I was being so good this week. I really was.
Then at 7:30 one night this week, the familiar UPS rap on the door. I spotted the box from The Fat Quarter Shop, and wondered what buttons I had poked in the middle of the night!
Inside was a beautifully gift-wrapped package! I've sent tons of gift-wrapped packages from The Fat Quarter Shop, but I've never received one in all these years! (FYI, for a very nomimal charge, Kimberly will wrap your gift in gorgeous paper and ribbons and mail them for you!)
When I opened the card, I burst out in tears. A very very very dear online friend sent this to me!
It's the Chloe's Christmas Quilt Kit! Oh, how I love this quilt. I had it in my cart last weekend but never finalized the sale! I love the traditional reds and greens of this quilt, and that's what kept pulling me back to it.
So I had to order the backing right away! :) And while I was ordering that, I went ahead and ordered two yards of other fabric for my basket blocks. I know, I know ... you don't have to say it!
Anyway, the kit contains 6.625 yards and 3.5 yards for the backing, plus extra two yards = 12.125 yards this week.
Thank you so much, my dear sweet friend! I was so surprised and am absolutely delighted! I love you!!!
What occurred to me yesterday afternoon while I was working on yet another BOM block is that I am sewing away but reporting nothing busted. I made a decision a long time ago to only count the BOMs fabric in and out when I have finished the top. I need to put those aside and finish up other projects just to get a bust!
