The day I have been waiting for...

Remember the Moda Progressive Dinner from earlier this year?  Well I was the lucky winner from Jenny Garland's blog won the Fresh Fabric Treats book and get this...a fat quarter bundle of Jovial by Basic Grey...yes, a whole big stinkin' bundle of 39 fat quarters!!!  I have been patiently waiting for the day for the book to be released.....and tonight was the night...I was watching TV and there was a knock on the door...only the UPS man knocks on the door at my house...then I started thinking hmmmmm I have not ordered any fabric recently that is coming by UPS so I hestitantly opened the front door.  What to my wondering eyes should appear but a big brown box with a United Notions Dallas, Tx. return address!!  My heart went pitter patter and I jumped for joy...this is just what I needed to make an otherwise crazy day the Sponge Bob for that quote)
Here is what I found in my box:

I just want to say Thank You again to Moda and Jenny for making a little girl like me super happy!

Max & Whiskers update....finally!

Wow, didn't realize returning to work after 7 weeks off would be so rough...I guess life did go on without me there!  Needless to say I have not have much time for sewing.  I finally finished my Max & Whiskers top last night and really love it!  I used Camille's Coming Home pattern from her super fab book Simplify.  I made it larger by using two charm packs.  This is a super fast patern with a lot of impact.  I, being a fan of Camille's recommend it for anyone.  Enough of the chit is the finished for the backing, batting and quilting!
