Hello Out There...........

Here in Ohio we are on our second round of snow for February. I have been "trapped" in my house for almost 2 weeks now, I did get out to grocery shop on Sunday, just before the 2nd storm hit. I think we are up to 18 inches now. The kids have been out of school since Feb 5th and they are off again tomorrow. I am slowly going crazy!!!

On to better things! Did you see what I won! I never win anything and I was super excited to get the message from Stephanie of Jonquils & Ladybugs that I had won her giveaway! I got my lovely package in the mail last week amidst all of the snow and it made my day much brighter! I love the tote it will be my new library tote when I get to go back outside :) I love a good bag of scraps so many possibilities and the yarn is wonderful! Stephanie has a great blog and a lovely etsy shop! Stop by and say hi!
I was also so excited to get my Hope Valley Fabric in the mail today! Jona of Fabritopia is running a sale right now you can get this collection along with some other great designers for 20% off right now through Feb 20th!
So pretty, these will be for a quilt!
I stopped by JoAnns on my Sunday outing and they were having a huge sale so I stocked up on lots of Kona Solids!
And I can never resist when thread is 50% off!!!I do believe these will be for my Block Swap Quilting Bee.These are for a baby quilt.And finally I bought this book I look at it every time I go to the fabric shop so I finally bought it! It has lost of great quilting patterns!

I hope it is warm where you are, though I did see on the news recently there was snow "of some form" in 49 states! Spring can not come soon enough!

Have a Happy Day! Meg

What a great giveaway to win. And such ice looking fabrics you bought.

I liked to see you are in Ohio. I am in the Netherlands, but work with a US company in Dover OHIO. So fun to see they are likely also stuck in snow. I'll ask them tomorrow when I speak to them again.

We just went through the snow here. Our schools opened today after nearly 2 weeks off. I did go crazy.

That bag is awesome! Enjoy the Hope Valley. I really need to get my hands on some...

I have a question regarding your baby doll carrier pattern in the one-yard wonders book and did not see any other way to contact you. Did you use fusible fleece on both the outer and lining fabrics, thus 2 layers of fleece?
