Pay it forward package

I received my package from the Pay it Forward swap...Mountain-Quiltist went above and beyond! She allowed me to choose between a quilt or fabric (she saw my "green-eyed monster" post)... I chose fabric and this is what I received on Christmas eve no less...

She promised 12 fat quarters but there was much more! I have decided to make a wall quilt as the primary color matches my walls perfectly... stay tuned!

Green Eyed Monster

This time of year no matter how hard I try, the little green eyed monster sits on my shoulder... One blog had pictures of everyone's Fabric Stashes- I am so jealous. My fabric stash is piddly. All I want for Christmas is a great fabric stash!

I have so much shopping to do and I feel very unmotivated and overwhelmed.

I hope this week goes a little better- 9 days til Christmas! UGH!!!
Here are some projects I have finished... whew!

Pay it forward...

I love this concept!

Mountain-Quiltist wrote about this on her blog as follows:
"Here's how it goes: I will send a handmade gift to the first 3 people who leave a comment on my blog requesting to join this Pay It Forward exchange. I don’t know what that gift will be yet and you may not receive it tomorrow or next week, but you will receive it. The only thing you have to do in return is pay it forward by making the same promise on your blog.

So, if you're one of the first 3 people to comment, copy and paste the above paragraph on your blog and share the crafty love! I do need to be able to get a hold of you somehow. If I can't get you for some reason I will choose the next person. You need to post here and then Post this Exchange on your blog and I will contact you."

Okay so I responded and now I'm joining her by posting this on my blog, so if you are among the first three to comment here and follow through on your blog, etc, etc, etc.....Please make sure that I can get in touch with you!

Winter is here for sure...

So what is a Northern girl, turned Southern girl, turned Northern girl to do? This is our first major snow storm in 10 years and it already isn't going well for my husband... But I am TOTALLY loving it! Of course we do not have a snowblower. So M had to shovel the whole driveway- he is not use to that so of course it was a major deal!
The kids, dog and I had fun though.....

Maybe today I can get some craft projects done!
