Well, like so many, the tackling of paperwork+books+receipts+inventory+forms=TAX TIME!! Finally finished and all out the door. Which was perfect timing as we are in another huge snow storm. But while I stressed thru the above, lots of wonderful things came to my door to bighten my days. This lovely 'bit o' the green' came from Wendy-aka StitchDuchess as part of the 12" Mini Swap group. And a cute FQ and lovely card.
I, also, won with two different random draws with the Project Quilting bi-weekly challenges. A great one yard piece of hand dyed blue from Chris at Dye Candy Fabrics which will work into the Forest QAL I am sure. And a Fiber Packet from Pam of For Quilts Sake. Some lite batiks , various fibers, buttons, and beads. This I am saving for our Quilt Guild summer challenge.
And lovers of Laurel Birch fabrics - eat your hearts out! The lovely Erin aka Vesuviusmama was de-stashing with a first come - first serve for some great pieces. I lucked out totally.
This was such a large piece that I had to photo it in half. I just am so in love with this piece of fabric, thank you so much Erin. This will be my NewFo project maybe in Nov, so I have a great quilt for Dec. YES, I plan on cutting this apart, don't drop of a heart attack.
I was fortunate to win this magazine from the Quilty Pleasures QM blog during their anniversary and block celebration. I cannot wait to browse thru this - seen parts on their blog - and I know my 'project list' is going to grow.
I received a box from Joyce of Texas -- get to this later. As I was laying out the goodies of course the Tuxedo Moe just had to lay claim to this pile!
This is all the loveliness laid out - minus a cat! Now I keep a file folder for win notifications so I can check when they come in - AND - so I can send out an appropriate Thank You card. Do you thank your gift host when you win??? So, I cannot find info anywhere on this one, if someone out there remembers, Kick My Butt!! I have the address from the box, but the card only had a first name (no blog listed) - I really want to send out a thank you. *** She kicked my own butt - Joyce aka Young By Design, thank you so much for all this goodness***
