Busy, Busy and Thank Yous

If you look super duper close at my middle finger you can see a callus developing on it. I've been stitching samples for Treasured Threads the last few days. The stitcheries are done and are waiting for the borders. I'll have photos of them tomorrow. I didn't even notice the callus until I finished stitching last night. It doesn't hurt, but does feel rough.
Today I went to visit my LQS. I hadn't been there in a few weeks. Earlier this week they sent out an email with a 30% off coupon so I decided to go see what they had. I found some Winnie-The-Pooh fabric on clearance and bought the remaining five yards. DIL is a Pooh fan so I'm sure this will become something for the new baby.

As I was browsing I found this wonderful fabric. And what makes it so wonderful?
It coordinates with the galoshes fabric I bought in July!!! See the 9-patch on it?
I bought enough to make backing for the quilt.
I also found the Jelly Baby by Whistlepig Creek Productions pattern at the store. I've been thinking about buying this pattern for a long time (long before I knew a baby is on the way).

I've been remiss and have forgotten to post my Thank You to two bloggers who have sent me goodies lately. The goodies below are from Deb at Creative Soul. She had a contest asking us to show her some of our journal pages. I was one of the winners. The package included a new journal, mini photo frames, inspiration stickers and some gorgeous notecards. Thank you, Deb! I will enjoy using all these items in my journaling. Ooooh, I just a great idea, I'm going to use this new journal to write to the new grandbaby.
My other thank you goes to Toni at the Red Boot Company. She recently showed some fungly blocks and decided she didn't want them. She offered to send them to the first person who responded and that was me! I love them! I have a couple of ideas for them, but for now they have to wait their turn in the To Do list.

Have a good evening!
Sweet P
