Thank You!

Yesterday I got home to find an unexpected package at the post office. When I opened it up I found the cutest little house ornament from Stephanie...thank you Stephanie! The colors and the fabrics are delightful...I just love it! It will hang year round in my sewing room!

A little bit later in the afternoon my younger daughter found a UPS delivery at the front door. She announced that it was the Moda box I had been looking for! In December I entered a contest at the Moda FabricMatcher website...and earlier this month I found out that I won the random drawing for December's contest! As I began opening the box, younger daughter started taking pictures!

There were lots of fun things inside the Moda Bake Shop tote that I pulled from the box...


First there was fabric...a Dessert Roll of "Glace'," a Jelly Cake of "Northern Solitude," a Jelly Roll of "Oh Cherry Oh," a Layer Cake of Mary Englebreit's "Baskets of Flowers," and a Charm Pack of "Ruby's Flower Garden!"


There were also lots of other great surprises... including the book Designer Quilts: Great Projects from Moda's Best Fabric Artists which includes biographies and quilt patterns...looking through the book I noticed that it was autographed by many of the artists including Alma Allen, Barb Adams, Joanna Figueroa, Sandy Gervais, Sandy Klop, Deb Strain, and Terry Clothier Thompson!


I also received a lovely Moda sewing tote which has zippered compartments galore!


Rounding out the package were a quilt ruler, a notions zipper case, 3 spools of Mettler thread, Schmetz Sharp machine needles, and a Clover Sewing needle set!
So, thank you to Stephanie, and thank you to Moda...and thank you to all of the creative bloggers who inspire me every day! The best way I can think of to say "thank you" is to have a give-away....so I'll have to put on my thinking cap and think of somethin!

Happy Sewing!

Sherri, you are one lucky lady!! Two great packages in one day!! I actually found your blog through Moda's website, and I fell in love with the house square at the top. My husband likes it very much also. Looks like you will have lots of fun with your new Moda toys. love that company. I am new to the quilting scene. Working on my second quilt right now, and cannot wait until it's done so I can move on to my third. Thank you for having a cute blog. I look forward to seeing what you do this year.
