdays and packages in the mail........

"Being deeply loved by someone gives you strength, while loving someone deeply gives you courage."  -Lao Tzu



On her way to the Emerald City, the Wicked Witch cast a spell and Dorothy fell into a deep sleep in the magic poppy fields.............

  ......     
As I envision the poppy fields....it seems to me that since Dorothy is following the yellow brick road to the Emerald City, there must be bits of the road covered by the poppies......so I will have a few sections of the poppy fields include pieces of the yellow brick road in my wall hanging............Karen at Journey of a Quilter has a whole garden of lovely flowers where she hosts One Flower Wednesdays......Please click HERE to go see them all!

I got some wonderful mail this week!  I received this fabulous sushi bundle from Darlene at Sew Cal Gal from a giveaway I won on her blog........



Just look at this yummy fabric!  There are 18 pieces here of different batik prints!  Thank you, Darlene for a wonderful surprise....I love it all!

The next thing I received this week was 5 lucious fat quarters from Annie at Annies Ruby Slipperz
I won these FQ on her weekly giveaway and asked her to send me some Rainbow colors...........just look at these colors.....they are from Kaffe Fasset...........and this photo doesn't do the colors justice.........in "real life" they are so vibrant, they look like they jumped out of a Crayola marker box!  Thanks, Annie!

If you haven't checked out either of these great ladies' blogs I invite you to do so now.....click on the links above and have fun

Ok one more photo and I'm off to work on my Cross Terrain Apple quilt...........here is where I am now.........still not satisfied that this is big enough so I am adding a teal border followed by another white border.............will post that photo as soon as I'm done but for now here is how the Terrain Apple looks right now................



Will talk to you later.................TaTa For Now.......

I love the poppy flowers and the yellow brick center.

The Terrain is looking fabulous. How big will it be when you are finished?

Nice wins. I follow both of them and you are so right. They are both wonderful bloggers.

Yay for the poppy hexie flowers, a flower in a flower. I just finished reading about the poppy fields in "The Wizard of Oz." I'm amazed (well not really amazed) at all that I've forgotten from this story. Love your wins :) and love the way your Terrain Quilt is coming together.

I love your idea of the poppy fields with those beautiful hexies. Very cute. The Hoffman batiks may make lovely hexies too. Lots of possibilities.

I hope your good luck continues and you keep on winning.
