A Joyous Day!!

My dear friends, Kimberly and Kevin from The Fat Quarter Shop, and, of course, the adorable Miss Emma, have TWO new additions to their family. Two beautiful baby boys were born today! And to celebrate, there's a give-away at their Jolly Jabber blog! Please go visit their blog and leave a comment to be in the drawing for two fat quarter bundles! Fair warning: Be ready to say a big "Awwwwww" when you see the precious picture of Emma! She's such a doll!



And another joyous occasion today was a box from Julie at Jaybird Quilts! I love pincushions, and I'm delighted that I was a winner of one of the beautiful pincushions she made and so generously gave away! Thank you, sweetie! I love it! You're SO talented!!

Oh, my, this has been quite a day! To quote Jocelyn, we were on "pins and needles" waiting for the baby news. I found myself alternately pacing and staring at a boring spreadsheet on my desk! Hopefully pictures will be posted soon, and their names will be revealed! :) :) :)

Yes, it has been quite exciting in blogland today! I already entered, but I kinda don't want to win. Seriously - do I NEED to show anymore fabric coming in??? :)

Oh, geez, I forgot an important new rule here!!

Fabric won doesn't count as incoming stash!! :) :) :)

Lovely pincushion - how lucky for you! Thanks for giving us the news about the Jolly babies! I'm glad to hear your puppy is feeling better - it's so hard when our four-legged friends get sick - I always feel so helpless! Good luck with your new stash-busting project!
