Speaking of "paying it forward"......

When I wrote my previous post, I knew that a package was on it's way to my good blogging friend, Pat. I had mailed it on Monday and thought at the time, it was sort of a surprise "pay it forward" gift. Pat didn't know it was coming but I knew she would like it when it arrived. Some of you that follow Pat's blog know that she loves penquins. Well, I found that Snowman and penquin mug last year after Christmas and I have been waiting almost a year to fill it full of cocoa mixes and send it off to her. LOL! Then a couple weeks ago, I was going through a box of fabric panel pieces and I found this big penquin door panel. I knew right away it had to go off to Pat! It was a panel my mom had bought and was in her fabric stash, I mean "collection", that she gave me some time ago. If you "double-click" on the little photo you can see the full panel. Pat received the package yesterday and I got the nicest, "full of surprise" e-mail from her. Very fun! The panel may one day get finished in Pat's hands but here in my stash it would have just stayed folded on the shelf. So much more fun to pass along the fun!

And speaking of fun, I've had a good week, although busy. There were a couple quilting programs this past week and I have yet to load those photos to the computer. Coming soon!
While I had a good week, my husband has had a bad cold and worked from home most of the week. I am just hoping, I do not catch his cold. No time at this time of the year to be sick. My list is long...........outdoor lights to decorate the front porch, carols to sing, Christmas gifts to sew and some to buy, tree to decorate, carols to sing, cookies to bake, cards to send, carols to sing, and so much more .........and always singing carols along the way. I love this time of year!
