Good things come in big boxes!

Yesterday was a very busy day. It was a good one for the most part. And I did exactly as I said I would do......"make a list of the posts I need to do to catch up, etc......." And here's the first one! I also promised I would tell you my good news........and there are two parts to my good news. Just look at this big box full of lovely fabric and goodness that arrived at my door last week........... It came from my blogging friend, Jacquelynne at The*Noble*Wife. It's yards of her yummy fabric line "Sewing Room Social". Click here to check it out and then click on the Sewing Room Social button on her blog! Wouldn't you love to have some of it? Well, if you stay tuned to my blog you might get a chance to win one of those ribbon tied bundles or maybe a pattern or a few fat quarters. Most of the fabric, though, is for me to play with and I am so excited that I can hardly wait to start creating with these fun, spring fabrics! And you will see it all, right here on my blog!! Thanks, Jacquelynne, for sharing your abundance so I can share a little bit of creative fun with all of you, my readers. That was good news number one. :-)
Now here's good news number two. Last Friday, I got an e-mail that my blog is going to be gifted with a new arrival........a GO!Baby from AccuQuilt. That day, I had been out all day running errands, and a doctor visit and grocery shopping and when I finally got to reading my e-mails, I was so tired that at first, I didn't realize what I was reading. And then, I sat up and yelled "Yesssss!!" and I had to run downstairs and tell my husband the good news. He was happy for me but was more interested in his TV program. I ran right back upstairs to reply to the e-mail but then I waited til yesterday for a response to my reply. I didn't want to share the news if it wasn't for real. But it was for real and so then I had to choose three dies that I wanted and would use with a project on my blog. It was easy to pick three. However, I picked about ten times three so I will be doing some shopping because I want that little GO!Baby to have lots of "outfits" to change into. :-) You'll see what three dies I finally settled on when I share my project. And what fabric do you think I will be using for that first GO!Baby project? Why I do believe that I will be stitching up some "Sewing Room Social" right here in my sewing room! I wait expectantly for another box to arrive at my door and so while I wait..........I'll get to the next item I plan to blog about and that is Mug Rugs. Back soon with photos and a tutorial for the mug rugs or Cookie Coaster as I have called my version.
Have a great day!
Sandi

Congratulations on the "new arrival" BABY expected at your house soon. I can't wait to hear which dies you chose. The fabric you got is lovely, too!!! All of this good news should go far in helping you ignore the white stuff still on the ground out there. LOL

Oh my goodness the gift fairies were looking down on you today!!! Can't wait to see what you make with all your new goodies.

AKnativewoman said...

Oh, that's really lovely fabric! I did go over to her blog to see the 2 pages of prettiness . . . lucky you to get all of that! And remember what I said about acquiring dies - it's an obsessive streak in me, but you know, it's a necessary one . . . you know what they say about eating potato chips - same thing with dies . . . can't stop with just one - heheheh!
