I didn't get much sewing done this week... a few quilt-along blocks and my weekly pillowcase. But that's ok - my birthday was this week and I went out of town for a few days.
Guess what I got for my birthday... Fabric!! I know, you're surprised.
Look at all that wonderful eye candy!
The tall stack in the back is Tranquility by Sandy Gervais for Moda (gift from Hubby). In front of that is Za Za by Erin Michael for Moda (gift to myself) and Collection for a Cause supporting Alzheimer's Association from Moda
Then there's Simply Sweet by Quilt Soup (another gift to myself), 2 Charm Packs and 1 Jelly Roll of Boutique by Chez Moi for Moda (gift from my mom), a Charm Pack of Eden by Lila Tueller for Moda (also a gift from my mom) and Plum by Tula Pink for Moda (gift from my daugher)
And I have a great story about the Collection for a Cause fat quarter set... I ordered fabric from an online shop and was so excited when I saw the package on my front door Wednesday afternoon. But imagine my disappointment when I opened it up, and instead of my order, there was the Collection for a Cause. I called the customer service number in hopes that they would pay for the return postage (and make sure what I ordered was set aside for me since there weren't many left when I ordered.) And guess what the lady told me... not only would they send my order out right away, but I could KEEP what they sent!!! 40 Fat Quarters!! Wow - I couldn't believe it.
So, to honor their generosity I'm having a giveaway of my own. Isn't this just the cutest little bag from United Notions? Just leave me a comment between now and Thursday noon (central) and I'll send it along to one lucky winner. I'll post the winner Thursday evening.
