Last fall I signed up for a new BOM from Homestead Hearth. They have the best Block of the Month programs. I wasn't going to sign up for any more, I am already getting three of the BOM's, but I couldn't resist this one. It is the Civil War Tribute featuring Marcus Brothers repro fabrics. The program was to start in January and I have been patiently waiting all month to see the familiar manila envelope. The envelopes that I usually get are 5x7, I knew this one would be in a larger envelope, so I had several false alarms that it was here. Yesterday, hubby went to the mailbox so I had no idea that it had arrived. I did my exercise routine, messed around for a while, took a shower, then I saw the mail. I saw a manila envelope with the familiar return address. I was so excited, I couldn't wait to open it. The fabrics are perfect!! I wanted to get started today, but some unexpected and unwanted intestinal issues interfered with my sewing plans.
