Someone do the happy dance with me :cD


I have to say I have had quite a good weekend. It started when I received a wonderful package in the mail on Saturday. One of my groups did a game and I was lucky enough to win a great package of winter themed and colored goodies. I love getting packages like this one...soooo much better than the neverending stream of bills that the mailman seems to deliver :c) Then I was able to get outside Saturday before the cold came and settled in and get in a 6 mile run. It felt soooo good to get a nice long run in. Then I was able to find some sewing time and was able to get this done.....

Yup, here it is! The first finish of 2008!! (can you tell I'm excited :cD ) Just finished hand stitching down the binding today. The mouselings had a snow day, so I wasn't really sure if I would get it done, but it has been bitter cold outside all day. I think we may have reached a 'high' of 16 degrees today, so it was a great day to stay inside as much as possibe and sew when I could. It's supposed to stay pretty cold here and snow tonight so I may have another good excuse to stay inside and quilt tomorrow too ;) Just gonna wait and see. Well, I'm off to cruise around blog land a little bit and have a celebratory cup of hot cocoa. Hope everyone had a great weekend. Warm country wishes!

I LOVE your sampler quilt - it is fantastic. The background fabric you used really makes it sing. Very well done !!
