Today is my day "off" work from the LQS. So, today when I should be quiltin' up a storm....what do you think I am doing??? Well, I do have a quilt loaded and ready to go. But I have been having CHRISTMAS!!!
Look: I opened all my envelopes from the gals participating in the fabric swap within the Snowball Quilt Challenge!!! See, I told you ..... Christmas!!!
Cute packages, cute ric rac, cute little charms and a bonus cute silky fabric (in red and gold with a little blue shot through - I think this will make a great table mat with a little embroidery and applique') and not a single duplication of fabrics from all across this nation! Thank you all so much to my swap partners!!!
So then, I had to get MY snowball fabrics out and play with them and let them play with the new pieces:
Aren't they all great?!
This is why I had to wait to open the swap fabrics all at once. I would have had to have stalled every time I opened ONE. So, every day or two....open a package, fold it and hold it and take pictures of it and then play with the fabrics I already have, then put the new with the old and move them around and, and, and. You get the picture. I call it Fabric-itis. It's in the medical dictionary, I'm sure. So I waited and only stalled once, for a very long time!!
Then.... in yesterday's mail, I also received this:
Drat that Rouenneries French General Moda line!
But thank you quilt-this.com !!! Now I can make my "Irish Birds" even bigger and better!!!
OK, Really, off to make the HQ hum!
Another beautiful day in neighborhood!
